Disney to give away one million free park passes to community volunteers
In 2009, Disney gave free admission to everyone on their birthday.
In 2010, Disney intends to give one million volunteers free admission to a Disney theme park in exchange for a day of service in their communities. This program is called, "Give a Day. Get a Disney Day."
The program begins on January 1, 2010, but you can sign up now to receive an email reminder and updates on the program.
You will need to volunteer a day of service with a participating organization and your service will need to be verified. Then you will receive a one day (one park) admission to a Walt Disney World® or Disneyland® theme park, FREE!
The volunteer opportunities will be made available through HandsOn Network. HandsOn Network has 250 on-the-ground volunteer action centers across the country and connects volunteers to more than 70,000 nonprofit agencies. To get more information on how your non-profit organization can join HandsOn Network click here.

This is a great project that the entire family can do together. You must be 18 years of age to sign up and at least 6 years old to participate.
