The Walt Disney Company is donating $1 million to the OneOrlando Fund, a fundraiser established for the victims of the horrific mass-shooting at an Orlando LGBTQ dance club, where 50 were killed and 53 were left injured.
According to Deadline, Disney will also match — dollar for dollar — any donations made by Disney employees through Disney Employee Matching Gifts.
Walt Disney Parks & Resorts exec Bob Chapek said in a statement, “We are heartbroken by this tragedy and hope our commitment will help those in the community affected by this senseless act…With 74,000 Cast Members who call Orlando home, we mourn the loss of the victims and offer our condolences to their families, friends and loved ones.”
Additionally, Walt Disney World Resort is providing accommodations to families and friends of victims, in an effort co-ordinated with the City of Orlando and the Central Florida Hotel & Lodging Association. The site is also accepting blood donations from employee donors.
You can donate to the OneOrlando Fund at the official website.
