EARS to you!
Yes, you! On behalf of The Walt Disney Company and Make-A-Wish®, thank you for showing off, posting and hashtagging your EAR-resistable “Mickey Mouse ears” and creative “ears” photos as part of this year’s #ShareYourEars campaign! Your incredible photos will help Make-A-Wish grant life-changing wishes for kids with critical illnesses around the world.
We are having fun watching the original and creative ways you’re sharing your Mickey-inspired ears in honor of Mickey’s 90th. So much fun in fact, that to keep Mickey’s 90th celebration going, Disney has added a second phase to the #ShareYourEars campaign!
“In 2018, we’ve taken our collaboration with Make-A-Wish to a new level. This year’s #ShareYourEars Campaign is our biggest, yet. This year, we’re giving up to $3 million – our largest donation, ever,” said Bob Chapek, Chairman, Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products.
From November 18 through Giving Tuesday on November 27, 2018, take a photo showing off your “Mickey Mouse ears” – or any creative “ears” – and upload it to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. For every public post with #ShareYourEars, Disney will donate US $5 to Make-A-Wish, up to US $1 million – for a total goal of US $3M – to grant even more wishes.
Don’t own a pair of Mickey ears? No problem! Get crafty and try two bagels, tennis balls or even plates as ears. If you’re planning a trip to Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort or Disneyland Paris, try to find all of the #ShareYourEars mural walls, exclusively designed for the campaign by Walt Disney Imagineering. Whether in your home or in front of Cinderella Castle, it’s never been easier to show your support, celebrate Mickey’s birthday and #ShareYourEars!
So grab your friends and family, post a picture of your finest pair of “ears” to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #ShareYourEars and spread some chEAR!
