The last three holiday seasons, TripIt’s users have donated more than four million miles to make wishes come true. Join TripIt and Make-A-Wish in sending families on the trip of a lifetime this holiday season!
Every 38 minutes, Make-A-Wish turns a seriously ill child’s wish into a life-changing experience. Over Seventy-five percent (75%) of these wishes will include travel…that’s 2.5 billion airline miles and over 50,000 round trip tickets needed to fulfill this mission.
Lucas, 6, is just one example. Lucas, suffering from a cardiac condition wished to have a dolphin experience. Some of Lucas’ favorite activities are to swim, watch animals on the iPad and visit the Zoo—so it is no wonder dolphins were the main focus of his wish! Lucas, his parents and younger brother spent a week in San Diego and packed in as many activities as Lucas could handle. The highlight of the trip was, of course, the dolphin encounter—Lucas’ mom shared, “Lucas has a really special connection with animals so when he got to pet a dolphin, I know that was IT for him. It made his year.”
Lucas now asks his parents if he can “go pet a dolphin” a few times a month—the trip was truly one he will never forget and was an amazing experience for the whole family!
