Disney Donates $2 Million to Humanitarian Relief Efforts in Israel
The Walt Disney Company is donating $2 million to humanitarian relief efforts in Israel following the recent terror attacks. The company is donating $1 million to Magen David Adom, an organization that provides emergency medical and blood banking services in Israel. Another $1 million will be donated to nonprofit organizations in the region, particularly those focused on providing aid to children.
Disney employees have also been participating in Disney’s Matching Gifts program, which matches eligible charitable donations made by employees up to $25,000.
Disney CEO Bob Iger stated, “In the wake of the horrific terrorist attacks targeting Jews in Israel this past weekend, we must all do what we can to support the innocent people experiencing so much pain, violence, and uncertainty—particularly children. We condemn these attacks, the hate that motivated them, and all acts of terrorism, and we will continue working to find more ways to provide support in the region and to honor the victims, their families, and all those affected by this war.”
Paramount Global also recently donated $1 million to humanitarian relief efforts in Israel and is matching employee donations to support efforts to alleviate suffering in the region.
