Aeden's Bar Mitzvah
Aeden – being awesome – would like to use his Bar Mitzvah to do good for the world. He thinks bringing refugees and asylum-seeking families together in safety is a good thing. We agree!
The goal: raise at least 180,000 miles and $360.00.
“My name is Aeden Berman, and for my Bar Mitzvah project, I decided to help Miles4Migrants. I am an aviation enthusiast, and I wanted to do something related to airplanes for my Mitzvah project. After doing some research and talking to my Rabbi (who is also an aviation enthusiast), I decided that Miles4Migrants would be a good way to do good in the world, while still relating my project to airplanes.
Miles4Migrants collects frequent flyer miles and money from donors to reunite families around the world. I would appreciate it greatly if you were willing to donate.
How does it work?
When you donate miles, you’re pledging to fulfill a future case from one of our partner organizations. Our flight booking team will find the most efficient use of miles for each received case. Once we have a case that matches your specific pledge, we’ll work with you to book the flights.
We accept miles from many airline loyalty programs; however, based on the most frequent requests for departure/arrival locations, certain programs are used more frequently than others.
The most needed miles and points donations are:
- United Airlines
- American Airlines
- Alaska Airlines
- Southwest Airlines
- Flying Blue (Air France, KLM, Garuda, et al.)
- American Express Membership Rewards
- Chase Ultimate Rewards
- Capital One Rewards
- Air Canada/Aeroplan
The minimum donation amounts reflect airline programs' lowest single passenger award fare that Miles4Migrants can book for a refugee, asylum seeker, or asylee.
While our primary purpose is to use airline miles to book flights, these award flights often incur additional taxes/fees. Cash donations help us to cover those extra costs!
