Hats Off to Each of the One Million Volunteers!

Disney’s Give  A Day Get A Day has Closed!

We’ve reached our goal of inspiring one million people to volunteer a day of service to their communities, so the “Give a Day. Get a Disney Day.” program has now ended. Well, we knew it would happen, but didn’t expect it to happen this quickly!  Disney’s Give a Day, Get a Disney Day program has officially closed.  It has only been 2 months.

One million people have volunteered (or signed up to volunteer) and received vouchers for a theme park ticket, a special fastpass, an EarHat figurine with exclusive trading pins, or the option to donate their park ticket to a participating charity.  People from all over the world have gotten involved in volunteering.

Disney has put a lot into this program, creating a new parade starring the Muppets, throwing a huge media event (Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato even sang!) and breaking a world record with the largest sculpture of canned goods ever made.

Even though the program is over, Disney is still encouraging guests to volunteer in their communities through the HandsOn Network.

At the American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter we had 50 people give of their time to earn their ticket to Disney.  Thank you to everyone who participated and keep volunteering!!!

Give a Day to Your Red Cross, Get a Day at Disney

The American Red Cross Lakeland chapter is a excited to be one of the participating community organizations in the “Give a Day. Get a Disney Day.” program. Disney wants to inspire one million people to volunteer a day of service in their community and by participating you can get a 1-day, 1-theme park ticket to the Disneyland Resort or Walt Disney World Resort. To find out more about the terms and conditions visit their website.

You must pre-register but the process is very easy. It takes less than ten minutes if you know where you want to volunteer and here at the Red Cross we hope we can make that easy for you. Participants can use their tickets until December 15, 2010, but hurry to sign up because ticket quantities are limited.

If you want to participate as a volunteer but can’t make it to Disney you can still be part of the fun. You can donate your ticket to a non-profit organization designated by Disney Parks including the  Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern California.
