Bloggers raise more than $50,000 to help Disney employees in need

Sarah and Tom Bricker don’t care if you’re a fan of their blog or just “hate” it. Either way, they just want to raise funds to help the thousands in central Florida who have been devastated by the pandemic and loss of tourism.

“Whether you live here in central Florida or not, this is your community as a Walt Disney World fan. The painful reality is that many people who only six months ago helped make all of our vacations magical are now helping themselves need, “they wrote on the Disney Tourist Blog.

The couple started the blog in 2011 to share photos, tips, and opinions on everything Disney has to offer – without the fluff. “You will rarely find meaningless fluff words like ‘magic’ here, and this blog is certainly not ‘sprinkled with fairy dust,'” the website says.

But the Brickers take care of their community and the travel industry and begin their campaign with a personal donation of $ 500. After indefinite vacations for executive, paid, and non-union theme park employees in April, Disney is laying off 28,000 employees as resorts and theme parks reopen. The layoffs follow others in Orange and Osceola counties, where the unemployment rate is now above 11 percent, including SeaWorld and Universal Orlando.

“They raised the first $ 25,000 in 24 hours and raised over $ 37,000 by this morning,” said Erika Spence, spokeswoman for Central Florida Second Harvest Food Bank said CNN On Sunday. “Every dollar raised can provide four meals to families in need.”

After exceeding their initial target and then a second target of $ 30,000, the Brickers had raised more than $ 50,000 by Tuesday afternoon. The money goes to the same food bank Disney had donated excess food until the first time the park was closed for coronavirus in March. The couple told CNN that they did not want to exclude others in need and did not ask Second Harvest to allocate these funds specifically to theme park staff in the area.

“Our hearts go out to all of the performers and their families affected by these layoffs and vacations. We cannot fathom the devastation, fear, anxiety and range of other emotions that go with losing your dream position. You have that many cast members made.” So much magic for all of us over the years and this should help pay back a little of that, “the Brickers wrote on their blog.
