Entertainment company THE WALT DISNEY CO is to donate $5 million (£3. 84 million) to a survivor relief fund for organizations aiding victims and their families of America's terrorist attacks. Disney says the money is in addition to individual employee donations that are made.
Chairman MICHAEL EISNER says, "While we know our contribution won't make up for the profound loss felt by the victims and their families, we are pleased to be able to offer some assistance in this time of need. "
Local events in southern California and around the country, sponsored in part by Disney employees and various business units, have raised over $1 million (£769,230) so far to aid in the relief effort. (RP/WNWCYA)
