Earn Up to 5,000 SkyMiles for Donating to the American Cancer Society — Again

“P lease remember that it is not too late to consider donating to the the Relay For Life of the American Cancer Society. We may have far exceeded our goal; but the next level is $6,000.00. For more information and details, please click here, as the official Internet web site for team Global Hashtags will still be available for at least the remainder of May.”

That was the conclusion of this article pertaining to the 2015 Delta Jet Drag which occurred earlier this month in which a gaggle of bloggers — I know, we are not geese; but I like that pseudo-alliterative word in this particular case — teamed up to pull a Boeing 757-232 airplane

…but you probably said to yourself, “I ain’t gonna donate no money unless I get me something in return.”

All right — your grammar is probably not that poor; and you are probably more altruistic than that…

Earn Up to 5,000 SkyMiles for Donating to the American Cancer Society

…but you might be in luck anyway, as you can earn a one-time bonus up to a maximum of 5,000 bonus SkyMiles for your generosity when you are amongst the first 5,000 members of the SkyMiles frequent flier loyalty program to donate to the American Cancer Society — with whom Delta Air Lines is a proud partner in support of life-saving research, screening and much more — by Tuesday, May 31, 2016, as shown below:

  • 500 bonus SkyMiles for a donation of $100.00 – $249.00
  • 1,000 bonus SkyMiles for a donation of $250.00 – $499.00
  • 2,500 bonus SkyMiles for a donation of $500.00 – $999.00
  • 5,000 bonus SkyMiles for a donation of $1,000.00 or more


If you prefer, you may also donate SkyMiles now through the SkyWish program. You must donate a minimum of 1,000 SkyMiles per charity; and you have a choice of a selection of charities. Once the transaction has been completed, the SkyMiles will be transferred to the selected charities and cannot be reversed. All donations to SkyWish charities are not tax deductible for neither SkyMiles members nor Delta Air Lines.

Another Way to Fight Cancer

“InsideFlyer has a long history of helping others, and we want to add to our history by partnering with the Freddie Awards and help women cancer survivors. SO—here in the month of May we will provide a member of InsideFlyer or a fellow flyer—encouragement in fighting cancer by donating two one-year subscriptions to BraveBox™.”

Those of the words of Randy Petersen — who is the founder of InsideFlyer and BoardingArea — who explains that “BraveBox™ is a monthly subscription box for women cancer survivors, by a cancer survivor. It’s like the Birchbox for cancer warriors. Each month inspiration, wisdom and amazing products are delivered right to the survivors door.”

Although the 2016 Delta Jet Drag already occurred this year, the “bloggers” were not invited back to participate — as far as I am aware, anyway…

…but that does not mean I did not participate in some form. I was asked to clean up the logo for one of the teams participating this year and convert it from a raster-based format to a vector-based format to ensure that it can be enlarged with no loss in quality. I do not know how that particular team placed; but that is of no matter, as awareness and needed funds were raised for the causes of all teams who participated this year.

You might already know that I lost my mother to cancer several years ago; so anything which can be done to combat this deadly disease is appreciated — and this is your opportunity to give while getting a little something in return.

The American Cancer Society is a qualified 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization and donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. No goods or services were provided for this gift. Please consult your tax advisor regarding specific questions about your deductions. Source: Delta Air Lines.
