GoFundMe Launched to Help Disney Cultural Representatives Still Stranded in Orlando Due to COVID-19 Pandemic

When Disney announced that the Cultural Representative Program was suspended indefinitely, many Cast Members were left in Orlando with nowhere else to go during these unprecedented times caused by the pandemic.

Agape Source, a nonprofit organization that provides care and resources to international students, has been feeding up to 60 displaced cast members for the last 14 weeks. While partners provided donations in the form of bread, eggs, and international foods, they have still struggled to keep up with the need, even as some have finally gotten flights back to their home countries. Now, they are reaching out to the public for help. 

The organization launched a GoFundMe just hours ago in order to help them get through the finish line and keep the remaining 40 international cast members fed until they’re able to secure flights home. The goal has been set at $20,000.

It is absolutely despicable that Disney has left these international cast members stranded in our country with no basic needs being met. Shame on Disney in the Walt Disney World resort.
