Who We Are

Give A Mile is a registered nonprofit that offers flights to connect people in palliative or critical care with their loved ones. We allow them to create moments and make memories that will live on. 

Give a Mile is a registered non-profit in Canada and the US that offers flights worldwide.


Give A Mile uses donated frequent flyer miles, loyalty points and cash from compassionate individual donors and corporate sponsors to purchase flights. 

Donations cover round-trip flights of compassion, travel fees and taxes so families can focus on what matters most: sharing final moments with their loved ones. 

our inspiration

Founder, Kevin Crowe, experienced the power of a final goodbye during the passing of his good friend, Ryan Westerman. In Ryan’s final days, both he and his close family and friends were at peace knowing nothing had been left unsaid and wished that more end of life experiences could unfold this way for more people 

In time, Kevin learned that trillions of air miles went unused in 2011 and this fact spurred him to begin Give A Mile as a way to continue Ryan’s legacy.
