Disney has donated $1 million to charity to celebrate the success of ‘Black Panther’. As BBC News reports, the money will go to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America to fund programmes in maths, science, technology and engineering. It ties with one of the film's major themes of using technology to help advance society. In a statement to BBC News, Disney said the donation will “serve and inspire kids” across 12 different areas in America. Going into detail, Disney said the money will be spent to develop “3D printers, robotics, high-definition video production and conferencing equipment”.
It isn’t the first charitable move by Disney. In 2016, they announced a donation of $400 million to charitable causes, as noted on their website. ‘Black Panther’ is currently breaking box office records around the world. As Forbes reports, the blockbuster film has grossed over $700 million worldwide.
