donate your excess airline miles to a worthy cause


Miles donated to Make-A-Wish help make it possible for terminally ill children to travel to their wish destination. The average number of miles needed for one domestic round-trip ticket is 50,000, but as few as 1,000 miles can be donated from participating airlines: Delta, United, and US Airways. More than 70 percent of all wishes involve air travel for the child and their family, so donating unused or soon-to-expire miles can have a profound impact. Once donated, miles do not expire.
Currently, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® does not have formal relationships with airlines not listed above; however, Make-A-Wish® chapters can use transferable airline vouchers or tickets on a case-by-case basis. To learn more, contact your local chapter.

Have some extra change you'd like to donate to a really good cause that goes right to the people who need it?  Consider the Faces of Hope Fund, a charity operated by top travel photographer Alison Wright.  She says, "With first hand experience I have seen how much a little money can do when put into the right hands."  Let's help her do more.

comedy website


Hankering for a little bit of funny?  Check out the Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee website for some laughs.  The current video being featured will delight Seinfeld fans--"A day in the life of Jerry & Kramer."  This is a long one, but well worth the time investment.


More "Seinfeld."
