Disney Is Selling (and Donating!) New Cloth Face Masks, and Dibs on the Baby Yoda One
In light of the government mandate requiring customers to wear a cloth face covering on public transport, Disney is encourageing kids and families to stay safe by releasing a collection of very on-brand reusable face masks. The non-medical fabric masks feature various Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, and Marvel characters, including Anna and Elsa, Mike Wazowski, Buzz Lightyear, Winnie the Pooh, and yes, even The Child, aka "Baby Yoda."
As if the cute designs weren't enough of a reason to buy one, all profits from the face mask sales (up to £500,000) through 30 November will be donated to Red Cross organisations across Europe — including the British Red Cross — to help support their work amidst the pandemic. Plus, Disney is also donating 100,000 of its face masks to families in vulnerable communities across Europe through some of its charity partners, which in the UK includes MediCinema, a non-profit organisation that helps build cinemas in places of care that accommodate both wheelchairs and hospital beds.
Disney's character-themed face masks come in small, medium, large, and extra large sizes and are now available to pre-order in four-packs on shopDisney.co.uk. It's worth noting that they're expected to ship in August, and a few of the designs have limited quantities, so we suggest acting quickly if you're hoping to snag a specific set. Shop 'em all ahead.
