When you’re constantly on the road, dealing with security lines, flight delays, and less than homey hotel rooms, it’s easy to forget how beautiful the gift of travel truly is.
Because of travel you’re able to connect with people and cultures all across the world. Through travel your understanding of our planet and the people on it deepens and your perspective widens. Travel can teach you more than any classroom can, and although technology is rapidly advancing, you can’t find this kind of enlightenment on the Internet.
The gift of travel is one everyone should receive, and no one feels more passionate about that fact than we do here at TripIt. For that reason, we’re honored to be partnering with Make-A-Wish for the second year in a row to give this gift to some severely ill children.
This holiday season we’ve asked you to donate you’re unused or expiring air miles to our Make-A-Wish miles drive. Because of you, we’ve already raised 75 percent of our goal of one million miles.
One exceptionally generous and humble donor from Charlotte, N.C. had this to say: “For all of the business travelers like me that use TripIt, [this] partnership is a great reminder that travel is not just a job, it’s a gift that means a great deal for many people.”
We’d like to thank all of you who’ve donated. We’re deeply moved by your generosity. But we can’t stop here!
Please help us spread the word by sharing this post via social media, email, or just calling up your well-traveled friend. Let’s reach our goal of one million miles and help send over 20 Make-A-Wish kids and their families on their dream trip. You can visit tripit.com/gift to make your donation.
Thanks everyone. Don’t forget to slow down and admire the beauty of travel! Happy holidays and happier travels.
