Since launching our Wishes in Flight Drive with Make-A-Wish Minnesota earlier this week, readers near and far have combined to donate 1.3 million airline miles and counting!
We can’t thank you enough for your generosity. These miles will go directly towards covering travel costs for kids like Tabitha, who wants to fly to Tokyo to see the cherry blossoms before she loses her vision. It helped us break the news to Daisy that her wish to go to Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas is coming true.
But we set a goal of raising 2 million miles by this Sunday, March 1. And we’re determined to hit it. Whether you’ve got a boatload of airline miles or just a thousand or so, you can help us reach that goal to help make more wishes come true.
Read more on our mileage drive with Make-A-Wish Minnesota and see how you can help!
For these kids, a trip that they can take using the miles you donate is more than just a trip. It’s something to look forward to, a reason to power through painful treatments and hospital visits. It’s a chance for these kids and their families to be together – and for parents to see a smile on their child’s face. It’s a dose of hope and joy for children going through something that no child should have to.
Make-A-Wish Minnesota can accept mileage donations from Delta, United, American, Southwest, and JetBlue. Maybe you’ve got a few thousand miles sitting unused in your Delta, United, or Southwest account. Put them to the best use possible! Or perhaps your stash of American miles may soon expire? Send whatever you can to Make-A-Wish Minnesota!
The process to donate your miles is easy and free. And once you donate miles to Make-A-Wish, they’ll never expire.
Have a bunch of miles you’d like to donate? Anyone who donates 50,000 miles or more will be entered in our giveaway for a $500 Delta gift card!
Thanks again for all your generosity this week. Together, we can raise 2 million miles (or more!) by Sunday to make even more wishes come true.
Don’t have miles to spare but want to help out? You can also make monetary donations directly to Make-A-Wish Minnesota during our drive!
