November - December
One Simple Wish
Help Share The Joy with foster youth this holiday season. Without stepping foot into a mall or toy store, you can grant a foster child’s holiday wish through One Simple Wish.
One Simple Wish brings national attention to the foster care system, brightening the lives of thousands of children by making their voices heard and connecting them with people who care. Since 2008 they've brought love, hope and joy to over 35,000 children all over the United States through their innovative programs; giving these children the support they need to thrive and succeed.
As part of the "Share the Joy" holiday campaign, Disney, ABC and Feeding America have teamed up to inspire healthier generations by expanding access to fresh produce and nutritious foods in communities where kids and families need it most. Disney has announced a $1 million donation to Feeding America to help strengthen communities. To learn more, visit FeedingAmerica.org/BeInspired.
In the spirit of service to our communities, Disney ABC partners with Feeding America every holiday season to support food banks’ abilities to deliver nutritious foods to kids after school, create access points within communities throughout the country and provide food-insecure children with nutritious meals that will fuel creativity in their school and play.
Increasing the access kids have to nutritious foods and engaging audiences to take action is a part of The Walt Disney Company’s long-standing commitment to making healthy lifestyles accessible, simple, and fun for families. As such, Disney ABC’s “Share the Joy” helps provide a helping hand and much-needed food to families facing hunger.
Toys for Tots
Disney ABC "Share the Joy" is brightening the lives of others this holiday season and you can "Share the Joy" by inspiring others too! Disney VoluntEARS, Cast Members, employees and others will donate thousands of new, unwrapped toys to bring joy to kids and families in local communities. Join us, donate a toy to a deserving family today! Visit ToysforTots.org/BeInspired to learn more.
For more than 60 years, The Walt Disney Company has supported the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Foundation as a way to connect with children and families in need during the holiday season. Our relationship with Toys for Tots began in 1948 when Walt Disney and his animators personally designed the original Toys for Tots train logo that is still used today. Every year, Disney and DATG join the hundreds of communities across the country to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community.
