Disney is launching its own line of character-based cloth masks – not only to protect you and your family, but also to make a charitable donation. The announcement was made on Thursday morning, with the promise to give up to $1 million in mask profits and 1 million masks to MedShare – a 501c(3) humanitarian aid organization dedicated to improving quality of life by providing medical supplies where it’s needed most.
Characters available include Disney’s viral green child, Baby Yoda, (naturally) as part of a Star Wars set of masks, along with Pixar, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Disney Princess, Marvel themes and even one set of masks featuring the mouths of your favorite Disney characters like Stitch and Winnie the Pooh. They’re available in small, medium and large sizes and are currently available for pre-order with an estimated June shipping date. In the interest of providing masks for families, orders are exclusively for 4-packs at $19.99 each. That said, it’s also worth noting that anyone who wants to purchase more than one size will also need to buy multiple packs as sets are differentiated by small, medium, or large as well as theme.
Disney adds that all masks are in compliance with the FDA’s recommendations for non-surgical masks. In recent weeks, the company has also cut its senior executives’ salaries from ludicrous to less ludicrous – but quickly saw pushback.
Below, find a statement from Senior VP Edward Park, as well as images of each set of masks.
“We realize this is a challenging time for families and wearing any type of mask can be daunting,” Edward Park, senior vice president, Disney store and shopDisney, said in a statement shared on Good Morning America. “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.”
