Points For Peace | Make-A-Wish
The Points Guy has teamed up with Make-A-Wish to help make wishes come true for children with life-threatening medical conditions. Since the foundation was founded, over 285,000 wishes have been granted in the United States and its territories, with an average of one wish every 34 minutes. Make-A-Wish believes that these wish experiences can be a game changer for children and promote a stronger will to fight the condition and comply with medical treatments.
Travel is one of Make-A-Wish’s largest expense and over 77% of wishes involve travel. Last year, Make-A-Wish received 176 million miles in donations, which were put toward flights to grant 15,300 wishes.
More than 2.8 billion miles would be needed to cover every travel wish this year. It is our hope here at TPG that bringing awareness to this cause will inspire readers and fellow points and miles enthusiasts to donate what they can so that Make-A-Wish is able to fulfill as many wishes as possible.
