NBC Connecticut is connecting you to the Make-A-Wish Miles For Smiles campaign.
Call 1-877-847-3030 today and donate your unused airline miles, which in turn will be applied to granting the wishes of local children who are facing life-threatening illnesses.
All day long, volunteers will be at the NBC Connecticut studio answering the phones, accepting miles and monetary donations.
An average wish costs $10,000, so your donation is so important and appreciated. More than 75-percent of the wishes granted involve travel.
Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children faced with life-threatening medical conditions, giving them and their families a necessary respite from the challenges of their conditions.
Participating airlines include United Airlines, Delta Airlines, American Airlines, Southwest and Jet Blue.
