Don’t make a hash of your hashtag!

We do love a good hashtag here at NY Design. As such, we thought now would be a good time to share some great examples from the past 12 months from businesses who really are using the social # formula well.

It may be a small world, but Disney wants you to #ShareYourEars

To celebrate Disneyland Resort’s 60th Anniversary they rolled out the hashtag #ShareYourEars. Fans were able to share photos and unlock a $5 donation from Walt Disney Parks and Resorts towards the Make-A-Wish Foundation. With an original goal of $1 million, (£773,400) this hashtag reached great success and Disney was able to double their goal, donating a total of $2 million (£1,546,800) to the organisation!
