how it works
- Choose a story that moves you, or donate to the general pool. Most Give A Mile flight requests come from social workers, medical care providers or hospice care workers. All flights are medically verified and follow a review process.
- On our website, click DONATE NOW to take you to the page for easy dollar, Aeroplan miles, American Express points, Air Cash Miles or bitcoin donations.
- Get flight status updates and info on Give A Mile events on our website, on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube) and through our blogs. Please share!
- Feel great in your heart for creating this amazing moment of support, and… repeat!
become a flight hero
How great does it feel to know you helped make an amazing flight of compassion happen? That is what the flight hero program is about: 25 friends in 25 days, 25,000 miles making a flight happen for a family in need. Create a challenge at work, make it a family gift or turn a birthday party into a Flight Hero opportunity. If friends don’t have miles to give, $40 will purchase approximately 1,000 miles so that will work too! Email us at [email protected] to become a hero.
