Disney Cast Member charitable organizations

For many years, Disney cast members have donated their time and resources for charity all around the world. In 1983, the Disneyland Community Action Team was started:

The Disneyland Community Action Team assisted with The Special Olympics, hospitals in Orance County, California, and other local organizations. In 1992, it became part of VoluntEARS, a corporate-wide group within the Disney Company.

Disneyland Paris also has their own volunteer organization, Club Bénévole was started in 1991.

Club Bénévole's mascot is the Fairy Merriweather from the film Sleeping Beauty. 'Bénévole' means "volunteer" in French. Made up of 350 cast members from more than 20 nations, Club Bénévole's primary mission is to help children in need throughout western Europe.
