Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Reveals Make-A-Wish Collection
Some really great things here and it is so nice to see companies and people still doing good things for those in need.
Disney Parks, Experiences and Products is unveiling its very first collection inspired by and benefitting Make-A-Wish® — the Wishes Come True Blue color collection. This new offering commemorates the 40-year relationship between Disney and Make-A-Wish, with even more special product offerings to come later this year.
Wishes Come True Blue is the first-ever Disney color collection that pays tribute to a nonprofit’s impact and supports the ongoing collaboration between Make-A-Wish and Disney. The Wishes Come True Blue color collection is the latest in the popular series of Disney color collections and features the debut of two all-new products, including the first-ever adjustable Mickey Mouse ear headband for kids of all abilities to wear with comfort and joy, as well as the first cloth face masks by Spirit Jersey®. In honor of this launch, Disney is donating 10,000 cloth face masks from the collection to Make-A-Wish to provide to wish kids across the United States.
For the purchase of each item in the collection now through World Wish Day 2021 (April 29, 2021) in the US, Canada and across Europe, Disney will donate 25 percent of the purchase price (up to US $500,000) to Make-A-Wish. This collection will be available starting Oct. 22 at select Disney Parks around the world, Disney store locations in North America and on shopDisney.com and shopDisney.co.uk.
Following the Disney Parks fan-favorite color collections, Arendelle Aqua and Belle of the Ball Bronze, this new collection features the distinct Make-A-Wish blue hue and reminds people around the world of wish granting. This collection offers a wide assortment of products including: spirit jerseys, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse ear headbands, a mini backpack and wristlet by Loungefly, leggings, baseball caps and more.
“It’s been an honor to work with Disney to grant wishes and create priceless memories for so many families. I hope this new collection of Make-A-Wish-inspired items will bring joy to guests much like Disney wishes have brought joy to wish kids for the last 40 years,” said Make-A-Wish president and CEO, Richard K. Davis. “Disney is the largest wish-granter on earth, and we’re thankful for everyone who helps transform lives by supporting our organization and making wishes come true.”
For the past 40 years, Disney and Make-A-Wish have been providing magic to wish kids and their families when they need it most, starting with the very first wish granted at Disneyland park in 1980. Disney is the largest wish granter in the world, having fulfilled more than 140,000 wishes globally, and one out of every two wishes granted by Make-A-Wish in the United States.
Over the next two months, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products will reveal even more global product offerings that will benefit Make-A-Wish and celebrate the 40-year relationship.
