I received the following information as a blogger via Disney Channel Media Relations. All opinions and views expressed are 100% my own.
If you are a regular reader, you have probably picked up on the fact that we are huge fans of Disney! This is why I’m excited today to announce that the Disney | ABC Television Group is launching amazing resources to champion the potential of young, socially conscious individuals, and help them cultivate their creative ideas to strengthening their communities in hopes to change the world.
The “Summer of Creativity” initiative presents Disney | ABC Television Group’s commitment to feature programming content and public service announcements highlighting how creativity and action can inspire a better future.
According to the most recent press release, the Group will also fund over 100 Youth Service America grants to support individual youth-led projects that help make communities greener, safer, smarter, healthier or cleaner. Even better… Winners will receive $500 “Summer of Creativity” grants! How awesome is that???
To learn more about this new initiative, and to access the grant application (deadline is August 10, 2015!!), visit www.YSA.org/BeInspired.
During the week of July 13, GOOD MORNING AMERICA will showcase several non-profit organizations that work towards building stronger communities. Plus superstar Selena Gomez will host a special one-hour broadcast, originating from Free the Children’s “We Day” 2015 event in Chicago. The broadcast will feature incredible young talent that personify “Summer of Creativity.” The special will be air Friday, August 21 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) on ABC.

Don’t forget! The deadline for the grant application (found at www.YSA.org/BeInspired) is August 10, 2015!!
