    Disney gives 2 Million Dollars to SoCal wildfire relief!

    The Walt Disney Company on Wednesday afternoon just donated 2 Million dollars to help wildfire vicitms in Southern California. That's a huge donation right off the bat. Band of America donated 1 Million, as a comparison to other large California based companies.

    Rumors were going around the park today that TDA was trying to quickly pull together a group of CM's, goodwill ambassadors, Characters, Nemomobile, etc. to drive down tomorrow to Qualcomm Stadium and other San Diego emergency centers to help keep the kids entertained in the shelters. Hope that can work out, as it would be great to see fellow Disneylanders head out and spread the magic beyond the parks. But the 2 Million bucks from Burbank is awesome too!

    Way to go Disney! I'm sure this will help in many ways. Although 2 million may seem like allot, its really not compared to all the damage. I'm sure that it can only equal to about 4 homes destroyed in the fire. Very sad. Prayers go out to the families, my parents home in San Bernardino luckily was spared, but the flames came within 30 feet. Very scary.

    I would also like to take this moment to offer my prayers and thoughts to the families who lost their homes, and property.

    The value of the house is not the cost of building one. This will probably build 10 houses.

    Either way it was a fantastic gesture.

    Oh, I was just trying to mention how much the houses go for in that part of the state.

    This won't be used to build new houses in upper-middle class neighborhoods. From the news reports...

    "Starting Thursday, Disney said it would provide $200,000 in donations to the American Red Cross for immediate relief efforts.
    The rest of the money would be distributed later on a case-by-case basis to groups for rebuilding and restoration efforts, which might include replanting trees or replacing burned parks and community centers."

    Disney is a class act.

    What a great gesture on Disneys part. I hope other large companies with disposable income come out too. Hopefully this is not just for media clout.
    Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

    I, too, hope this isn't just a move for good publicity. But regardless of the intentions, it will help. So thank you to whoever made this happen. Prayers and best wishes to all those affected by the fires.
