Natural disasters can bring such a tragedy and an even greater need for help to those affected. Recently a typhoon struck the Philippines killing at least 1,200 and leaving hundreds more homeless and in dire need of supplies.
There are many ways to contribute to the efforts and Rocketmiles is working with Bangon Bantayanons to donate a relief package with each booking through this link. Not only will you get your miles and points, but you will help provide a package which will include 1 tent, 1 gas lamp, 6 pounds of rice, 1 gallon of water, 15 canned goods, soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes, shampoo, laundry detergent, baby wipes, matchsticks, and disinfectant.
If you are not able to make a booking and would still like to contribute, Gary at View from the Wing has compiled a list of ways to donate and earn miles or just to donate money.
I do not receive anything for you booking through any of these links. This is just another great way to contribute to relief efforts while still doing something you love doing which is traveling. Please provide links below if you want to add to places we can donate to.
