International Day of Friendship is celebrated across the world on July 30. When the United Nations first proclaimed the holiday in 2011, the idea behind it was that friendship across cultures and borders plays an important role in inspiring peace and community building.

Then, go outside the norm of American culture and try one of these international Olympic sports with your group. This friendly competition is an excellent way to both build old friendships and create new ones.

Throughout the country, Make-A-Wish needs 2.8 billion miles to fund every travel wish each year. With a much higher number of miles going to waste every year, you can be part of the change by donating your expiring miles!
