After the CDC recommendation to wear cloth face coverings in public, Disney has released a new line of reusable cloth face masks featuring several favorite characters we know and love.
Disney is using the power of beloved characters and stories to help families to follow new guidelines as the country begins to reopen. Disney is introducing reusable, cloth, non-medical face masks available for pre-order on shopDisney.com.
The masks sell for $19.99 for a 4-pack, and come in three sizes: small, medium, and large. You must order all four masks in the same size, so mixing and matching is not possible.
The masks will feature characters from Disney, Star Wars, Marvel, and Pixar. My family is already squealing over Baby Yoda!
Senior Vice President of shop Disney and Disney Store, Edward Park said “we realize this is a challenging time for families and wearing any type of mask can be daunting. Our hope is that Disney’s cloth face masks featuring some of our most beloved characters will provide comfort to the families, fans and communities that are so important to us.”
The cloth face masks align with the FDA’s latest recommendations on non-surgical, non-industrial grade face masks.
In addition, Disney is continuing to give back to those in need! They will be donating one million cloth face masks for children and families in vulnerable communities across the United States.
The masks will be distributed by MedShare.
If that wasn’t enough, Disney will also donate all profits (up to one $1 million) from the sales in the United States of Disney’s cloth face masks to MedShare, now through September 30, 2020.
“Disney’s donations will make a tremendous impact in the communities we serve,” says Charles Redding, CEO and president of MedShare. “Their contribution of one million Disney cloth face masks will be provided to families in underserved communities and organizations working to limit the spread of COVID-19, while their monetary donation will be used to support the medical community’s ongoing efforts to provide lifesaving care to those who need it most.”
