If you haven’t already heard about the “ShareYourEars” initiative, then it’s time you do! This is the 3rd year of the campaign and basically, the way it works is that from now until November 17, 2018, take a photo showing off your “Mickey Mouse ears” – or any creative “ears” – and upload it to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. For every public post with the hashtag #ShareYourEars, Disney will donate US $5 to Make-A-Wish, up to US $2 million to grant even more wishes.
Your photo can be one where you sport your actual “Mickey Ears” or you can get creative using apples or bagels or CD’s as ears…Get creative!
This year is an extra-special one to #ShareYourEars, because it is Mickey’s 90th birthday! I can only surmise that in lieu of gifts, Mickey would LOVE to see support for this cause that helps make wishes come true 😉
“It is a tremendous honor to support children whose wish is to come to Disney. Wish granting exemplifies the magic our 160,000 cast members and Imagineers create for guests all over the world every day,” said Bob Chapek, Chairman, Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products. “With this third #Share Your Ears campaign, we’ll get to make a difference in the lives of even more children and families.”
Since 1980, Disney has helped Make-A-Wish grant more than 130,000 wishes. This extraordinary relationship has helped wish kids around the world replace fear with confidence, sadness with joy, and anxiety with hope. Currently, more than 10,000 Disney wishes are granted every year and we are so excited to help this number continue to grow!
#ShareYourEars is part of the Disney Team of Heroes philanthropic initiative, which launched in March 2018 with a $100 million commitment to transform the children’s hospital experience and provide comfort and inspiration for kids and families.
