Last week, I had the pleasure of telling you about the “PaintFest at Sea,” a Disney VoluntEARS program held in coordination with the non-profit, Foundation for Hospital Art. The event brought crew members and guests together on the Disney Magic’s transatlantic sailing to paint a 72-panel mural featuring characters from “The Little Mermaid,” in celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the Disney VoluntEARS program.

Today, I am thrilled to show you the magic we shared over the weekend when Disney VoluntEARS, along with beloved Disney characters, assisted in delivering and hanging the mural at the Hospital General de Catalunya. The mural delivery and hospital visit showcases just one way Disney Cruise Line is committed to giving back to communities in ports of call around the world.

Scott Feight, executive director of the Foundation for Hospital Art, told us this was one of the largest murals they have ever created. “Seeing the reaction of the children here today showcases the true power of our mission of utilizing art to uplift the spirit and support healing in hospitals around the world,” he said.

Disney VoluntEARS also visited with the children in the hospital, which is one of many community outreach projects taking place to deliver toys and smiles to deserving children in the port communities along Disney’s Mediterranean itineraries this summer.

This mural reminds me of the Lilo and Stitch-themed mural that the Disney VoluntEARS and I created for the Boys and Girls Club in Daly City a number of years ago when I was Chairman of the Disney VoluntEARs in San Francisco! Great job on this mural!
