So, have you heard of the new Share Your Ears campaign?
Well, we couldn’t believe our luck! My favorite group of fun-loving models and photographers has been planning a “Models in Mickey Ears” photo shoot for months, and we finalized it only weeks ago.
So imagine our delight and surprise when we discovered the Share Your Ears campaign! Basically, Disney has teamed up with the Make-a-Wish Foundation (one of my personal favorite charities) to create a fundraiser that involves their fans and patrons.
For every photo with the #ShareYourEars hashtag posted on social media, Disney will donate $5 to the Make-a-Wish Foundation — up to $1,000,000.
Disney and Make-a-Wish go way back, but I gotta say, the Share Your Ears idea is gold! And we loved that our Mickey Ears shoot happened to coincide. We got out our favorite ears — most of these are from my own personal collection (I think I have about 20 or so pairs of ears) — and we just had fun!
