Make-A-Wish® Seeking Air Miles In Honor of World Wish Day®

This April, Make-A-Wish® is celebrating World Wish Day® by launching a month-long campaign to raise air miles — a critical wish resource. Frequent fliers with air miles from Delta, US Airways or United are encouraged to donate their air miles to Make-A-Wish through its Wishes in Flight® program. Once donated, they never expire.

World Wish Day celebrates the day in 1980 when Chris Greicius received his wish to be a police officer, inspiring the founding of Make-A-Wish. Today, did you know:

n 75 percent of wishes involve travel? Locally, there are more than 525 travel wishes and a need of 124 million air miles.  

n There is an estimated 14 trillion, unused air miles sitting in frequent flier accounts worldwide?  

n In honor of World Wish Day, WWE® Superstar John Cena® will match every mile donated in April, up to 4.5 million?

n United Airlines will match every United MileagePlus® award mile donated in April, up to 3 million miles?
