Aeroplan has a program called Beyond Miles in which its members can donate their Aeroplan Miles to its ten Beyond Miles charitable partners (such as Schools Without Borders, War Child Canada, the Air Canada Foundation, Médecins Sans Frontières and more) but we also have a Charitable Pooling program that allows members to use miles to support local grass roots charities in need.
Playwrights Theatre Centre (PTC) has a charitable pooling account, and through the month of August they are running a contribution campaign for their annual Writers’ Colony. Their goal is to raise 75,000 miles to transport playwrights from across the country to bring four new plays to life. PTC is a theatre company that finds, nurtures, and advances Canadian playwrights.
Now entering its eighth season, PTC’s Writers’ Colony has nurtured the work of 32 writers to date and alumni have seen their work go on to production in Vancouver, across the United States, and as far away as Dublin and Panama.
Once PTC reaches 90 per cent of their mileage goal, Aeroplan will contribute the last 10 per cent.
