If you only read one thing today, let it be this one because it’s a BIG one. Disney is celebrating the 100,000th Disney wish granted globally, as well as 90 years of Mickey Mouse, by inviting fans to Share Your Ears to help make life-changing wishes come true for children with critical illnesses. You can participate! From November 4th through November 27th of this year, take a photo showing off your “Mickey Mouse Ears” or any creative “ears.” Then upload the photo to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. Disney will donate $5 to Make-A-Wish®, up to US $1 million, for every public photo posted with #ShareYourEars.
Then Make-A-Wish Foundation can grant even more wishes!
This wonderful program is part of the Disney Team of Heroes commitment to delivering comfort and inspiration to families around the world. I have so many fond memories of wearing Disney ears, and I love that such a fun photo will help the Make A Wish Foundation! Now I have to narrow down all my Share Your Ears photos I have readily available at all times.
My favorite ears photo of her was taken at her first time to Disney. I’ll never forget her face when we were on the Monorail. What a day that was! I have to say, though, that it hasn’t gotten old yet. I don’t think it ever will.
Our first Disney trip was booked pretty fast. The flight was pretty fast. The day there went very slowly, but it was just a day, after all. In a long series of days, made different by how it changed our lives, only in the ways that we fulfilled a little girl’s dreams. And revisited some of our own. We remembered. We grieved. And we delighted. It was one day to do it all.
And I want to help grant wishes. So, don’t forget! Do it today. Do it now! Celebrate Mickey’s 90th with a gift to Make-A-Wish! Disney will donate US $5 for every “ear” photo (traditional or creative) publicly posted on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with #ShareYourEars from Nov. 4 through Nov. 17, 2018 up to US $2 million!
