Who knew Mickey Mouse was such a philanthropist?

Well, lucky for you volunteers out there, the eternally jolly mouse is. And he wants to give back to you for, errr, giving back. Yesterday, Disney and the HandsOn Network announced a partnership which will give 1 million volunteers nationwide a free pass to Disney World in Orlando or Disney Land in Anaheim in exchange for a day of service.
So how does one score on this awesome opportunity, one might ask?
Would-be volunteers must register online with Disney and must be residents of the U.S., Canada or Puerto Rico to be eligible for the free admission. The work must be performed in 2010, and the park visit must take place by Dec. 15, 2010. Participants must be 18 or older to sign up for the program, but volunteer work done by children ages 6-17 qualifies for a free ticket as long as kids are accompanied by an adult when volunteering. Unused admission certificates can be donated to a charity designated by Disney.
