Southwest donates five million Rapid Rewards points to Make-A-Wish

Southwest Airlines Co. (NYSE: LUV) and five-time GRAMMY® Award nominee, Khalid, have embarked on a journey to bring fans closer to the rising star, the company said.

Kicking off Southwest: On The Rise with Khalid in San Jose, CA, Southwest® surprised hundreds of fans with a free show to launch the program in a market that serves as a priority for the airline. Khalid´s dedicated fans were up close to the artist during this intimate concert, underscoring the heartfelt connections that are a key theme of the partnership this holiday season.

To continue the partnership´s spirit of giving, Southwest is donating five million Rapid Rewards® Points to Make-A-Wish to help grant even more wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
