It has been a rough year for California when it comes to wildfires. Over 40 fires have burned through the state since February. Of those, there are eight that have not been contained. Fire crews from throughout the United States have gone to California to provide relief. While I am no firefighter, I have an opportunity to assist in the relief efforts. I received the following email a few days ago:
As wildfires continue to impact communities across California, we ask you to please join us in supporting our humanitarian aid and disaster relief partners — American Red Cross, Americares, Airlink, North Coast Opportunities and Shasta Regional Community Foundation — as they provide urgent aid to those in need. If you’d like to contribute, United® would like to thank you for your generosity with MileagePlus® bonus miles:
- Donate $50–$99 and earn 250 bonus miles
- Donate $100–$249 and earn 500 bonus miles
- Donate $250 or more and earn 1,000 bonus miles
United will match up to $50,000 donated to our campaign, and we’ll award a total of up to five million bonus miles to MileagePlus members who donate to these organizations by August 30, 2018.
Here is the donation link.
United assisted with Hurricane Harvey relief efforts in the same manner. To date, the campaign has raised nearly $300,000.
