One holiday wish…the gift of a last goodbye.
You can help us reach our goal of 75 flights of compassion this holiday season.
At Give A Mile, we’re on a mission to make sure that no one dies alone — especially during the holidays — a time when making memories together is more important than any other time of year.
This year, rising living costs are making a flight to be at the bedside of a dying loved one even more out of reach and we’ve seen a significant rise in applications.
So we’ve set our most challenging goal to date: to make 75 flights in Canada and the US a reality — to bring even more families together for a final goodbye.
Like Jerry and his mom. Before Christmas last year, Jerry was told his mother only had 6 months to live since chemotherapy and surgery hadn’t worked for her cancer. Then she’d had a stroke and was deteriorating quickly. Jerry needed to be by her side, but unfortunately he and his wife, Diane, couldn’t afford a flight. After meeting the criteria, Give A Mile granted Jerry and Diane flights.
Diane wrote: “We can’t even begin to tell you how much we appreciate this opportunity. From the bottom of our hearts we thank you all for your time and efforts and commend your initiative.”
We need your help to bring together more families like Jerry and his mom.
Our goal by January 2, 2024 is to raise:
- 3 Million Aeroplan Points
- 1 Million United MileagePlus Miles
- 8 Million Scene+ Points
