The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Arizona needs nearly 150 million airline miles per year to help grant wishes to children battling life-threatening medical conditions.

The donation of air miles is essential to getting wish kids and their families to their destinations, with 77 percent of wishes requiring air travel. Donating air miles through the Foundation's Wishes in FlightSM program is easy - and the miles never expire once they've been donated to the Foundation.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation is one of 45 charities eligible to receive a percentage of 10 million miles that United Airlines will donate in its 10 Million Charity Miles Giveaway. The giveaway runs through Dec. 31. Visit 10MillionCharityMiles.com to select the Foundation's logo and click "Vote." Membership in the MileagePlus or OnePass program is not required, and participants can vote once per day.

Many major airlines allow members of their frequent flier programs to donate airline miles to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. If you have air miles with Delta, US Airways, Continental, or United, you hold the ticket to a child's wish. Every traveler can be part of a life-affirming wish. All it takes is a simple airline miles donation. To donate airline miles visit www.wishaz.org and click on Ways to Help or call (602) 343-9437 to donate over the phone.

If don't have miles to donate but you'd still like to support the Foundation, you can make a monetary donation by visiting www.wishaz.org Remember to do it before Dec. 31 if you want to include it on your taxes.
