With American Thanksgiving this week and the Holiday season just around the corner, this time of year is all about festivities and joy. I wanted to draw your attention today to something that Aeroplan is doing that is really exciting. For those that might not remember, I have proudly been Aeroplan’s Brand Ambassador for over two years now. And why would I not be proud? I’ve been a loyal member of this program for over TWENTY YEARS!
If you don’t know how it works, it’s simple: sign up for an Aeroplan number, accumulate miles, and redeem them for practically anything you’d want! Beside redeeming miles for Flights around the world, Car rentals and Hotel stays, Aeroplan also has 12 categories where you can also redeem: Activities & Entertainment, Fashion & Accessories, Eco-Friendly, Electronics, Gift Cards & Ideas, Health & Wellness, Home & Garden, Luggage & Totes, Media & More, Sports & Outdoors, Travel & Getaways and Money Can’t Buy.
Members can now give back and donate Aeroplan Miles to some really amazing charities. And if you read until the end, we are giving you a special opportunity to make a real impact.
Launched in 2006, Beyond Miles links Aeroplan Members to ten outstanding Canadian not-for-profit organizations dedicated to improving lives and enriching communities at home and around the world.
Aeroplan Members can donate miles online at aeroplan.com/donate to the following organizations to help them offset costs related to travel:
- David Suzuki Foundation, Engineers Without Borders, Free The Children, Médecins Sans Frontières, MusiCounts, the Stephen Lewis Foundation, Schools Without Borders, Veterinarians without Borders, War Child Canada and The Air Canada Foundation.
To date, Aeroplan Members have donated more than 492 million miles! Wow!!
Aeroplan members can also donate miles through Aeroplan’s Charitable Pooling Program.
- Aeroplan’s charitable pooling program allows members to use Aeroplan Miles to support registered community charities or provide travel assistance for people and their families with medical or other emergencies. An account is established in the name of the charity, which enables them to pool donated Aeroplan Miles at no cost.
