Make-A-Wish Launches Give Wishes Wings Campaign for Airline Miles Donations

Air miles help make travel wishes come true for kids like Isabella

Trillions of airline miles go unused each year. Instead of letting them expire or using them for magazine subscriptions, those miles can easily be donated to change the lives of sick kids battling life-threatening illnesses in the local community. On Thursday, April 2, Make-A-Wish® Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia launched a month-long campaign – Give Wishes Wings – focusing on the unique and critical need Make-A-Wish has for airline miles. The campaign will encourage travelers who have unused airline miles to consider donating them to help grant the more than 75 percent of wishes that require travel for the local chapter.

How you can get involved:

If you have Delta, or United air miles, donate them today.  American Airlines and JetBlue also offer airline programs supporting Make-A-Wish.  The number of miles an individual can donate ranges from a few hundred miles to millions.  Donated miles never expire and are never used for anything other than wish travel for wish kids and their families.

Spread the word on social media

After donating your air miles to Make-A-Wish, post a video of you "flying like an airplane" and challenging your friends to donate their air miles on social media. Make sure you use the hashtag #GiveWishesWings.
