American Airlines is standing up to cancer with a special promotion for the month of July, allowing people making donations to put their loved one’s name on the official Stand Up To Cancer plane—the names will be incorporated into the final plane’s design when it takes flight; miles are also donatable.
Throughout the month of July, American Airlines is running a donation campaign for cancer research with a pretty cool end result. Anyone donating $25 or more can submit the name of a loved one that will be incorporated into the airline’s official Stand Up To Cancer plane’s final design. Each name requires its own donation.
According to the promotion’s website, “100 percent of your donation received by SU2C will support Stand Up To Cancer’s collaborative cancer research programs.” But remember, “you must have permission from the honoree or from another appropriate party, such as the honoree’s estate or legal guardian, to submit their name,” the terms and conditions say.
Other opportunities to participate in the company’s cancer charity initiatives happen outside the month of July (though you can still do it through July as well): For $25 or more, you’ll earn 10 AAdvantage miles for every dollar you donate, and you can donate the miles you already have to the Miles for Our Well-Being program, which helps connects patients and treatments.
