This week is the Air Canada Foundation and Aeroplan Miles Matching Week in support of the Air Canada Foundation Hospital Transportation Program. This program redistributes the Aeroplan Miles donated by Air Canada customers to 15 pediatric hospitals across Canada by providing flights for sick children who need specialized health care not available in their community. Aeroplan will match all miles donated from December 5 and 11, 2016 up to 500,000 Aeroplan Miles.
“This is an amazing opportunity for the Air Canada Foundation to add to our own efforts by accumulating Aeroplan Miles for the Hospital Transportation Program, giving sick children access to advanced medical treatments not available in their community,” said Leslie Quinton, Vice-President Corporate Communications at Air Canada and Air Canada Foundation board member. “Each year, hundreds of families count on the program to ease part of their financial burden at a time when they need to focus their attention on the health and well-being of their child. We are grateful to be able to do more because of the generosity of Aeroplan members.”
In the past four years alone, over 50 million Aeroplan Miles have been donated to 15 pediatric hospitals with the sole objective of helping sick children obtain the medical care they need.
“Thanks to our members’ generosity, every mile donated makes a huge impact to families and communities across the country and we’re proud to help our partner, the Air Canada Foundation, make a difference and share in what is truly important to them,” said John Boynton, Chief Marketing Officer, Aeroplan.
