You are probably very aware that the Dog River Howlers have made it their mission to raise funds and contribute to worthwhile endeavours, some of which are not related to rugby.
Give a Mile is a Not-For-Profit looking to enable people to visit terminally ill friends & family through crowd funding of flights via micro-donations of travel points. I was moved by the organizations purpose. Said simply, they are people who have felt the compassion and love in visiting with someone who is terminally ill. The great compassion and support a visit like this has to offer is a powerful gift we can give.
A little more about Give a Mile… The organization was able to complete 7 flights during 2013. Their goal is to complete 50 flights in 2014, and they are well on their way, having committed to 34 flights in the first half of 2014. Impressive!
They cannot do it alone and here is how we can help. Give a Mile needs to raise $ 25,000 and secure donations of 1,000,000 Aeroplan Miles to make their 2014 goal a reality. In keeping with the spirit of supporting important endeavours, the Howlers are spear heading a campaign to help raise $ 10,000 for Give a Mile over the next month. Please take a moment to visit the Give a Mile website (http://giveamile.org/). I hope you can help support our campaign to raise $ 10,000 for Give a Mile.
I would also ask that you consider an Aeroplan Miles donation to the organization. The process is really very simple, just click on http://beyondmiles.aeroplan.com/eng/charity/515 and it will take you to the Aeroplan website where you can make your donation.
