By Tess Farrand, Associate Content Editor
Disney debuted cloth face masks with popular characters to “provide comfort” to families during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our hope is that Disney’s cloth face masks featuring some of our most beloved characters will provide comfort to the families, fans and communities that are so important to us” said Edward Park, senior vice president of shopDisney and the Disney store.
The decorative masks come in small, medium and large, and feature characters from Marvel, Disney/Pixar and STAR WARS. Fan favorites such as Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse and Marie Kitty from THE ARISTOCATS also grace the masks.
A pack of four costs $19.99.
The masks won’t be available for purchase until mid-July, but customers can pre-order during this time.
In addition to selling the masks to the public, Disney will exercise some philanthropic efforts to bless others.
According to an Instagram post by ShopDisney:
Disney is donating one million cloth face coverings for children and families in underserved and vulnerable communities across the U.S. that will be distributed by MedShare (www.medshare.org). Disney will also donate all profits from the sales in the U.S. of Disney’s cloth face coverings to Medshare, up to $1 million, now through September 30, 2020.
