Wishes can take children all across the United States, and sometimes all around the world. Every child that is granted a wish through Make-A-Wish Washington and Alaska is unique and so are their wishes. Washington and Alaska are two of the most beautiful states in the whole country. Alaska has more wildlife than any other state and is by far the largest state in the country. Western Washington is the only place in the United States with a rainforest. In unique states like these, “Wish Kids” don’t have to travel far to experience something amazing. Still, some choose to travel long distances to make their memories.
Whether they are from Seattle, Tacoma or Anchorage when “Wish Kids” choose to travel to exotic and exciting locations for their wishes, Make-A-Wish makes arrangements to ensure that their whole family can go along. Since more than 74 percent of all wishes granted involve some kind of travel, the Make-A-Wish Wishes In Flight program is vital to making wishes come true. Frequent Flier Miles can go a long way in helping make wishes come true. Since donated miles never expire, you can give a lot or a little, at any time!
Donating frequent flier miles is simple. Just fill out a frequent flier donation form for Delta, United, Alaskan Airways or US Airways and your miles will help children with life-threatening medical conditions receive their wishes. 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 Washington and Alaskan Children
When providing wishes, airline tickets can be one of the biggest expenses to Make-A-Wish. With so many children choosing to travel, every donated mile is important and goes a long way when helping children receive their wish. Throughout the nation, Make-A-Wish would need 2.5 billion miles, or about 50,000 round-trip tickets to cover every travel wish each year. Frequent flier miles can help children travel all across the United States, to cities like Los Angeles, New York and Dallas. Make a difference in the life of a child by making a donation today!
Don’t Fly? You Can Still Make A Difference With Your Car Donation
