DONATING MILES FOR CHARITY _____________________________________________________________________ A small step Giving orphans and street urchins a home, providing them with food and access to education, or being involved in nature conservation. There are many ways to do charity even without money. "Miles to Help" lets you donate some of the award miles you have earned. Your miles can be helpful: - HelpAlliance, the aid organisation started by Deutsche Lufthansa AG employees: 10,000 award miles can e.g. allow a child in India to attend school for an entire year. - Living Lakes, the Global Nature Fund's lakes network: For 10,000 miles, five trees can be restocked and new income opportunities created for the population in South Africa. - SOS Children's Villages: The Family Strengthening Programme allows a child in Latin America to live with his or her biological family for one month for 10,000 miles. _____________________________________________________________________ LAST BUT NOT LEAST _____________________________________________________________________ More than 70 million miles have been donated as part of "Miles to Help" since November 1, 2006. These miles helped save 54 hectares of the world's largest wetland, the Brazilian Pantanal, and provided medical care for more than 12,000 children in India. Generous donations even allowed 275 children to attend school this year.
