Celebrate the 5th annual Disney’s Magic of Storytelling campaign – a program that aims to inspire a lifelong love of reading in kids and bring books to under-served communities – by sharing a photo (details below) and then enjoy browsing some fantastic Pixar-themed storybook artwork (thanks to a Nerdist exclusive).
Over the years, Disney has donated more than 57 million books and has agreed to donate up to a million more through March 31, 2017, to First Book, a nonprofit that provides new books to educators and organizations serving children from low-income families. Although the program launched in January, it was the Nerdist article sharing artwork from the collection of Pixar-themed storybooks which caught our eye.
What can you do to help increase the number of donated books?
- Share a Shelfie: Disney will also give one book for every “shelfie” — a selfie photo with a favorite book — shared on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #MagicOfStorytelling. Be sure to also tag us (@ThePixarPost on Twitter & @PixarPost on Instagram) as well and we may retweet/repost your photo!
- One-for-One Book Donation: Buy a Disney book, Disney will donate one book to a child in need.
