SD Make-A-Wish seeks air mile donations
SIOUX FALLS -- This Thursday Make-A-Wish South Dakota has a goal of raising 2 million unused airline miles to help make travel wishes come true for kids across the state facing life-threatening medical conditions.
For the third year, a statewide campaign on KSFY-TV and NewsCenter1 will encourage travelers to donate their unused miles from Delta, United and U.S. Airways. Once the miles are donated they never expire and 100 percent of the donated miles stay in South Dakota. Over the last two years, more than 5 million miles have been donated, saving the organization more than $50,000 in airfare.
Watch KSFY or NewsCenter1 Thursday for more information. Miles will be accepted that day by calling 1-800-640-9198. Miles can also be donated online anytime at southdakota.wish.org. A minimum donation of 1,000 miles is required for Delta and U.S. Airways and 500 miles for United.
