It’s becoming more and more crucial to abide by public health officials during the current COVID-19 pandemic. Wearing face coverings or masks is increasingly important but what’s more important is that we don’t buy medical-grade face masks that should be worn by healthcare workers. To help, companies like Roots and many more have been manufacturing reusable masks. Another company joining in and creating face masks is Disney and now you can get them with your favourite characters on them to keep the magic alive!
These face masks feature not only Disney characters, but Marvel, Pixar, and Star Wars, too and they can be preordered on the Disney website.
“We realize this is a challenging time for families and wearing any type of mask can be daunting,” says Edward Park, senior vice president, Disney store and shopDisney. “Our hope is that Disney’s cloth face masks featuring some of our most beloved characters will provide comfort to the families, fans and communities that are so important to us.”
To help even more, Disney is donating one million cloth face masks for children and families who live in underserved and vulnerable communities across the U.S.
But that’s not all! Disney will donate the proceeds of all masks sold, up to $1 million to MedShare, the company that’s distributing the donated masks.
“Disney’s donations will make a tremendous impact in the communities we serve,” says Charles Redding, CEO and president of MedShare. “Their contribution of one million Disney cloth face masks will be provided to families in underserved communities and organizations working to limit the spread of COVID-19, while their monetary donation will be used to support the medical community’s ongoing efforts to provide lifesaving care to those who need it most.”
The cloth face masks come in three sizes and are available for $19.99 USD for a four-pack, and feature characters like Mickey, Minnie, Elsa, Woody, Buzz, Baby Yoda, and many more.
