Now that the holidays are upon us, the spirit of giving is flying high in the air. Here at TripIt, we’re inspired to give back, and would love your help to bestow the gift of travel to deserving children through the Make-A-Wish organization.
How You Can Give Back
Travelers everywhere can get in the spirit by donating frequent flier miles to Make-A-Wish. Mileage donations help Make-A-Wish send even more children and their families on the trips of their dreams. It’s easy to contribute Delta, United, US Airways or jetBlue miles; just visit tripit.com/gift.
How TripIt Is Giving Back
Did you know more than 70 percent of wishes granted by Make-A-Wish involve travel? That’s why we’re particularly passionate about partnering with Make-A-Wish this year to adopt the wish of 10-year-old Grady, who’s battled acute myeloid leukemia and aplastic anemia for the past several years.
TripIt will help send Grady and his family on an eagerly anticipated trip to Disney World in April 2014. Grady says he can’t wait to “meet the Disney characters and ride the rides”!
Help Us Spread the Word
Our goal is to reach as many travelers as possible this holiday season, to make travel wishes come true for even more deserving children. In addition to miles donations, please share this pagehttp://tripit.com/gift — with your friends, family, colleagues and fellow travelers on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and more. Throughout the coming weeks, we’ll post updates and reminders on our social channels as well, so join us here:
