United Airlines has launched a fundraising campaign to support the people and organizations responding to the wildfires in California.
If you contribute at least $50 you’ll not only help raise funds for the campaign; you’ll get some bonus airline miles.
Here’s the deal:
United is offering MileagePlus members bonus award miles for making cash contributions of $50 or more to the three disaster relief charities listed below. The airline has set aside 5 million miles for the offer and will match contributions made to the campaign up to a total of $50,000.
Donate $50 to $99 and earn 250 bonus miles
Donate $100 to $249 and earn 500 bonus miles
Donate $250 or more and earn $1000 bonus miles
The charities that will benefit from your donation to this campaign are:
North Coast Opportunities (for the Mendocino Complex Fire)
Shasta Regional Community Foundation (for the Carr Fire).
All these organizations are doing incredible work. Here’s some information from Airlink about just soe of what they’ve been doing to help with the effort:
“The Northern California wildfires are now the largest in the state’s history and United Airlines is launching a fundraising campaign to help Californians affected by the historic blaze.
Airlink is currently responding to the fires in partnership with Operation BBQ Relief. We’ve supported flights for volunteers serving 20,000+ warm meals to displaced residents and first responders.
As the fires burn through the region, Airlink continues to work with its nonprofit partners, ready to send responders or relief cargo when and where they are needed.”
The deadline for making your contribution and getting these bonus miles is August 30, 2018
