You can do good with your airline frequent flyer miles. Through airline programs, nonprofit charities can use donated frequent flyer miles to provide flights for people who need to travel for medical reasons, for disaster volunteer assignments, and for special veterans’ programs. Most of the major airlines partner with charities to put those unused frequent flyer miles to work.
