Time’s running out to donate to our biggest-ever charity campaign.

We’ve teamed up with the British Airways, Iberia and Aer Lingus credit cards from Chase in support of Comic Relief US, an organization dedicated to ending poverty and injustice around the world. Ten lucky donors will each take home a grand prize of one million Avios — and all you need to do for a chance to win is donate at least $10.

However, the deadline to enter the sweepstakes is tomorrow — Sunday, Jan. 30 — at 11:59 p.m. EST. In other words, you have less than 48 hours to donate if you want a chance to win.

Donate now

Since it was founded, Comic Relief US has raised over $330 million and positively impacted over 25 million people around the world, supporting programs that address both the symptoms and root causes of poverty and injustice. Comic Relief US harnesses the power of entertainment to drive positive change. Campaigns include Red Nose Day, Idol Gives Back, and Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief.

By helping us raise money to support the work of Comic Relief US between now and Jan. 30, you’ll not only be helping further the organization’s mission. As noted above, a donation of $10 or more will enter you into a sweepstakes for a chance to win one of ten grand prizes: a million Avios (for each of the ten winners). Avios are incredibly versatile thanks to the airlines’ distance-based award charts, and here’s just a snapshot of what you could book with a million of them:

  • 250 one-way, short-haul flights on British Airways or Iberia (covering less than 651 miles in distance)
  • 111 one-way, economy-class flights on American Airlines (covering less than 1,151 miles in distance)
  • 29 one-way, business-class flights on Iberia from the Northeast U.S. to Madrid on off-peak dates

In addition to sweepstakes entries, donating higher amounts may make you eligible to receive additional rewards — including a TPG sweatshirt, passport holder, a virtual points-and-miles consultation with TPG’s founder and CEO Brian Kelly, and more!

Don’t miss out on a chance to win a million Avios (and support a worthy cause) as part of our biggest charity sweepstakes ever. Donate now before it’s too late!
