With the state of the world right now and all of the consistent uncertainty that surrounds the growing pandemic fears, we are all searching for tiny beams of positivity in our days. Especially with loneliness due to social distancing, it can be the smallest thing nowadays that makes a huge difference in our moods.
Anything from nice weather, to a phone call from family, to an uplifting video on the internet can leave us smiling for hours. There is one special video that has been circulating the internet through social media that brings a little Disney magic into our newfound time in quarantine.
Frozen Parody Sweeps The Internet
Lawyer Charlotte Fisher and her husband created a coronavirus themed parody of the hit Disney musical Frozen — titled “Let me go!”
She dressed up as popular ice queen Elsa in her signature blue gown and even recruited her dog Henry to play Olaf — full costume and everything. The parody video talks about experiencing life in lockdown and the new challenges that we’re all having to learn to cope with during this scary time. Click HERE to watch the video on Youtube!
But the purpose of this video was not solely to entertain. While it is definitely bringing a bit of positive entertainment to viewers, Fisher said that the main goal with the parody was for fundraising!
She created the video with a goal to raise £800 to put towards aid for the National Health Service and its workers (NHS) — Britain’s publicly funded healthcare system. At this time, the couple has already surpassed that goal!
Charlotte Fisher wrote a note on her fundraising platform saying, “My husband Sam and I (with the help of Henry our dog) have put together this parody to raise money for NHS heroes caring for COVID-19 patients. If you’ve enjoyed watching, please give generously to show your support for the heroes fighting on the frontline and keeping us safe in our homes.”
It’s stories like these that leave us feeling hopeful and uplifted knowing that we’re all trying to come together and support each other through these tough times. Whether it be financially through donations, physically through making masks and donating time and food or emotionally through words of encouragement — let’s keep showing our frontline hero’s love and support during this time!
