Los Angeles, CA, USA – December 8, 2021 – On September 10, 2021, social impact-based company Be Great! teamed up with the MMC’89 Initiative to produce 2021’s Be Great! Humanitarian Awards at Walt Disney World® Resort. The event was hosted at Disney’s Contemporary Resort and the awards were presented by a reunited cast of The ‘All New’ Mickey Mouse Club. The annual ceremony is designed to recognize, honor and celebrate individuals for their extraordinary philanthropic efforts.

2021 Honorees included Jeff Hoffman (Chairman of Global Entrepreneurship Network who has volunteered over 20 years in youth mentorship internationally), Pamela Landwirth (for serving critically ill children and their families for over 30 years with Give Kids The World Village), Dr. Florence Alexander (for over 30 years of philanthropy through education and healthcare), Sir Gary Kong (for donating 40,000 pieces of personal protective equipment at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic), Kellen Jackley (10-year-old former Wish Kid and Child Ambassador for Give Kids The World), Adrian Boysel (for over 10 years of mentorship with inner-city youth), Billie Mitchell (for over 20 years of volunteer work as a social impact celebrity publicist), Dale Godboldo (actor/entrepreneur for helping raise over $50 million for charities), James Dentley (for over 20 years of youth mentorship), and Richard Mahee (for over 20 years of youth education).

Be Great! and MMC’89 also produced The Clubhouse Lounge Experience in partnership with World Summit and Arts, Hearts + Philanthropy. The Lounge featured a replica of the Mickey Mouse Club diner set that staged impactful interviews, panels and an international live stream. Discussions included Disney icons, philanthropists and socially conscious business leaders including Lee Cockerell (Former EVP, Walt Disney World), Dan Cockerell (Former VP, Magic Kingdom), Axel Tillmann (CEO, World Summit), Jodi Benson (Voice of Ariel, Little Mermaid), Jade Zaroff (Founder, Entertainment For Change), Kelly Lovell (CEO, Bridging The Gap), and AY – a Global Young Leader for the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, among others.

At Walt Disney World® Resort’ helped raise funds and awareness for Give Kids The World – an 89-acre nonprofit resort in Central Florida that provides cost-free, transformative vacations to critically ill children and their families, and for Cast Member Pantry – a non-profit organization serving Disney employees who have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
