As the buzz of Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals starts to calm down, we’ve got a memorable day on the horizon – Giving Tuesday. Giving Tuesday is a gentle nudge to shift our focus from getting stuff to giving back in a world full of shopping sprees and discounts.
This year, American Airlines is spotlighting this global day of generosity, proving its commitment to making a positive impact. Giving Tuesday 2023 isn’t just a day; it’s like a movement, and American Airlines calls on its customers and team members to team up and make a real difference.
Give Time: Picture this – over 300 American team members recently shared holiday joy by handing out meals and groceries to 6,000 North Texas families during the Thanksgiving Mega Mobile Market. It’s more than just dollars; it’s about giving time and making personal connections.
Give Miles: American Airlines knows the magic of miles and is using it for good. Tossing in some AAdvantage® miles can be a game-changer for organizations relying on air travel. This year, Americans donated 50 million miles to Make-A-Wish, ensuring kids with critical illnesses get their wishes granted.
Give Money: When disasters hit, American Airlines isn’t just an airline; it’s a helping hand. Through their partnership with the Red Cross, they’ve pulled together a cool $1.8 million this year alone for disaster relief. This money brings comfort and hope during hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires, and other challenging times.
For those who care about cancer research, throwing some dollars to Stand Up to Cancer through American Airlines doesn’t just help science – it gets you ten bonus AAdvantage® miles for every dollar you give on a gift of $25 or more. In their yearly fundraising campaign, American Airlines rocked it, raising nearly $4 million. That’s the power of coming together.
Giving Tuesday is about charity, and American Airlines makes it easy for everyone to join. You can do good things through the airline’s charity efforts. Do you want to help out? You can give your time by volunteering or handing out holiday meals to families who could use a hand—feeling like a superhero?
Giving Tuesday isn’t just a day marked on your calendar; it’s a moment to think about the significant impact we can have when we team up for a common goal. American Airlines isn’t just cheering on its customers; it’s leading the way, showing a global airline can be a force for good.
Giving Tuesday gives us a fresh perspective amid all the holiday shopping and end-of-year celebrations. It’s a day to hit the pause button, look past the material stuff, and embrace the true spirit of the season – giving. American Airlines gets it; they’re using their massive resources to inspire a giving culture, not just on a Tuesday but all year round.
Ron DeFeo, the Chief Communications and Marketing Officer at American, drives the point home: “Caring for people is at the foundation of everything we do at American.” This caring spirit shines through in their volunteer work, mile donations, and fundraising for crucial causes.
Giving Tuesday 2023 isn’t just a blip on the radar; it’s a movement, and American Airlines is leading the charge. They’re urging all of us to be a part of something bigger than ourselves.
As we ease out of the shopping craziness of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, let’s carry that generous vibe into Giving Tuesday. American Airlines isn’t just about getting you from A to B; they’re sparking positive change. Whether you decide to give your time, miles, or money, the impact is real, hands-on, and transformative.
So, let’s team up with American Airlines and folks worldwide on this Giving Tuesday. Together, we can sprinkle some kindness and make the world better, one good deed at a time. Ron DeFeo said best, “It’s amazing to see what we can accomplish together.” Happy Giving Tuesday!
