Disney’s sales and travel operations team joined other Walt Disney World Resort cast members in providing support for the “Hope for Haiti Now: A Global Benefit for Earthquake Relief” telethon that aired on Jan. 22. More than 400 cast members volunteered to answer more than 16,000 calls for the telethon and route donations to participating disaster relief organizations.
Disney cast members answered phones for the Haiti telethon.
Randy Garfield, president of the Walt Disney Travel Company and executive vice president of Sales and Travel Operations (SATO) for Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, led the team of SATO cast members who participated in the effort, which took place at Disney Reservations Centers in Orlando and Tampa, Fla.
“I am continuously amazed by the dedication of our talented cast members as they make dreams come true for countless guests every day,” said Garfield. “I could not have been more proud to see the SATO team and hundreds of other Walt Disney World cast members come together to support Hope for Haiti and once again demonstrate the true passion and heart behind the magic.”
