Make-A-Wish South Dakota seeks airline miles during March 10 campaign

SIOUX FALLS--A statewide campaign for unused airline miles will help make wishes come true for South Dakota kids with life-threatening medical conditions.

SIOUX FALLS-A statewide campaign for unused airline miles will help make wishes come true for South Dakota kids with life-threatening medical conditions.

The March 10 effort will benefit Make-A-Wish South Dakota, enabling the chapter to grant more travel wishes to kids across the state.

More than 65 percent of the wishes granted by Make-A-Wish require air travel, the largest expense of the chapter's annual wish budget. Miles from Delta and United are accepted. Once the miles are donated, they never expire and 100 percent of the donated miles stay in South Dakota. Over the last four years, more than 8 million miles have been donated, saving the organization thousands of dollars in airfare.

Miles will be accepted on March 10 by calling (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 500 miles for United. To expedite the process, you need to have your account number and know exactly how many miles you would like to donate.

The statewide effort is made possible by KSFY, NewsCenter1, Midco Connections and Midco.
