Pixar Animation Studios are bringing their own brand of magic to the magic of Starlight Children’s Foundation, delivering specialized hospital gowns to the littlest Pixar fans across the United States.

What’s Happening:

  • Disney and Pixar have teamed up with Starlight Children’s Foundation to bring the joy of Pixar films to kids in hospitals around the country.
