Host a Wishes in Flight® Airline Mileage Drive

Airline travel remains Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington's single largest expense.

Right now, nearly 80 percent of our wishes require airline travel, and we estimate it would take 80 million miles to grant all of the travel wishes we have. Currently, less than a third of the miles we need to send more than 290 kids and their families on their wish trips are covered by donors like you. 

Make-A-Wish supplies you with all you need to easily hold an airline miles campaign in your office. Foster teamwork and help those in your community by coming together to help make wishes come true! If you are interested in hosting a corporate mileage drive, please contact Caroline Reis at 206.623.5307.

What a wish truly does is beyond amazing. You gave my son back some of his confidence and got him interested in trying things he would never have done before. You made my son my son again. ”

Frequently Asked Questions

How many miles do we need to raise?

We recommend setting a minimum goal of 275,000 miles. Every 55,000 miles donated equals a free roundtrip ticket!

Airline mileage donations support Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington locally. These are unrestricted miles and may be applied to any wish child and family. 

How long should the mileage drive last?

Mileage drives can last for one day or go as long as two weeks.

From what airlines does Make-A-Wish accept mileage donations?

We work with Alaska Airlines, Delta and United. 

American, JetBlue and Southwest fliers are welcome to donate their points or miles to Make-A-Wish. However, we are unable to apply these points or miles towards your mileage drive total as they may not be directed in full to our local chapter by Make-A-Wish America.

What resources does Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington provide?

We will work with you to set a goal, select a timeframe, create a personalized toolkit that features a wish child, create a customized web link, and provide miles raised updates throughout the campaign.
