Calgary Herald - - MOVIES -

Dis­ney is do­nat­ing US$5 mil­lion do­na­tion to var­i­ous non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tions sup­port­ing so­cial jus­tice ef­forts. Ex­ec­u­tives an­nounced the do­na­tion amid world­wide Black Lives Mat­ter protests af­ter the police killing of Ge­orge Floyd. The NAACP will re­ceive US$2 mil­lion and Dis­ney will match em­ployee do­na­tions to or­ga­ni­za­tions through the Dis­ney Em­ployee Match­ing Gifts pro­gram. “This $5-mil­lion pledge will con­tinue to sup­port the ef­forts of non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tions such as the NAACP that have worked tire­lessly to en­sure equal­ity and jus­tice,” it said.
