KVUE is partnering with the Make-A-Wish Foundation's Miles for Smiles campaign.

Every airline mile donated helps kids with a life-threatening medical condition and their families travel to destinations around the world. Once donated, your miles will never expire and are used to support wishes across the country.

 

As of Tuesday morning, Make-A-Wish had received a little more than 600,000 donated airline miles. Its goal is to reach one million donated miles by the end of August to receive a $30,000 grant for wishes, so the campaign is not over.

To donate call 512-329-9474 (WISH). You can also donate online here: www.cstx.wish.org/miles Only airline miles from Delta, United and US Airways can be accepted.

More than 75 percent of wishes require travel of some kind. Local wish recipients can wait an average of six months or longer to receive their wish because of the lack of airline miles.
