1.25 Million Reasons to Say "Thank You, Alaska!"

We had a problem: 41 Alaskan 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 April 22, KTUU-TV viewers and the Anchorage community called, faxed, emailed, and donated their airline miles in person during our 4th annual Wishes in Flight® airline mileage drive.

We are thrilled to announce that, with the support of this community, together we raised 1,254,848 miles for local wishes!

Special thanks to KTUU-TV for their media support, 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, the Mall at Sears for hosting us, 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 Nicole Sheldon at 907.258.9474 or for more information.
