Donate Airline Miles!

One of the most expensive portions of our impending travel to China is the airline tickets.  They could run us upwards of $4000 total for Coach seating.  GULP!

Right now, American Airlines is running the following special for those giving the gift of donated miles:

The gift AAmilesSM program lets you give the gift of travel to your family and friends. And September 8th through September 30th, give miles as a gift and earn up to 15,000 AAdvantage® bonus miles for yourself. Bonus miles are earned on purchases as low as 2,000 miles and increase with the more you give.

So if you're an American Airlines frequent-flyer - or just have racked up quite a few miles through a credit card, etc., consider donating them to our family before September 30th, and get up to 15,000 miles for yourself! 

If you have American Express Miles to donate, that works just as well!  We can use those type of miles for any airline!  Additionally, I've learned from a fellow blogger that Northwest Airlines has a program for Adopting Families - i.e. discount!  Woot woot!  So if you've got NWA miles, send em' on over!  (if you can, that is)

E-mail me if you would be interested in gifting our family with airline miles at

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE DONATED ALREADY!  More at our Fundraising Blog "Bringing Keira Home".

If things are still *tight*, at least look into/consider this:

We are probably going to go this route.

I heard about it from other people who adopted, so I will also pass it on. :)

Really praying that lots of miles pour in. . . I wish I had some to share. Praying also for the next batch of referrals to go thru your day. Can't wait to hear what's going on with the fundraiser. Heading over there next.
