The funds that the Howlers are raising for Give a Mile go directly to the taxes and related costs of flights and not to operations or administration. That means that every dollar we raise will be utilized to enable people to visit terminally ill family members. That is powerful.
Have you had a chance to visit the Give a Mile website (www.giveamile.org)? I was touched by the stories about the people that Give a Mile has been able to support at such a crucial time. Recently, Give a Mile was able to support an individual with a flight to see her father, who was dying of pancreatic cancer. Through Give a Mile, the daughter was able to travel across the country to be with her father in the last days of his life. This simply would not have happened without the support of Give a Mile. There are many stories like the one I have shared and I encourage you to visit the website.
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 (www.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.
