Since the terrible fire at Notre-Dame two days, over $1.1 Billion Dollars has been pledged towards the 5-year massive rebuilding effort.
Today, Walt Disney Company released this statement and their rebuilding pledge:
The Walt Disney Company today announced it is committing $5 million to aid in the reconstruction of Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris following the devastating fire that severely damaged the historic landmark this week.
“Notre-Dame is a beacon of hope and beauty that has defined the heart of Paris and the soul of France for centuries, inspiring awe and reverence for its art and architecture and for its enduring place in human history. The Walt Disney Company stands with our friends and neighbors in the community, offering our heartfelt support as well as a $5 million donation for the restoration of this irreplaceable masterpiece,” said Robert A. Iger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, The Walt Disney Company.
Walt Disney so loved the iconic spire at Notre-Dame Cathedral that he added it to Sleeping Beauty Castle.
Disney released their animated version of The Hunchback of Notre Dame in June 1996.
We’ve written two books about our time working and playing at Disney World.
Both are available on Amazon.com: Two Girls and a Mouse Tale and Adventures in the Animal Kingdom.
