Elire Make-A-Wish Minnesota Miles Drive

July 31st, 2017

Elire Make-A-Wish Minnesota Miles Drive

Elire recently hosted a Miles Drive from the Make-A-Wish Minnesota chapter. This unique fundraising opportunity started through our involvement in last year’s Oracle Direct Charity Golf Tournament, where Make-A-Wish Minnesota was the selected charity. Team Elire wanted to take the relationship a step further and see what else we could do for this amazing organization. 

For those unfamiliar with Make-A-Wish, their mission is focused on strengthening and empowering children battling life-threatening medical conditions. For these children a wish experience can be a game-changer, encouraging them to comply with their medical treatments and providing their families with hope. 

Over the course of two weeks, Team Elire and members of our trusted Friends of Elire network were able to donate their United, Delta, American, Jet Blue, and Southwest miles towards assisting with flight for wishes. Over 75% of wishes include travel, with the Make-A-Wish Minnesota chapter using over 75 million miles alone last year. We’re proud to say we raised $147, 658 miles total – with 102,500 of those miles going directly to our local Make-A-Wish Minnesota Chapter. The remainder of the miles are donated to Make-A-Wish International. 

To donate your own miles, click here.

For more information on Make-A-Wish, take a look at their website or sign up to volunteer!

It was an honor to work with a charitable organization that has touched so many in our community. For more information on Elire’s Charitable partnerships, or to meet with our team, visit our Elire in the Community Page.
