6.29 Million Reasons to Say Thank You, Washington!

Lev wished to go to Hawaii.
We had a problem: more than 200 children waiting for their wishes, and a need for airline miles to make their wishes come true.

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!

Do you have unused airline miles to give? Donating them online is easy and doesn't cost you a dime. Donate your miles today. Did you know that you can also bequeath your airline miles? Contact Renee Baars at 206.623.5341 for more information.
