Here’s a great way to celebrate the New Year!! Disney’s “Give a Day, Get a Disney Day” promotion begins today, January 1, 2010! Via this promotion, you can trade a day of volunteering at one of several nonprofit organizations for a Disney park ticket. (See more from the “Give a Day” Announcement Event here.)
Why Not Volunteer for a Food-Related Charity?
If food is your passion, consider volunteering for a charity focused on promoting healthy eating or eliminating hunger. There are plenty of organizations where you and your family can “give a day,” and the Hands On Network, which is managing the volunteering portion of Disney’s promo, has a great Hunger in America fact sheet you can use to show your kids why hunger still happens in America and why their hours of volunteering are so important.

If you’re interested in volunteering, head over to the Give a Day. Get a Disney Day.
