MEMPHIS, Tenn., May 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- With summer quickly approaching, travelers who need extra incentive to book a trip need to look no further than this opportunity to receive a bonus for simply supporting a great cause. St. Jude Children's Research Hospital® supporters can now take advantage of Fly for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, a brand new campaign that rewards travelers with American Airlines AAdvantage bonus miles in exchange for donations. Thanks to generous donors – families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
Here's how to participate: Current and new AAdvantage members simply visit stjude.org/aadvantage to enter their AAdvantage program number and offer a one-time donation to St. Jude in exchange for 10 bonus miles for every $1 donated. American Airlines has donated three million AAdvantage bonus miles and the campaign will continue until all of the miles are gone.
Since 2006, American Airlines has provided airline miles to support St. Jude while creating annual awareness for the mission in their hub markets and encouraging employees to volunteer at St. Jude events throughout the country and close to home.
