How Frequent Flyer Miles Can Benefit Kids
Donating your miles can give Wish Kids an opportunity to make their dreams come true. Airline tickets are one of the biggest expense for Make-A-Wish, so every mile that can be donated can help the other dollars create a once-in-a-life time experience for a child who needs it.
Nationally Make-A-Wish needs around 2.5 billion miles each year to cover the 50,000 round-trip tickets needed for local children each year. Your donation of frequent flier miles can make a local child and their family very thankful.
Don’t Like To Fly? Send A Child On A Dream Vacation Anyways
Maybe flying isn’t for you – certainly plenty of people aren’t fans of air travel – and that means you might not have miles to donate. That’s OK, because you can still help make a local child’s dream come true by making a vehicle donation through Wheels For Wishes benefiting Make-A-Wish Greater Pennsylvania and Southern West Virginia.
Donating a vehicle will not only save you time and money that you would otherwise spend on getting rid of an unwanted vehicle, but the vehicle will be transformed into a wish for a local child and gives you a great tax deduction at the same time. Wheels For Wishes is an IRS–registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and your donation is 100% tax deductible. Your car can make a wish come true!
To donate a vehicle to Wheels For Wishes, please call us at 1-877-431-9474, or fill out our easy online vehicle donation form. You will feel great about what your unwanted car can do for a local child!
If your vehicle can’t take you to your dream destination, you can donate it to Wheels For Wishes and we could turn it into airline tickets for a local child needing to travel. You can be sure that your used vehicle will become so much more for a local child.
