With your help, NBC Connecticut and Make-A-Wish Connecticut collected over 3 million airline miles in the 2019 “Miles for Smiles” Campaign!
Your unused airline miles can be donated to help grant the wishes of deserving local children through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
NBC Connecticut had the phone lines open all day to collect donations – but if you missed it, you can still help! Donate your miles from these participating airlines: United Airlines, Delta, American, Southwest, and JetBlue.
No spare miles lying around? Make-A-Wish is also accepting monetary donations as well.
More than 70 percent of Make-A-Wish’s granted wishes involve travel and NBC Connecticut viewers have helped offset travel costs for many.
Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. Your donation will help children and their families through emotionally and physically challenging times.
