Disney Has Partnered with Make-A-Wish for #ShareYourEars To Help Make Wishes Come True

Combined Shape

Mouseketeers get ready! There’s never been a better time to #ShareYourEars than November 4-17, 2018.

If you’re a Disney fan like me, you probably find any excuse you can to show off your Mickey or Minnie Mouse ears.

Whether your ears are on a hat, a headband, a Disney Parks product, or a homemade project, Disney and Make-A-Wish are inviting you to snap a photo for a good cause.

According to Make-A-Wish, Disney has promised to donate $5 per public #ShareYourEars photo to Make-A-Wish, up to $2 million “to grant even more life-changing wishes.”

It’s that simple! Snap a selfie or a photo with the family, sport your favorite ears of choice, and use the #ShareYourEars hashtag and $5 will be donated to the foundation that changes lives every day.

The Disney company has a long history with the Make-A-Wish foundation. “Since 1980, Disney has helped Make-A-Wish grant more than 130,000 wishes,” the foundation’s site reads.

That’s a whole lot of wishes! Disney knows all about dreams, too. “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes,” after all, and Disney has always been good at making wishes a reality.

This isn’t the first time Disney and Make-A-Wish have invited fans to share their ears. In December 2017, a similar campaign was run in conjunction with “The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration” on ABC.

Mickey Mouse is turning 90! Since 1928, the big mouse himself has brought smiles to millions of children and adults alike.

Now you can catch him looking as young as the day he was born in a special television event you won’t want to miss.

Tune into ABC tonight, Sunday, Nov. 4 at 8/7 Central to watch “Mickey’s 90th Spectacular” on ABC.

Performances from some of the biggest names in entertainment will grace the stage, including Frozen’s Kristen Bell, music superstar Meghan Trainor, and GRAMMY Award-winner Josh Groban.

Buzzfeed reports a special segment during the show will be dedicated to promoting the #ShareYourEars campaign.

“Granting wishes to children and their families is so important because it not only brings joy but hope as well,” Good Morning America co-anchor Robin Roberts told Buzzfeed. Roberts will make an appearance during the birthday spectacular.

The #shareyourears campaign with Disney and Make a Wish Foundation starts tomorrow and with that Disney will donate $5, up to a total of $2 million, to Make-A-Wish for every public photo posted showing off Mickey Mouse ears — or any creative “ears” — on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. • Also, starting Nov. 5, there will be special photo walls at the Disney Parks around the world on various days throughout the campaign to help you get the the perfect IG pic in your ears. • All you have to do to make some wishes come true is post a photo of yourself in Mickey ears to social media with the hashtag #ShareYourEars between Nov. 4 and Nov. 17. Thank you @loganandme for posting!

Disney Parks are also hopping in on the fun as Instagram-worthy photo walls will be placed all over the “Happiest Place(s) on Earth.”

What are you waiting for? Grab those ears and start sharing! You have the chance to make an impact alongside Disney and Make-A-Wish just by being exactly who you are — a true Disnerd!
