Each and every child is different, and each and every wish granted by our partner, Make-A-Wish, is just as unique. Wishes granted by Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area can take children all over the country and sometimes even to different continents! California, and the bay area have a lot to offer, but throughout the country more than 74 percent of all wishes granted involve travel. While the now famous Batkid was able to accomplish his wish without leaving the city, many others choose to travel to exotic places, like Japan or South Africa to make their wishes come true.
Make-A-Wish helps bring children and their families to destinations all across the world and helps them to live a day free from the worries of their critical illnesses. With so much travel taking place, the Make-A-Wish Wishes In Flight program is very important in making wishes come true. Frequent flier miles can go a long way in helping “Wish Kids” and their families travel to their destinations. Your donated miles never expire and can help make a child’s wish come true!
Turning your frequent flier miles into wishes is simple. All you have to do is fill out a frequent flier donation form for Delta, United or US Airways and your miles will help a child with critical illnesses receive their wish. You can also donate to Make-A-Wish by turning your JetBlue TrueBlue reward points into dollars for charity.
Other ways to help include:
- Hosting a banner or badge on your website
- Asking an employer to donate miles
- Hosting a frequent flier miles donation drive at your workplace
Frequent Flier Mile Donations Can Benefit San Francisco Children
Since airline tickets are one of the largest expenses for Make-A-Wish, your donated frequent flier miles can go a long way in helping children receive their wish! In order to grant the wishes of every eligible child in the United States, Make-A-Wish would need 2.5 billion miles, or about 50,000 round-trip tickets, every year. Your frequent flier miles can help children travel to cities like Dallas, Madison and Greensboro. What might seem like a small donation to you can make a huge difference in the life of a child.
