A handful of stars from the upcoming Avengers: Endgame film teamed up to celebrate a massive $5 million donation to help provide support to children around the globe with serious illnesses.

On Friday, cast members Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd and Brie Larson traveled to Disney California Adventure Park to attend Avengers Universe Unite, a charity event to unveil the massive donation.

“More than any time, it’s a time to give back to these courageous kids who inspire us,” Downey Jr., who plays Iron Man in the popular franchise, said at the event, according to the Associated Press.

As part of the sizable gift, Disney donated $1 million to the Starlight Children’s Foundation. The LEGO Group, Hasbro, Funko and Amazon also donated $4 million in Avengers: Endgame toys to hundreds of children’s hospitals across the globe, as well to the Florida nonprofit resort, Give Kids the World Village.

“From delivering hospital care packages to storytelling through Starlight Xperience virtual reality to our recent Disney-themed Starlight Gowns, millions of seriously ill children have benefited from our amazing relationship together. And with this donation, even more, kids will get to experience the magic of Disney,” Adam Garone, CEO, Starlight Children’s Foundation, said in a press release.
