Don't you just LOVE it when you see a major corporation doing some good??
That's why we're pumped to hear that Disney, as part of National Preparedness Month this September, has announced a $1 million grant to help kids and families prepare for disasters and other emergencies!
“We are so thankful to Disney for their support of the American Red Cross. Their generosity and collaboration is showing the public, especially our youth, how easy it is to prepare for the unexpected. Disney is helping us to prepare communities across the U.S., and they’re by our side as we respond to disasters.”
The Red Cross Pillowcase Preparedness Program is an initiative that eases children’s fears about disasters, emergencies and evacuations, and it will be tried first in New Orleans and Los Angeles.
Here's what Disney said:
“It’s essential for families to be prepared so kids feel safe in an unpredictable situation. With the compassion and expertise of the Red Cross, along with Disney’s unique position to reach millions of households, together we hope to educate and empower families across the country with the tools and resources they need to feel secure in any environment.”
Amazing — and we could agree more that kids should be prepared!
Thank you, Disney!!
What a huge help!
