In this hard time of the COVID-19 pandemic, Disney took an initiative to donate $1 million for the underserved population. Disney is selling non-medical face masks in the US featuring its fictional characters including Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars. All the profit, estimated up to $1 million, will be donated to MedShare, a non-profit humanitarian aid organization. However, these masks are not for the use of medical professionals.
These masks are designed as per the Mask Guidelines of CDC (Centre for Disease Control and Prevention). These masks include Anna and Elsa from Frozen, Woody, and Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story, The Avengers, R2-D2, Baby Yoda, and many more.
”We realize this is a challenging time for families and wearing any type of mask can be daunting. Our hope is that Disney’s cloth face masks featuring some of our most beloved characters will provide comfort to the families, fans, and communities that are so important to us”Edward Park, senior vice president of Disney store and shopDisney said in a statement.
“Disney’s donations will make a tremendous impact in the communities we serve”Charles Redding, CEO and president of MedShare said in a statement.
A pack of four masks costs $19.99 and is now available for pre-order in Disney’s online store. Also, a variety of sizes are available including children’s size. Masks will be available by July 15th.
