George, I know you've got a lot going on. We have a lot going on here. Love what's going on here all morning long with the boys & girls clubs, our own Disney volunteers pitching in to pack these back-to-school backpacks for kids that need help. We're celebrating young people who give back by volunteering and serving. The winners get a thousand dollars from Disney to help with their service projects. We have one in times square. We'll fill 2,000 backpacks to support the great futures campaign of the boys & girls club and while everyone keeps on working, take a look at this. ? Reporter: In their 150 years, the boys & girls clubs of America have turned out some of our biggest stars. It's the reason I'm here. Instrumental in creating great citizens. It started my kind of creative side. Reporter: An inspiration to girls like 19-year-old Kiana. You have to know you can accomplish anything and that nothing is impossible. Reporter: Boys & girls clubs of America, she came as the 5-year-old daughter of a single mom who couldn't always make enough time to spend with her little girl. The club became her cheering section and her family. They always encouraged EE to have a positive outlook on life and everything that I wanted to do, they just pushed me and at they told me I could do it and reach for the sky and nothing was too big, no dream was too big and that's what I really appreciate. Reporter: And this summer so many young people are dreaming big answering the call to volunteer to help other kids. To help change their worlds. With the helping hand from the Walt Disney company and the boys & girls clubs of America, to launch a new initiative called great futures. A future inspired by service to others. Love that story, love her. She is here with us this morning. So great to see her. Been such a great ambassador for the program all year long and joined by the cfo of the Disney company and a member of the boys & girls club, Jim Clark.
