Disney’s Friends For Change movement has launched a new video spot about the Gulf oil spill. Friends for Change is also donating $100,000 to support clean-up efforts.
Beth Stevens, the senior vice president of environmental affairs for the Walt Disney Company, said about the new television spot, which encourages Disney fans to protect the planet:
It’s important for us to speak to kids about this unprecedented environmental disaster, to acknowledge their emotions about the news we’re all seeing on a daily basis and encourage them to channel their feelings into positive action. Kids want to help and, even though the clean-up in the Gulf is a job for trained professionals, all local waterways lead to the ocean so we’re recruiting kids to help keep them clean.
Watch the new spot below, with Disney stars Joe Jonas, Brenda Song, Debby Ryan and Moises Arias, and let us know what you think.
