You, yes you, can help give flight to a child's heartfelt wish.
Thursday, August 5 is the annual Make-A-Wish "Wishes in Flight" effort, which Seattle Refined, KOMO 4 and STAR 101.5 are so proud to partner on.
It's as easy as donating your unused airline miles (and goodness knows after the year we've had - you likely have some stocked up)!
More kids than ever are waiting for their wishes, and we need your help! Right now, about 600 children are waiting for their wishes, in part due to delays and postponements caused by COVID-19.
Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington estimates we need about 18.5 million miles to send eligible wish kids on their wish trips beginning as soon as mid-September. How quickly we can grant future wishes depends upon your generosity. Donate today—it’s a great way to ensure your miles never expire and go to good use!
It's easy! To donate miles or money during the Wishes in Flight Mileage Drive:
- Online: CLICK HERE
- Call (only on August 5th from 6 a.m. - 7 p.m.): (206) 588-8958
- Don't have miles but still want to help? Donate cash online HERE.
You can donate miles from Alaska Airlines, Delta and United - and American and JetBlue miles can also be donated online.
Tune in to KOMO 4 all day on August 5 to see inspiring stories, as well as learn about incentive hours and how your miles can go even further! Wishes can help children battling critical illnesses see the impossible as possible. Every donation is important :)
Over the years KOMO has helped Make-A-Wish raise more than 102 million miles thanks to our viewers like you. Let's keep that energy going!
