Amid the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it is easy to forget the true meaning of the season! Today I got a big lesson about generosity, compassion and caring for others from our Walt Disney World Resort cast members who donated 35,000 toys for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program.

Mickey Mouse was there and so were the Marines; all coming together as one big community to make sure that many kids in need have at least one present to open during the holidays. Our Disney VoluntEARS are also giving 7,100 hours of their time to help the U.S. Marines with everything from registering families to sorting and packing toys.

Since Walt Disney and his animators designed the original Toys for Tots logo 60 years ago, Disney has supported this program that puts the season of sharing in the right perspective.
