Join Starlight and Disney in Celebrating Everyday Magic

Starlight Children’s Foundation is joining Disney to find people whose acts of goodwill have made a difference in their community!

The Disney Magic Makers contest is an all-new nationwide search to recognize and reward those who make magic by bringing comfort, support and joy to those around them.

From now until Oct. 1, 2021, you can nominate any U.S. resident, 13 years or older, who inspires you for the Disney Magic Makers contest by visiting and sharing the positive impact they have made. Fifty nominees whose inspirational acts of kindness, compassion, and creativity best exemplify the values of a Disney Magic Maker will win a trip to Walt Disney World® Resort to join “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” for the 50th anniversary and a one-year subscription to Disney+.

So, what makes a Magic Maker? Magic moments come in all shapes and sizes, from simple, sincere acts between neighbors to massive acts of charity, kindness and generosity. What binds these special moments together is the way they raise spirits, inspire communities, and connect people to one another.

As part of the celebration, Disney will donate a total of $400,000 among four non-profits, including Starlight, that demonstrated resilience during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Delivering Happiness During the COVID-19 Pandemic

In 2020, Starlight delivered happiness to more than 1.5 million kids who experienced hospital visits that were more isolating and anxiety-provoking than ever.

We heard from countless Starlight families and hospital partners how Starlight programs allowed kids to feel normal, even if for a few minutes, during a very abnormal year.

Our hospital partners relied on Starlight Virtual Reality and Starlight Gaming to provide much-needed entertainment for kids.

We heard how Starlight Gowns and Starlight Deliveries brightened patient’s spirits and brought smiles to them when they needed it most.

Do you know someone bringing magic to their community? Nominate them today. You could send them to Walt Disney World® Resort! We also encourage you to share your story on social using #DisneyMagicMakers and tagging @StarlightUS on Twitter or @StarlightChildrensFoundation on Facebook and Instagram!
