Loyal readers know how important Points for Peace is to me — and I’m always coming up with creative ways to help achieve our goals of flying Nobel Peace Prize laureates around the world to teach the world’s youth about peace. At the same time, I’ve been a strong supporter of Housing Works, an organization that gives housing and legal support to some of the most underserved New Yorkers — those homeless and living with HIV/AIDS. This weekend I’m supporting both causes, and now you can join me.

I’m looking for five people to come fly with me, one-way on a BLADE helicopter this Thursday at 5:15pm, to East Hampton AND attend the Labor of Love party at my house on Saturday.

Tickets for this one-of-a-kind experience cost $795 per person — the usual fee for a one-way trip from BLADE — and there are only five seats available. Keep in mind that the price also gets you into the Labor of Love party (normally $150 per person), which benefits Housing Works and will feature a performance by Dita Von Teese.

What’s more: Miles will be on the helicopter with us.

The experience begins at 4:30pm at the BLADE lounge at the West 30th Street Heliport in Manhattan — at which time you can start talking points and miles with me or just enjoy the BLADE experience. Plus, you’ll be skipping the crazy Labor Day traffic. Interested? Email me to RSVP at blade@thepointsguy.com. Tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis, and you must already have or create a BLADE account and add a form of payment.

As always, if you have any questions about Points for Peace, please don’t hesitate to reach out at peace@thepointsguy.com.
