Disney do­nated $1 mil­lion to the Starlight Chil­dren’s Foun­da­tion, which brings en­ter­tain­ment and ed­u­ca­tion to chil­dren fac­ing life-threat­en­ing con­di­tions in sev­eral coun­tries, in­clud­ing the United States and Great Bri­tain. The LEGO group, Has­bro, Funko and Ama­zon col­lab­o­rated to do­nate more than $4 mil­lion to chil­dren’s hospi­tals around the coun­try.

Rudd, who stars as Ant-Man, said he is grate­ful to be a part of the ini­tia­tive. The ac­tor said he has worked closely to help raise money for the Chil­dren’s Mercy Hos­pi­tal in Kansas City, Mis­souri. “I’m grate­ful and touched to be a part of this group,” Rudd said. “I work with a lot of kids and fam­i­lies. It’s not just the kids. It’s the en­tire fam­ily. The par­ents, the broth­ers, the sis­ters.

This is a real honor to give back. I would like to say the Ant-Man toy is par­tic­u­larly small. So when you’re walk­ing around bare­foot, just be care­ful. It’s a lit­tle bit like step­ping on a LEGO.”
