Walt Disney Company to Donate More Than $1 Million to The Bahamas

The Walt Disney Company to Donate More Than $1 Million to Relief and Recovery Efforts in The Bahamas.

from Disney..
"We all have watched with broken hearts as Hurricane Dorian brought devastation to the northern Bahamas. Having just traveled to Great Abaco for a community event one week before the storm hit, I can tell you firsthand that the people of Grand Bahama and Abaco are our friends, neighbors and co-workers.

We're committed to helping them rebuild their homes, their communities and their livelihoods. And today, I'm proud to share with you that the Walt Disney Company, led by Disney Cruise Line, made a commitment of more than $1 million to help relief and recovery efforts in The Bahamas.

This commitment includes a $1 million donation to non-profit relief agencies who will be undertaking recovery and rebuilding efforts, as well as the provision of supplies including food staples and basic construction materials to those in impacted areas.

Earlier today, Chairman and CEO Bob Iger shared, "The Walt Disney Company stands with the people of The Bahamas affected by Hurricane Dorian." He went on to say, "We hope our $1 million donation will provide much-needed relief and help our neighbours, colleagues, and all those impacted by this devastating storm begin the long process of recovery as they work to put their lives and communities back together."

Additionally, Disney employees with immediate needs in impacted areas of The Bahamas will have access to a range of resources. Disney Castaway Cay, Disneys private island in The Bahamas, which experienced tropical force strength winds, employs more than 60 Bahamians from Abaco and Grand Bahama, as well as several employees from other Bahamian islands.

"The Bahamas is such a special place to us and our guests, and we have watched the devastation created by Hurricane Dorian with concern and heartache," Jeff Vahle, president of Disney Cruise Line, said. "We stand with the Bahamian people, and especially those in Abaco and Grand Bahama, as they recover from the worst storm to ever make landfall in The Bahamas. As the needs in these communities are assessed, we are prepared to aid the relief and recovery efforts through funding, the provision of supplies and by providing support to our Bahamian Crew Members."

We continue to monitor Hurricane Dorian and will coordinate on an ongoing basis with nonprofit organizations on emergency response efforts. This includes sharing lifesaving information with families before and during emergencies, prepositioning supplies at-the-ready to respond rapidly to natural disasters, and providing resources to activate large-scale responses as needed in the event of a disaster."

I am always the first to criticise Disney for penny pinching. However this is a nice gesture and the Islands need every penny they can get. Well done Disney.
