  • Disney Doubles Its Donation For #ShareYourEars Campaign Thanks To You!

2017-12

Fans around the world helped unlock $1 million donation, which Disney doubled to $2 million due to the overwhelming outpouring of support to grant life-changing wishes to children fighting critical illnesses. Thanks to the support of everyone and our amazing friends at Disney Parks, more lives will be transformed by our mission!

Since the very first wish in 1980, Disney and Make-A-Wish® together have granted more than 120,000 life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. For more than 37 years, we’ve seen how a wish can play a critical role in a child’s treatment, replacing fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope. Wishes matter so deeply to us and to the children and the families around the world who experience them. 

This holiday season, millions of fans around the world helped us celebrate their support by “Sharing their Ears”. Once again, Disney Parks invited fans to share the joy and “Share Your Ears” to help Make-A-Wish grant even more wishes for children fighting critical illnesses. This heartfelt and engaging campaign helped guests unlock $5 donations from Disney to Make-A-Wish – up to $1 million – through fun and simple consumer activation. Due to the overwhelming response and amazing support, Disney doubled the donation to $2 million to grant even more wishes to transform lives!

Thanks to you, $2 million will help grant even more awe-inspiring wishes this year! We appreciate Disney and all of our supporters for participating in this year’s campaign to transform the lives of wish kids, their families and communities around the world!
