Like you, we were deeply shocked and saddened when we heard the news about the devastating terrorist attack in Manchester last Monday evening and our thoughts and condolences are with the family and friends of those who were killed or injured in the attack.
The bomb at the Manchester Arena tragically killed 22 people and injured dozens more, many of them children.
Manchester was the location of the Mouse Meets Disney fan conventions organised by our friends over on the Disney Brit Podcast, and we had a great time attending these conventions and exploring the city that hosted them.
Following the attack we received a few messages from fellow Disneyland Paris shareholders to say that they will be donating the proceeds from the sale of their Euro Disney S.C.A. shares to The Walt Disney Company under the Cash Tender Offer to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund.
The We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, launched by Manchester City Council and the British Red Cross, will support those who have been injured or bereaved by the attack at the Manchester Arena.
We have also decided to donate the proceeds we will be receiving from the sale of our shares to the Fund as well.
If you are thinking of donating the proceeds from the sale of your Euro Disney shares to the Fund, please contact us, and if there is enough interest we will contact Disneyland Paris and The Walt Disney Company to see if they too would be interested in supporting our fund raising efforts by matching our donations.
