Do you have more miles than you can use or points that are about to expire? If you fly with United Airlines, Delta or US Airways, you’re in luck because you can put your miles to use toward a great cause.
This month, Make-A-Wish is celebrating 30 years of making wishes come true for children with life-threatening medical conditions. Over 70% of the wishes requested involve wanting to travel far and away to magical lands. Living up to its name, Make-A-Wish indeed makes these dreams a reality by partnering with airlines to turn donated miles into airline tickets.
Here in San Francisco, our local chapter is partnering with television station KRON4 to hold a one-day telethon, “Million Mile Monday” on April 29 from 6am to 7pm to help raise five million miles.
You, too, can be a part of the wish granting by donating your miles to send over 10,000 kids on their travels this year! You don’t have to wait until April 29, you can be someone’s genie and donate your miles (or dollars) here.
As an added incentive, World Wrestling superstar John Cena will personally match every frequent flier mile donated up to 4.5 million, and United Airlines will match the donations of its MileagePlus members, up to 3 million miles, through April 30.
Thanks for your help in making the wishes of many deserving children come true!
