It’s been a couple of days now since Dorian hit land on the beloved islands in the Bahamas. Normally a hurricane goes on land and it slows down in wind speed and is gone within a day. Dorian seemed to like the bahamas a bit too much. However it picked up on speed in winds and slowed down in pace.
This meant that Dorian had more time to literally wreck house on the party islands and made 70.000 people left in need of assistance. 48 hours long Dorian wrecked shop like a bull in a china shop, only to make people homeless and even kill people.
Walt Disney Company and hurricane dorian
Because the Bahamas is such a big part of the Disney Cruises, The Walt Disney company decided to help out. With a donation of goods worth more than 1 million dollars, Disney decided to go the extra mile for their neighbours.
Earlier today, Chairman and CEO Bob Iger shared;
“The Walt Disney Company stands with the people of The Bahamas affected by Hurricane Dorian.” He went on to say, “We hope our $1 million donation will provide much-needed relief and help our neighbors, colleagues, and all those impacted by this devastating storm begin the long process of recovery as they work to put their lives and communities back together.”
Disney also announced that they will be distributing their donations of goods and help for the people to their Coco Key island. From there it will be distributed to the surrounding islands that have been struck by the hurricane.
A 6 year old with the name Jermaine Bell wanted to help the refugees from Florida and South Carolina. He had spent over a year to be able to afford a trip to Walt Disney World. Something he had dreamed off for a very long time.
However when he heard that people were outrunning the storm to safety, he got his money and bought hot dogs, chips and water for the refugees. He decided to give everything to the refugees for free. Basically setting him back to square one with his savings.
When Disney got wind of the act of kindness of this selfish 6 year old they wanted to give him something special. Check the video below for the whole story.
