On March 11, 2011, there was a devastating earthquake and Tsunami that hit my beloved Japan. To think, I was there just five months ago in Tokyo and had no idea a natural disaster was coming. It still hits home that you just never know.
On a more positive note, it is amazing to see the world pulling together to help Japan. While it’s uncomprehensible what they must be going through, I am really proud of the major airlines and the Red Cross organization for coming together on this movement to help raise funds for Japan.
Here are some quick ways you can help and earn mileage.

Have your SkyMiles account number and PIN available when calling. To donate miles by mail, e-mail or fax, please prepare your request in writing making sure to include the following information:
