Disney is selling non-medical cloth face masks in the US, featuring iconic characters, like Baby Yoda, Marvel heroes, but also Princesses and classic Mickey Mouse characters.
In light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the CDC has recommended that people wear cloth face coverings when out in public, to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. But no-one said you shouldn’t look awesome.
Disney has started selling non-medical cloth masks in the US, that feature some of your all-time favorite characters from across its universe(s) – from Pixar to Marvel, from Star Wars to classic characters. Think Frozen, Toy Story, The Avengers, R2-D2, and yes, Baby Yoda (The Mandalorian) as well.
“We realize this is a challenging time for families and wearing any type of mask can be daunting,” Edward Park, senior vice president of Disney store and shopDisney said in a statement. “Our hope is that Disney’s cloth face masks featuring some of our most beloved characters will provide comfort to the families, fans, and communities that are so important to us.”
The masks are sold in packs of four for $19.99 and come in various sizes, including children’s sizes. They are currently available for pre-order now in Disney’s online store, and the company expects the masks to be available by July 15th.
Disney has pledged to donate one million masks to those in need via humanitarian aid organization MedShare. On top of that, the company will also donate all profits from the mask sales in the US through September 30th, up to $1 million to MedShare.
“Disney’s donations will make a tremendous impact in the communities we serve,” Charles Redding, CEO, and president of MedShare said in a statement.
Disney said. Cloth masks are not intended for use by medical professionals treating COVID-19 patients.
