Please join us to support Sandy relief.
We can all help support AmeriCares in providing aid to those affected by Sandy. AmeriCares has delivered medical relief and humanitarian assistance to millions affected by natural and man-made disasters worldwide for 30 years. In the past year alone, AmeriCares responded to several emergencies in the U.S. including Hurricane Isaac in Mississippi and Louisiana, tornadoes in Kentucky and Indiana and wildfires in Colorado. In 2011, in response to one of the worst tornado seasons in decades, AmeriCares delivered nearly $3 million in aid for disaster survivors all across the country.
When heavy rains and flooding force residents to be evacuated from their homes, AmeriCares delivers personal care items and bottled water to shelters and food banks assisting displaced families. The aid organization also delivers cleaning supplies to help families in the U.S. cleaning up storm damage, as well as medical aid for evacuees with chronic health problems forced to flee their homes without their prescription medicines. Their support is in great need in the area affected by Sandy.
Join the relief efforts by donating to the AmeriCares, and we will reward your generosity by providing you with a one-time MileagePlus® mileage bonus. MileagePlus members who give $50-$99 USD will receive 250 bonus award miles, and those who contribute $100 USD or more will be rewarded with 500 bonus award miles. We are committed to awarding up to 5 million total MileagePlus miles to members for contributions made before November 30, 2012, to support this initiative.
