Fast Facts about travel wishes:
Every three and a half days, a wish is granted in Nebraska. On April 29, WOWT NBC Omaha teamed up with Make-A-Wish Nebraska to help make more of these wishes come true.
According to Make-A-Wish, more than 70 percent of wishes involve travel and travel is often the most expensive aspect of a wish. Tuesday was devoted to collecting miles to create moments of hope, strength, and joy for children with life-threatening illnesses. The goal was to collect one million miles. As of 11 p.m. Tuesday, 1,273,906 miles were donated.
Many major airlines, including Delta, United, and US Airways, enable frequent flier program members to donate their miles. The best part about donating miles, especially those that are about to expire, is that they never expire for Make-A-Wish.
