In addition, Walt Disney Parks & Resort's Share Your Ears campaign, recipient of a Silver Halo, helped celebrate the 100,000th Disney wish granted through their partnership with Make-A-Wish® and the 60th anniversary of the Disneyland Resort. Fans were invited to take a picture wearing Disney Mouse Ears and share it online using the #ShareYourEars hashtag. For each photo posted, Disney Parks donated $5 to Make-A-Wish®. The response was so positive, Disney Parks doubled the original $1 million donation to $2 million. To learn more about how many people shared their ears, click here.
