Disney Hand

The primary focus of DisneyHand is to serve the most needy families and children in our community in the areas of learning, compassion, the arts and the environment. The majority of our giving is concentrated in and around the cities where the majority of our cast members live and work.

Clay and Disney Hand first came together when Clay performed and was a presenter during the Disney Teacher Awards. Buena Vista then went onto sponsor Clay's first solo tour in the summer of 2004. A short video was shown at Clay's concerts which included information about projects in which DisneyHand was involved.
