Founder Kevin Long and the team at Give A Mile help to connect loved ones when they need it most. After experiencing the loss of his close friend Ryan, Kevin launched Give A Mile. According to the Give A Mile website, “Give A Mile is a group of dedicated volunteers who believe strongly in the power of visits from loved ones for people in palliative or critical condition.”  The organization uses donated flight miles to purchase flights that allow family members to travel to be with critically ill loved ones.  100% of donations go to “flights of compassion” and associated travel fees (taxes, transfers).  The operating costs for Give A Mile are fundraised for separately.  Give A Mile believes in total transparency - their financial records are posted on the website. You can hear Kevin’s story on the Give A Mile website, and read Ryan’s blog.  If you feel inspired to help the Give A Mile team connect families at such a crucial moment in life, click here.  Remember you can donate your unused flight miles or make a monetary donation.
