Have some extra frequent flyer miles?????

Recommended Posts

Can't believe I haven't seen anything on this before. A little late in the holiday season, but still a good thing. Have you got a pile of frequent flyer miles, but no where to go??? Or not interested in buying any of the overpriced crap you could buy with the miles?? How about donating them to a good cause.... " Flyer points for troops Under U.S. military rules, soldiers serving in Afghanistan and Iraq are entitled to two weeks off and are flown free to Atlanta, Baltimore or Dallas, but then must pay their own way beyond that, a hardship for many.So Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, D-Md., launched a Web site (heromiles.org) where Americans can donate airline frequent-flyer miles for soldiers to use.Since founding the site two months ago, Ruppersberger has conducted dozens of media interviews, resulting in donation of some 200 million miles and participation from Delta, Southwest and Alaska Airlines. "This has nothing to do with being for or against war," Ruppersberger says. "This is about the troops. They had to go. They were ordered there."Ruppersberger has found the media more than willing to promote his project
