Disney Offers Free Theme Park Passes for Volunteering in 2010
Starting in 2010, the Give a Day, Get a Disney Day program will be giving out free tickets to Disneyland or Disney World for those in the United States and Puerto Rico who volunteer at participating action centers. Here is how you can participate.
First, go to the official website at Disney to sign up to be notified of volunteering opportunities in 2010. The volunteering opportunities would be distributed through action centers of the HandsOn Network. For some examples of the possible opportunities, type in your zipcode at the HandsOn Network. When you register at the Disney website you can also specify what type of volunteering opportunities you are interested in. You must preregister for the volunteering opportunities and Disney will send you an email after confirmation of your service. The email will also contain instructions on how to print out a voucher for a ticket to one of the Disney theme parks.
For more details about the program there is a FAQ available. Each household could have up to 8 volunteers and children have to be at least 6 years old to volunteer. This is a great weekend activity for those who are interested in giving back to their communities. Adult tickets to Disney theme parks cost anywhere from $60 to $90 currently so this program is a great way to earn those tickets in your free time. Disney is hoping to motivate 1 million people to volunteer, and hopefully some of these volunteers will find that giving back is fun and continue to volunteer in the future.
