Help Wish Kids Take Flight by Donating Unused Air Miles March 2.
For the fifth year, a statewide campaign for unused airline miles will help make wishes come true for South Dakota kids with life-threatening medical conditions. The March 2 effort will benefit Make-A-Wish® South Dakota, enabling the chapter to grant travel wishes to kids across the state.
More than 65 percent of the wishes granted by Make-A-Wish require air travel, the largest expense of the chapter’s annual wish budget. Miles from Delta or United are accepted. Once the miles are donated they never expire and 100 percent of the donated miles stay in South Dakota.
Watch KSFY or NewsCenter1 March 2 for more information. Miles will be accepted that day by calling 1.800.640.9198. Miles can also be donated online anytime at southdakota.wish.org. A minimum donation of 1,000 miles is required for Delta and 500 miles for United. To expedite the process, you need to have your account number and know exactly how many miles you would like to donate.
The statewide effort is made possible by KSFY, NewsCenter1, Five Star Call Centers and Midco.
