Rewards Canada’s charity partner Give A Mile
has launched their annual Flight Hero Christmas Campaign. We have
covered Give A Mile many times before on the blog and our podcast but as a quick refresher here is
what Give A Mile is all about:
Established in Calgary, Canada in February 2013, Give A Mile is
dedicated to bringing together the terminally ill, or critically sick,
with family members or close friends by crowdfunding airline flights
through micro-donations of travel loyalty miles. We work across Canada.
We are 100% donation model so all miles donated go to flights. We are
100% volunteer team with a Big Hairy Audacious Goal of giving 1 billion
miles to families that need these flights. A federally registered
not-for-profit agency in Canada, Give A Mile is recognized as a charity
by Aeroplan’s Beyond Miles program, and offers tax receipts for money
donations to donors through an agreement with the Place2Give Foundation.
For the 2020 Flight Hero Christmas Campaign Give A Mile’s goal is to raise enough miles to provide 25 flights of compassion.
Rewards Canada has signed on to be a Flight Hero for the 2020 campaign and our Flight Hero goal is to raise 50,000 miles!
We are asking our readers to help us reach that goal! Rewards Canada has donated 10,000 points to kick start our portion of the campaign and as we do each year we ask the Rewards Canada community to help Give A
Mile and Canadians in
dire circumstances get the flights they need to visit their loved ones.
Whether it is 1,000 points, 5,000 points or any other amount they are all greatly appreciated!
