The Walt Disney Company Donates $1 Million Towards The Make-A-Wish-Foundation

The Walt Disney Company and Make-A-Wish have in partnership for the past 40 years and have granted more than 145,000 Disney inspired wishes for children with endangering illnesses. Chairman & CEO of Disney, Bob Chapek shared the other day during the Disney Wish presentation for Disney Cruise Line shared the news to reach out towards all Make-A-Wish children with all different backgrounds for the recent 5th key towards the company for “Inclusion” and diversity.

The presentation the other day was ended with a musical performance by Disney on Broadway star and International Performing Artist Syndee Winters of the iconic song for “When You Wish Upon A Star” as children and young adults represent the thousands who have had Disney Cruise Line wishes granted throughout the last 20 years.

Three Make-A-Wish families shared their stories with us. For these families, the wish of a Disney cruise gave them something far greater than they ever could’ve imagined: newfound confidence, strength, family togetherness, new friendships, and most importantly, hope.
