Marne-la-Vallée (Sep. 25, 2020) – Today, Disneyland Paris launched the sale of its themed reusable cloth face masks with all profits from their sales until the end of December 2020 donated to the Grand Hôpital de l’Est Francilien, a network of local medical centers and a longstanding partner of Disneyland Paris.
The new reusable cloth face masks for the general public will use the power of timeless Disney stories and beloved characters to address guests’ needs. They also support Disneyland Paris’s commitment to charity organizations and healthcare institutions during these challenging times. Made in France and sold at the price of 6 euros each, these masks fulfill AFNOR requirements and government recommendations, and last up to 15 washes. They will be available in four styles and two sizes featuring iconic Disney characters—a fun way to encourage an essential barrier gesture.
Proceeds will benefit the GHEF, which includes facilities in Marne-la-Vallée, Meaux, Coulommiers, and Jourre. This donation is part of the company’s ongoing initiatives which launched during the temporary closure, including donations of food, protective equipment and other medical supplies to those in need. Hospitals and nursing homes in the Île-de-France region were able to benefit from donations of protective equipment, such as rain ponchos, distributed to healthcare professionals. To ease the daily life of children hospitalized during confinement, the Disney VoluntEARS also created small educational tutorials from their homes, which were transmitted to patients via partner hospitals. These videos were accompanied by supply kits for practicing the tutorials.
Since March, Disneyland Paris has donated almost 5 million euros worth of goods (retail value) to local hospitals and charity organizations.
