MMC'89 Social Impact Initiative
The 'All New' Mickey Mouse Club debuted in 1989 promoting diversity & inclusion, youth arts & education, concern for the environment, and the importance of socially conscious entrepreneurship.
The Sustainable Development Goals (Global Goals) are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. The 17 Goals are all interconnected, and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve them all by 2030.
MMC'89 supports educational programs, projects, events and outreach campaigns that work to end poverty, inequality and climate change.
We announced at #MMC30 - the 30th anniversary cast reunion held at Walt Disney World - hosted by NSYNC's Joey Fatone. The event raised $20,000 for onePULSE Foundation and Give Kids The World, with another $1 million committed to future efforts.
WHAT WE DO
Since 1989, the cast of The 'All New' Mickey Mouse Club has leveraged their global influence and multi-media platforms for socially conscious efforts that work to move humanity forward, and have helped raise hundreds of millions of dollars for nonprofits around the world.
MMC'89 is comprised of projects and events spearheaded by reunited cast members featuring global leaders in government, business and the arts who amplify important causes across a wide range of issues, with a particular focus on promoting diversity & inclusion while educating youth about the Global Goals. Projects are facilitated by the Advisory Council of our Arts, Hearts + Philanthropy initiative.

MOUSEKETEERS REUNITE ON MUSIC
FOR COVID-19 RELIEF
“More than a dozen former Mouseketeers reunited virtually to create a 17-track holiday album, Why? Because It's Christmas, that not only delivers sonic cheer, but financial support to those directly impacted by COVID-19. "Go Tell It On The Mountain" brings together all of the artists involved in a powerhouse number.”
