Aeroplan’s Mile Matching Days are back for 2013.  Aeroplan will match each mile donated, up to 500,000 Aeroplan Miles, for each Founding Charitable Partner.

 On October 8th, we’re matching miles donated to War Child.

 War Child’s vision is for a world where no child knows war. They work to achieve this with three main pillars: education, opportunity, and justice. The miles donated by Aeroplan and by Canadians like you are used in a variety of ways. Some may be used to visit classrooms being rebuilt in war-torn Sudan, while others are spent on giving women and children in Kandahar safe spaces to learn and play away from exploitation and abuse. In the Democratic Republic of Congo, War Child provides opportunity for young people to gain the skills that they need to secure dignified economic employment and income for themselves and their families. Achieving their vision is a monumental task fraught with danger, but War Child is there in these conflict zones providing a solution.

 By donating Aeroplan miles to War Child through the Aeroplan Beyond Miles program, you are helping to make War Child’s work possible. You’ll help send staff to areas of the world like Darfur, Afghanistan and the Democratic Republic of Congo, as well as allowing field staff to come to War Child’s head office in Canada to report in person on the extraordinary success the programs are achieving.

 Why is War Child needed?

  • More than 2 million children have died as a result of armed conflict over the last decade;
  • Newborns in developing countries are 8 times as likely to die in childhood as those in industrialized countries;
  • Over the last decade, 20 million children have been forced to flee their homes because of conflict and human rights violations.
