Each year, the Make-A-Wish Foundation grants nearly 14,000 life-changing wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions. One of my relatives works for the foundation and knows firsthand how the wishes granted by the foundation are literally life-changing for these children.
During the month of April, Make-A-Wish is running a campaign to raise dollars and airline miles to fund airline tickets for granting wishes that involve travel. Almost 75% of wishes require air travel. According to Look to the Stars, approximately 50,000 airline tickets are needed each year to get wish kids and their families to and from their wish experiences. WWE Superstar John Cena has vowed to match every frequent flier mile donated during April, up to 4.5 million.
If you would like to donate any unused airline miles and make a child’s wish come true, simply go to: http://wish.org/tickets.
