Here at Fly2Travel we enjoy helping others in need that is why we are donating 9,000 miles from United Airlines to 1-3 charities. As you know, there are so many great charities out there that we couldn’t pick them ourselves; that is why we are asking you, our readers, to help us pick! All of the 8 charities we have decided on are great, they all serve a great cause and are without a doubt deserving of our miles.
Below you will find a short summary of the top charities that we have picked. Once you have decided on a charity simply vote in the poll found below – the poll will be open for one week only. Based on the turnout rate we will donate the 9,000 miles to either one charity or split the miles evenly between 2 or 3 charities.
