Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Thursday, 4 October 2007

Air Canada Kids' Horizons is celebrating its fourth year of supporting children's charities and non-profit organizations in Canada by donating one million Aeroplan miles each to five groups that promote children's health, fight poverty among young people and grant special wishes.

"People at Air Canada enjoy both the challenges and satisfaction of running an airline. However, our challenges pale compared to those faced by ill or disadvantaged children and for this reason many of the most satisfying moments at Air Canada come from supporting organizations that make a positive difference in children's lives," said Montie Brewer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Air Canada. 

"While Air Canada itself is a community of caring people, we are also part of the broader community. We are very pleased to be in a position to be able to help young people deal with health and poverty issues or simply bring them respite and happy lasting memories by granting their wish to fly off to special places."

The five million Aeroplan miles, the equivalent of 150 trips, were donated Wednesday to: The Children's Miracle Network Canada, Breakfast Clubs of Canada, Street Kids International, Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation Canada and Dreams Take Flight.
