We're partnering with Make-A-Wish Minnesota on the Wishes in Flight drive this week, aiming to raise at least 2 million miles to cover travel costs for kids with critical illnesses whose only wish is to travel.
All week, we'll be featuring some amazing stories of Wish kids, past and present, that showcase the amazing power of travel. For these kids, getting on a plane is much more than just a trip. It's an escape, a chance to leave painful conditions and treatments behind for a dose of hope and joy.
But the most important story of all is your generosity. We can't raise 2 million miles without your help, whether you've got 1,000 miles leftover from a recent trip or 100,000 miles and just want to help make a child's wish come true.
Anyone who donates 50,000 or more airline miles will be entered into a random drawing for a $500 Delta gift card – on us! We will randomly select and announce the winner on Monday, March 2!
The deadline for donations is Sunday, March 1. You can donate Delta SkyMiles, United MileagePlus miles, American AAdvantage miles, Southwest Rapid Rewards points, or JetBlue TrueBlue points.
Once you donate, these miles will never expire. And every single mile you donate will go directly towards making a child's travel wish come true.

Our goal is to raise 2 million airline miles during the week of the drive, but Make-A-Wish Minnesota needs much more. Over 77% of wishes the organization receives involve travel, and those kids’ dreams would require about 75 million miles to fulfill each and every year.
