To date we have provided 35 flights on our goal of 50.
If you missed the opportunity to help us with providing flights, you can still donate to our holiday campaign!

When we move overseas for work, we never think it is the last time we will see our loved ones. For Georgia, her dad’s last words at the airport spoke truth long before his diagnosis.
“When flying out to Japan he looked at me and said ‘I’ll never see you again’ of course I replied saying ‘Of course you will I’ll be back I promise’ and he replied back ‘but I won’t be here’. This was way before we got his diagnosis, yet the last words I heard from him ring out like a cruel joke from the universe. I’m very thankful that he was able to see me off at the airport that day because usually he works and my sister would step in to help, but that day he took me."
Georgia was gifted a flight of compassion provided byPoints.
