Main Digest

Since 1985, Miracle Flights has established itself as the nation's leading medical flight organization. Miracle Flights provides free airline tickets so that seriously ill children can reach life-altering, life-saving medical care and second opinions from experts and specialists throughout the United States.

This themed social media campaign is designed to inspire supporters to donate at flyit4ward.

The Flyit4ward premise is to share videos of donors folding dollar bills into paper airplanes and then nominating a friend to continue to Flyit4ward. The Flyit4ward website will feature heartfelt videos highlighting experiences from the nonprofit's beneficiaries, showcase family stories, tributes, milestone events and garner general support for Miracle Flights' charitable mission.

Contributors are encouraged to not only give on the landing page, but also to share the conversation and "fly it forward" by uploading their video on social channels and tagging friends and family using the #Flyit4ward hashtag. The videos will be promoted across the Miracle Flights' social media channels, including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and will also be located on the Flyit4ward website for the duration of the campaign.

"We hope communities around the world will participate in the Flyit4ward campaign. A donation of $20 dollars will fund 25 miracle miles and help a child receive specialized medical care," said Mark E. Brown, Miracle Flights CEO. "Flyit4ward is a creative giving campaign and a fun interactive outlet for our families to share their personal stories, all while supporting the cause. Miracle Flights encourages people to share the campaign by creating a paper airplane, uploading to their social channels, tagging and challenging their friends and flying it forward."

The national nonprofit, which has flown more than 55,000,000 miles has seen a steady increase in monthly flight requests, with a record average of 600 – 700 coordinated flights per month, and will hit a milestone this June, of flying more than 100,000 flights.
