Disney 'Moment Maker' Interns Fundraise for MediCinema

This year for the first time, Disney UK Interns began a company-wide ‘Moment Makers’ internal fundraising initiative for MediCinema.

 

From the outset, these teams of Interns have thrown themselves into all manner of brainstorms, presentations and creative thinking to come up with a vast array of ways to raise money within the company.  Most of them had never met each other before, having been at home - and they still all had to do their day jobs!

 

Kat Mason, MediCinema’s CEO said: “The support we are receiving from this fundraising initiative is just wonderful.  The energy and enthusiasm that the Moment Maker teams are showing is so inspiring – especially as everyone is still having to do their regular jobs!  Thank you to every single intern taking part, we really do appreciate all the time and energy you are spending on this, alongside the support of the Disney staff.  It will help us to provide film experiences which improve the quality of life for many NHS hospital patients.”

 

Sixteen teams altogether have come up with a bunch of incredible ideas which they are now putting into practice.  These include:

 

The Bibbidi Bobbidi Booyahs: are running a campaign to encourage people to donate £12.60 - the price of a MediCinema ticket for an NHS hospital patient

 

Mickey’s Magical Minions: are running a series of various fun virtual sessions hosted by professionals. The aim is to lift everyone’s spirits by getting them learning something new (cooking), getting them active (Zumba, Pilates etc)

 

Darth Bakers hosted an exclusive raffle for a chance to win four tickets to see Disney’s award-winning musical The Lion King, live at London’s Lyceum Theatre, as well as four goody-bags! PLUS they set up a Bake-Along!

 

The Joysetters’ are holding an interactive raffle where a player has to pick a coordinate and guess where Mickey Mouse is hiding on a vintage Disneyland map.  The contestant who picks closest to Mickey will win a hot tub delivered to their door for a weekend of fun!

 

The Sensational Six – are running a Disney inspired Photo Quest with some fantastic prizes

 

Moments Inc have organised several charity events, their main activity is to have an intern host virtual Disney themed fitness sessions every Monday in May, with lots of fun soundtracks to work out to!

 

Funding Nemo are holding a charity talent show (with auditions!)

 

The Reel Deal will be sharing weekly arts and crafts challenges to include creating Disney characters – with great prizes for the most creative contributions!

 

Make a Change set up a raffle to win a set of beautiful prints

 

The Ladies and The Champs designed a brilliant 🌍The Virtual Race Around The World🌍 to test Disney knowledge and compete against friends to win fantastic prizes.

Thank you Moment Makers!
