Throughout August 2018, Make-A-Wish is celebrating travel partners American Airlines, United Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Southwest Airlines, Allegiant Air, JetBlue, Avis and Airbnb by that have been made travel wishes possible, the company said.
Of the more than 15,400 wishes fulfilled in 2017 by Make-A-Wish America, approximately 77 percent required travel. Travel resources are the greatest need to grant more wishes for children facing critical illnesses. Make-A-Wish relies on airline partners, rental car companies and accommodation partners to make these wishes possible.
A wish experience is frequently a source of inspiration for children undergoing difficult medical treatments and a positive force that helps them overcome their obstacles. A wish can be the catalyst that rekindles a child´s belief in themselves and the promise of their future–travel wishes.
