Dishney: Give a Day, Get a Disney Day

Hoping to generate the same enthusiasm this year's “What Will You Celebrate?” campaign has received, Disney announced this morning their “Give a Day, Get a Disney Day” program.

Disney is working with the HandOn Network, the nation's largest volunteer network, to bring you a simple, new proposal: Starting in 2010, volunteer your services for a day to a participating organization and receive free one-day admission to the Disney park of your choice.

“In 2010, we want to recognize and add one more reason for celebration:
the contributions people make to their communities every day,” said Jay
Rasulo, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.  “We want to inspire
1 million volunteers–people who will invest time and energy to make
their own communities and neighborhoods a better place.”

So how do you take part? Beginning Jan. 1, 2010, just visit to search and volunteer for family-friendly opportunities available. After you're through, you'll receive an e-mail from Disney that contains a link to a printable certificate. And that's it! 

After the jump: A couple of really adorable television commercial spots featuring the new volunteer program. Watch out for a cameo from a certain green frog.
