Make-A-Wish Tri-Counties is asking people to donate frequent flier miles to help grant wishes. To donate, go to the Donate Airline Miles form, or call 805-676-9474.
63% of all Make-A-Wish Tri-Counties wishes involve air travel. Locally, 8 million miles are needed annually to grant wishes. Less than 2 million are donated each year, making airline tickets the most avoidable but significant expense for the local chapter.
Make-A-Wish Tri-Counties grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. With a staff of only seven and the help of more than 100 volunteers, Make-A-Wish Tri-Counties has granted more than 1,500 special wishes to children in Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties. If you want to refer a child to Make-A-Wish Tri-Counties, call 805-676-9474 [WISH]. Donations may be sent to Make-A-Wish at 4001 Mission Oaks Blvd., Suite F, Camarillo, CA 93012. To donate your vehicle call 877-227-9474 [WISH]. For more information on these or other ways to help visit our website at: www.tri-counties.wish.org.
