Disney XD is introducing a new web series called “Citizen Kid”. I think the idea is a great one – we can all do more to help our community and world around us. One thing I’m excited to see is how it inspires kids to get out and become more involved. Here’s the official information from Disney XD:
At Disney we know that every child has a chance to make a difference in the world. Today, Disney Interactive launched Citizen Kid, an original web series that celebrates the potential in all kids, and the extraordinary things they accomplish when they embrace their interests and talents. Walt Disney once said, ³Our greatest natural resource is the minds of our children,² and this new series demonstrates the amazing things kids are capable of when parents, guardians and loved ones give young minds the freedom and encouragement to live their dreams.
Citizen Kid is about inspiring kids to reach their fullest potential, and the series¹ exclusive sponsor, Milk, is devoted to powering that potential, one glass of milk at a time. With 8 grams of high-quality protein and 9 essential nutrients in every 8 oz. serving, a glass of milk can help families milk the most out of life by fueling active and successful days.
During the 18-episode series, viewers will watch children take ordinary activities, like setting up a lemonade stand or playing chess, to better the world around them. The first three episodes of Citizen Kid are live now, including:
- Episode 1: HAILEY a 9-year-old ice skater and Olympic hopeful, gathers gently used skates and hockey equipment to help host skating lessons for underprivileged kids
- Episode 2: SAM a 12-year-old who took an interest in garbage collection, raises money for charity by recycling ink cartridges, cell phones and other tech trash from local businesses
- Episode 3: COURTNEY a 15-year-old with a passion for animals, became a certified vet assistant in order to volunteer at her local veterinary hospital
