For the Troops (13/365) Donate frequent flier miles

Posted Oct 28 2009 11:04pm

I don't know about you all, but I get that periodic letter from the frequent flier miles program telling me to buy magazines or lose my miles. I usually lose them

Here's something better to do with miles: Donate them to troops' families.

There are many organizations accepting miles, but one of the easiest ways is to donate them through Fisher House:

Visit their Hero Miles Program Here:

Through the generous donations of many individual Americans, they have been able to give more than 18,000 tickets worth $25 million to troops' families. Many times the trips they take are from home to a military treatment facility to visit a spouse undergoing treatment for wounds received in combat. Helping families when they need us is a way to thank them for the sacrifices they have made for us.
Thanks for your interest in my blog feed! Read more at http://www.coppolathebook.blogspot.com. The book "Coppola: A Pediatric Surgeon in Iraq" will be published by NTI Upstream, Chicago, IL in November, 2009
