Air Miles Drive

How You Can Help

Last year alone, Make-A-Wish® granted wishes to 823 children in Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana - over 600 of these wishes involved air travel.

Our need is great. Each year, Make-A-Wish provides approximately 3,400 airline tickets, the equivalent of 180 million airline miles, to help Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana wish kids and their families travel to incredible wish destinations.

Donations can be made online anytime:

Our goal is to raise 2 million airline miles through this year’s Make-A-Wish Air Miles Drive, in addition to monetary donations. Donating miles or dollars is a simple way to make a difference in the lives of local children with life-threatening medical conditions.

On Tuesday, April 14th, community members can support our mission through the Air Miles Drive by calling our phone bank at 877-206-9474 from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. A Make-A-Wish volunteer will be available to take your mileage account number for Delta or United airline miles. The minimum donation is only 500 miles for United and 1,000 miles for Delta.

If you don’t have a mileage account with one of the designated airlines, Make-A-Wish will also accept cash donations to help offset travel expenses. For example, the following donation amounts can be put toward travel expenditures including:

  • confirmed seating - $25
  • baggage fee - $50
  • luggage - $100
  • passport - $150
  • trip insurance - $200
  • oxygen concentrators - $300
  • limo ride to the airport - $500

Tune in to 13abc in Toledo and WLWT News 5 in Cincinnati for regular updates throughout the day.
