So, we asked for your help, and you answered the call!
On August 7, KOMO 4 News viewers, as well as KOMO Newsradio and talk radio KVI listeners and our community called, faxed and emailed their airline mileage donations during our annual Wishes in Flight® airline mileage drive.
We are thrilled to announce that, with the support of this community, together we raised 6,291,529 miles and $6,435 for local wishes! That's about 157 airline tickets, a savings of more than $78,500.
Thanks to our wish children who shared their inspirational stories, Alaska Airlines for an additional 500,000 miles for a mileage match, local volunteers for joining us at the phone banks and to all those who called in to donate miles and make wishes come true.
It's not too late!
