Aeroplan is celebrating 15 years of Mile Match Week and for the first time, Globalmedic has been selected for one of Aeroplan’s Mile Match Weeks! From Sept 13 – 19, Aeroplan has promised to match the first 500,000 points donated.
What does this mean for you?
It means GlobalMedic has the opportunity to make more of an impact through your help.
All donated Aeroplan points go towards getting aid where it needs to be. Whether that be the equipment to keep our operations moving, the transportation of our program supplies, or flights for our team members deploying for a disaster response, these points count. All of the money we save on these costs is carefully put towards our essential programming – specialized materials such as water purification equipment, emergency food, critical infrastructure tenting, and hygiene items. Without these materials, GlobalMedic could not have the life-saving impact that it does.
How this helps GlobalMedic
Donated points help get our boots on the ground. The COVID-19 pandemic closed down many borders across the world. However, since the vaccination rollout, countries have begun to cautiously reopen their borders and many different organizations have started deploying personnel, including GlobalMedic. Our RescUAV drone team is deployed to St. Vincent and the Grenadines to map out the damage and coordinate with local officials on humanitarian action needed as a result of the eruption of La Soufriere volcano in April of this year. Also, our Rapid Response Team recently returned from Haiti after delivering six water purification systems to support communities affected by the earthquake that struck on August 14th.
GlobalMedic’s goal has always been to get the right aid to the right people at the right time, based on the idea that aid could be delivered more effectively and efficiently. Professional emergency workers along with other professional and skilled volunteers help deliver our programs to the people who need them most. Donated points will go to more than team deployments, as we regularly transport program supplies and equipment for both our international and national responses.
All donated Aeroplan miles from Sept 13 – 19 will have double the impact, and GlobalMedic is excited to see what that can do for our program scope. Every donated mile will go towards our emergency response programs, from our Family Emergency Food Program to our response to fight COVID internationally.
Thanks to your ongoing support and the support of Aeroplan, GlobalMedic can continue doing what it does best, serving our global community.
