The Disney Magic Makers contest was launched to recognize and reward those who are making magic in their communities. In honor of National Neighbor Day on September 28, Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products and the neighborhood network, Nextdoor, have teamed up to create an interactive digital map that showcases the inspirational acts of kindness, compassion, and generosity taking place in neighborhoods across the country.

In addition to spotlighting local heroes who have made a positive impact in their neighborhoods, the interactive map provides a deeper look into where and how magic is being made around the country. The data from Nextdoor includes a breakdown of who these magical neighbors are, where they come from, how they’re answering the call to help, and more!
