Small steps add up to big change when kids get involved

Disney's Friends for Change offers online help, encouragement

Disney's Planet Challenge is teaming up with Disney's Friends for Change as the in-school edition of a multi-platform initiative that inspires kids and their friends to make a positive impact on their world.

Information and useful toolkits are available at www.disney.com/projectgreen to encourage kids to help people, their community and the planet. While visiting the website, kids and their friends can:

  • Pledge to take specific, daily actions (for example: recycling, drinking from a reusable bottle, eating locally grown vegetables); learn why these actions matter; and see how their collective actions add up in a big way
  • Apply for grants to complete projects in their own community, through a partnership with Youth Service America

Friends for Change has more than 4 million actions taken by youngsters in 33 countries throughout the United States, Europe, Latin America, Japan, India and China. In addition, Disney has donated $4 million to more than 50 projects, ranging from educational and community programs to species and habitat protection.
