Disney’s Charitable Acts of Love
Now there’s a reason to love Disney more. . . part from making the coolest characters that kids and kids-at-heart love, the company that is made out of pure love actually does a lot of charitable works. In fact, it probably is the most active company that supports the welfare of marginalized children.
There are three priorities to Disney’s charity: Health, enhancing kids’ creativity, and preservation of nature.
Health of Kids
Just like some nice actors and actresses from Hollywood do, Disney often visits hospitals and surprises kids. Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and the rest of the gang entertain kids to lift their spirits up for a speedy recovery. Apart from visiting hospitals, Disney donates monetary funds to help families prepare for natural calamities or man-made disasters.
Disney’s reach goes way beyond the sick kids, too. It tries to warm the heart of children who lost their parents from military service. It basically does what some charities operating in countries that are ravaged by war do for those who do not get basic needs because no one will provide it for them. Education, health, and food are all important for Disney, and it does everything it can to make the world better for kids.
Kids are full of energy and Disney tries to redirect this by spearheading activities that enhance the creativity of children. How? By hosting hands-on, after-school educational activities to communities that do not have a lot of activities lined up for kids.
Conservation of Nature
Disney is also into preserving nature. It aids charitable organizations who plant trees and try to harness energy through renewable means. Apart from these, Disney also hosts talks that teach kids about the importance of preserving nature and the animals that depend on it.
With this knowledge in mind, it’s easier to support Disney’s products and attractions. A good part of the money that people pay to them is used for the greater good of not only humans but the world we live in as well.
