Date:8/17/2009

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --- The Walt Disney Company has donated $100,000 to the American Red Cross of Greater Los Angeles in support of the organization's Catastrophic Disaster Plan, a disaster preparedness project to feed and shelter 250,000 people following a major disaster, such as a large scale earthquake.

The Walt Disney Company's donation aided the Red Cross in qualifying for a $1 million challenge grant. To date, the total committed donations to the Plan are nearly $5 million dollars.

The Walt Disney Company has been a longtime supporter of the American Red Cross and local disaster efforts. During the last six years, Disney has donated more than $3.6 million for Southern California and national disaster relief efforts, including the 2008 California wildfires, Hurricane Katrina, and the 2004 tsunami in Southeast Asia. In addition, Disney donated 150,000 Mickey Mouse plush toys for the Red Cross to give to children affected by disasters.

"The American Red Cross provides life-saving support around the world, and we hope Disney's capstone contribution will aid in its already impressive disaster preparedness program here in Southern California," said Robert A. Iger, president and CEO, The Walt Disney Company.

Paul Schulz, CEO, American Red Cross of Greater Los Angeles, thanked The Walt Disney Company for its generous donation: "Disney is a worldwide leader in employee preparedness and visitor safety, and we are honored to partner with them in helping our communities prepare for a major disaster."
