The Coins For Change campaign helps the young players of Club Penguin make change in the real world by donating virtual coins earned by playing in the online game.

Disneyland has released it’s “2007 Connecting with Our Community” report. It details the over $12 million in cash, in-kind donations, and volunteer service that the Disneyland Resort team has contributed and examples of some of the tens of thousands of individuals they’ve helped. Anyway you look at it that’s no Mickey Mouse contribution. Congrats to everyone at Disneyland Resort for this wonderful showing of how much you care.
