Disney donates one million masks to kids and families


It’s difficult enough to get kids to wear a hat, but face masks? I admire parents who can achieve this.

Disney may have the solution. You can now wear a cloth face mask featuring your favorite Disney, PixarMarvel and Star Wars characters. And they come in all sizes.

Disney has donated a million masks to families in vulnerable communities and also offer the new character face masks for sale online at Shop Disney.

Disney announced that it plans to donate up to $1 million in profits from the sales of the masks in the U.S. to Medshare, an Atlanta-based nonprofit that delivers medical supplies and equipment to communities around the world.
