Doctors Without Borders asking for unused Aeroplan points to assist with travel costs

Dear editor

As we know, Doctors Without Borders  (MSF.ca) performs an exemplary job of providing vital medical aid throughout the world; the response to the Ebola outbreak is a prime example.

Msf.ca relies on donations from ordinary citizens and is now asking Aeroplan members to donate miles. Donated Miles significantly reduce  the amount spent on air travel, meaning more of every dollar donated to MSF goes directly to providing medical care to people caught in crisis. This week, from April 13-19,  Aeroplan Miles donations at msf.ca/aeroplan  will have twice the impact when Aeroplan matches the first 500,000 miles donated. A painless way to help alleviate pain.
