The Gary Sinise Foundation, founded by the "Forrest Gump" star, sent more than 600 Gold Star families to Disney World this month.
Sinise made the announcement on Twitter with a picture of parents and children on a plane headed for the amusement park.
"Over 1,000 Gold Star children travel with the surviving parent, 1,750 in all, via American Airlines to Disney World today as part of our (Gary Sinise Foundation) Snowball Express program. This charter left LAX this morning. I'll join up in a few days. Have fun kids! We love you!" he wrote.

With all of the bad news that is reported, it is nice to see something like this, especially around the holidays.
The Gary Sinise Foundation, created in 2011, posted photos of the children having fun at the "most magical place on Earth" with their families.
