Disney Introduces Cloth Face Masks - Available Now on shopDisney!
Disney has released new non-medical, reusable cloth face masks to help guests and fellow Disney fans follow the CDC’s recent recommendation to wear cloth face coverings in public settings. Disney is introducing cloth face masks featuring favorite Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars characters in the U.S., available for pre-order now on shopDisney.com!
Disney is helping others in need by donating one million cloth face masks for children and families in underserved and vulnerable communities across the U.S., including California and Florida, that will be distributed by MedShare. Disney will also donate all profits from the sales in the U.S. of Disney’s cloth face masks to Medshare, up to $1 million, 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.”
Based on the CDC's recent recommendations we're also speculating that Disney Parks will be implementing a policy that will require face coverings while at the parks & resorts as well. The cloth face masks align with the FDA’s latest recommendations on non-surgical, non-industrial grade face masks.
The cloth face masks are available for $19.99 for a four-pack, and feature your favorite characters, including: Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Anna and Elsa, Woody and Buzz, The Avengers, Baby Yoda and more! You can pre-order the cloth face masks – available in small, medium, and large sizes – now on shopDisney.com in the U.S., for estimated shipping in June. Care instructions, including washing and fitting guidelines, can be found on shopDisney.com.
