Yesterday Disneyland Resort revealed that the Californian theme park would be donating a $5 million gift to the Children’s Hospital of Orange County. The donation will contribute to the hospital’s fundraising for a necessary $560 million expansion. In addition Disney’s financial donation, Disney employees will design an interactive lobby.

The Disney interactive lobby will feature much loved Disney characters, bringing that special Disney magic to the hospital. "This is just perfectly aligned," said George Kalogridis, president of Disneyland Resort and a member of the CHOC board. "We love, of course, to entertain children. The majority of our philanthropic efforts are centered on children."
 
Last year Disney worked with Florida Hospital for Children, located in Orlando, to create a lobby. Ties were formed between Disney and the Children’s Hospital of Orange County in 1964 by Walt Disney himself.Walt was a founding member on the board and facilitated fundraising for the hospital. In fact, it was a Disney illustrator who designed the hospital logo, a bear titled CHOCO.
 
There really is no end to Disney’s efforts to make the world a happier place.
