On the Bright Side
  
Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida has doubled its daily distribution during pandemic relief efforts.
(CNN) As news of mass layoffs were happening at their favorite theme park, Disney bloggers from Florida tapped into their online audience to raise over $40,000 for their local food bank. Sarah and Tom Bricker have been offering advice since 2011 about all things Disney on their blog, DisneyTouristBlog.com, according to the website.
When the Central Florida couple heard that Disney would be laying off thousands of employees, they created a virtual fundraising drive for Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, which has been helping to feed "miles long lines" of Floridians affected by the pandemic, the couple said on their blog.
"Whether you live in Central Florida or not, we're all part of the same community as Walt Disney World fans," the Brickers said on their blog after donating $500 to the cause themselves. "Please join us in helping to give back to those who have made so much magic for us all over the years."
