On November 14, 2019 that dream became a reality when an amazing evening was hosted at Sub Rosa YYC.
This is just one event as part of the Give A Mile holiday giving campaign with aim of achieving the following goals by Christmas:
- Commit 50 flight heroes
- Collect 3 Million loyalty points
- Raise $41,000 corporate and other donations
- Connect 50 flights of compassion
The Give A Mile Gala event contributed $24,000 to our fundraising efforts!
GiftsÂ of unused loyalty points (Aeroplan, Starwood, Marriott and Amex Rewards, etc.), and monetary or volunteer-time offerings are easily done through theÂ Give A MileÂ websiteÂ DONATE NOWÂ page. These will help us make our target to raise funds and points for 20 flights of compassion during Motherâ€™s/Fatherâ€™s Day Campaigns 2019. Fully 100% of funds and points are applied to flights of compassion and related taxes/fees forÂ specific flight stories, or in the general pool to be applied against any flight.
SupportÂ theÂ Give A MileÂ 2019 Christmas Campaign. Help more loved ones share final farewell and create lasting memories through your generous giving. A 100% volunteer-driven organization,Â Give A MileÂ could not work without the help of others. We want to award 60 flights this Campaign, so please post a message about us on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook; we are grateful.
