Disney Donates $3 Million to Make-A-Wish Thanks to #ShareYourEars Campaign

We previously announced that Disney was running an amazing campaign for donations to Make-A-Wish.  During the campaign, guests from all over where encouraged to share pictures of themselves and their loved ones with Mickey ears as part of the #ShareYourEars.  Over hundreds of thousands of Disney fans participated and resulted in Disney donating US $3 million to Make-A-Wish.  This amazing donation will make a huge different for many children and families all around the world.


Disney has been working Make-A-Wish for many years.  The cause helps grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses so that they can have special moments with their families.  Currently, nearly 10,000 Disney wishes are granted every year with Make-A-Wish, helping wish kids replace fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
