Ten Childrens Books That Can Make A Flight Feel Shorter

Wish Kids often travel to fun places across the United States and all over the world. A child’s wish can take them to places like San Francisco, Hawaii and New York. One of the most popular destinations for the children of Make-A-Wish is Disney World in sunny Orlando. Wish Kids love meeting their favorite Disney characters, riding their favorite rides and enjoying a day out in the sun with their family.

Donations from everyday people make these trips possible. Whether you are donating a car or donating airline miles, you can make it easier to grant a wish for a child in need. Once a child has been selected and their trip is planned, they are able to fly with their family to their favorite destination. A long flight can be boring, and can seem even longer when anticipating an exciting new adventure. One of the best ways to pass the time as a Wish Kid is to read a book. We have put together a list of some classic children’s books that Wish Kids love, and your kids can enjoy as well!

6 Easy Ways To Save Gas On Your Summer Road Trip

It’s the middle of summer, which means road trips could be in your future – whether a few hours or a few days away. Gas prices are averaging about $3.50 nationally which means if you don’t want your vacation to put a huge dent in your budget, you should be looking for ways to add some MPGs to each tank of gas. Fortunately, there are some simple techniques you can try that can make your wallet less light at the end of the trip.

  1. Properly inflate your tires. According to the Department of Energy, every pound per square inch (PSI) that your tires are underinflated, you lower your gas mileage by 0.3 percent. That may not sound like much, but consider this: Proper inflation can raise gas mileage by 3.3 percent, or savings of up to 11 cents per gallon. Not sure what to inflate your tires to? Check the sticker on the driver’s side door jamb or in the car’s owner’s manual.
