Amazon Smile
We just love Amazon and it's "Smile" program. You can continue to shop online and 1/2% of your purchase price will be donated to the charity of your choice.

To register, go to smile.amazon.com. After you sign up start here to start shopping. It's so easy.

Hope on the Slopes
Another of our "no brainer" charities is "Hope on the Slopes." While they host events at various ski resorts, you can register to RIDE THE NET, get the free "Trace" app for your smart phone and ski/ride the snow. There is a season long competition for the most vertical feet and more. By signing up you raise money for the American Cancer Society. For more information, visit hopeontheslopes.net.

Make A Wish
The Make-A-Wish Foundation® needs more than 2.5 billion miles, or 50,000 round-trip tickets, to grant wishes each year. Your miles make wishes come true.

Once donated, your miles will never expire and are used to support wishes across the country. This is just one simple way you can help grant a life-changing wish experience.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation® has formal relations with Continental, Delta, United and US Airways. They cannot accept points from American. Points and Frequent Flier miles donated to charity are not considered tax deductible.

Visit http://www.wish.org/help/donate_airline_miles to donate your miles.
