Give flight to a child's heartfelt wish this March by donating during the UW Mileage Campaign to help raise 1 million miles.
Fourteen-year-old Samantha, from Kennewick, has spent most of her life in hospitals battling a life-threatening heart condition among other serious medical conditions. When Make-A-Wish® Alaska and Washington gave her the opportunity to receive a wish, Samantha could think of nowhere she'd rather be than back at the hospital, spending the day as one of her heroes: a nurse. UW Medicine made sure it was a day she'll never forget.
Each year, more than 70 percent of local wish kids like Samantha make wishes that involve travel. We will use the miles you donate now for wish travel this summer. Currently, we have one child waiting to travel to Australia, costing approximately 500,000 miles, and over 13 children who wish to go to Hawaii, equiring approximately 200,000 miles each. Donating your airline miles to Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington is an easy way to make a life-changing impact on the lives of local children at no cost to you.
