UPDATE: A special thank you to everyone who helped the mission to make wishes come true for children with critical illnesses.
Thursday's "Wishes In Flight" Drive raised more than 7 million miles and more than $10,000 to help grant wishes for Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington!
Join us for the Make-A-Wish "Wishes in Flight" Mileage Drive on Thursday, August 2nd, 2018.
Help give flight to a child's heartfelt wish. Watch KOMO News for emotional stories of brave kids and see how you can help make their wishes take flight.
Each year, nearly 80% of local wishes involve airline travel. One-third of these miles are donated during our "Wishes in Flight" Mileage Drive! Donating your airline miles to Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington is an easy way to make a difference in the lives of children with critical illnesses at no cost to you. With more than 500 kids waiting for their wishes, we will use your miles to create magical memories and give these children back a little piece of their childhood. Every mile or dollar you donate will be used for trips for families and children in need.
You can help by donating airline miles from Alaska Airlines, Delta, United, American, Southwest, or Jetblue. Monetary donations are welcome as well. Tune in to KOMO 4 all day on August 2nd to see inspiring stories, as well as learn about incentive hours and how your miles can go even further!
A special thanks to Alaska Airlines - they will match mile for mile up to 500,000 miles donated in the 5pm hour.
