You can make a difference in someone’s life. Through Miles of Hope, you can donate your Dividend Miles to 5 national nonprofit organizations – the American Red Cross, Mercy Medical Airlift, Fisher House Foundation, Make-A-Wish Foundation and Keep America Beautiful.
The miles you donate will help fulfill each organization’s mission and brighten people’s future.
Thanks to US Airways and the generous donations made through the Miles of Hope Program, the American Red Cross was able to send over 100 Emergency Services Program Managers and Volunteer Leaders to the 2011 Emergency Services Program Manager Institute. This provided the opportunity for disaster leaders to enhance their perspective, and further develop the skills and expertise needed to respond to a major disaster. Individual leadership, program management, volunteer development and management, readiness and planning are components of this learning experience. The Miles of Hope Program has made it possible for over 100 individuals to travel to this training each of the past six years.
Keep America Beautiful (KAB) is the nation’s largest volunteer-based community improvement organization. KAB’s network of over 3 million volunteers and more than 1,200 organizations serve their communities through beautifying public lands, local recycling programs, vacant lot restoration, graffiti prevention and removal, planting trees, and creating community gardens. Thanks to US Airways and Miles of Hope, your donation of miles will help to mobilize KAB and its grassroots leaders to take advantage of nationwide opportunities to better support the needs of communities and their local environments throughout the United States.

‘He’s working hard to keep his heart in the best shape he can, so it can make it through the next couple of months.’ Karen, a mother and teacher who is her family’s sole provider, was referring to her 18-year-old son, Joseph, who suffers from a rare disorder that results in progressive loss of his heart’s functionality. The family no longer owns a car, and Karen needed to get Joseph to her son’s doctor at Stanford University Medical Center. She learned about Mercy Medical Airlift (MMA) and was provided roundtrip tickets through Miles of Hope. Joseph, an Eagle Scout and active 4-H member, will soon require a heart transplant, and MMA is standing by to assist this remarkable young man. We urge you to donate your miles so MMA can help patients like Joseph have a second chance at life.
