Join us in helping disaster relief efforts: Learn how to donate
We're teaming up with leading disaster relief organizations to provide aid to those impacted by Hurricane Irma and Tropical Storm Harvey.
Beginning yesterday, we started a campaign to provide bonus miles to MileagePlus® members who donate to the organizations. We will also match the first $100,000 raised for Hurricane Irma efforts.
"My heart, and that of the entire United family, is with everyone that is suffering in the wake of Hurricane Irma and who remains in her path," said United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz. "We will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with them for all of the tomorrows required to rebuild and recover what was lost and to ensure the future remains as bright as ever."
MileagePlus members who give to the American Red Cross, AmeriCares, Airlink, Humane Society International or Operation USA through United's fundraising page can receive up to 1,000 bonus miles by entering their MileagePlus number at the time of their donation. Each of these organizations has teams deployed throughout the impacted areas to provide shelter, supplies, health care, and other much needed support to people in need.
We will award members miles based on the size of their donation:
- Donate $50-$99 — Earn 250 bonus miles
- Donate $100-$249 — Earn 500 bonus miles
- Donate $250 or more — Earn 1,000 bonus miles
We will award bonus miles to customers on a first-come, first-served basis based on contributions made through our fundraising page through 11:59 p.m. CDT on September 30, 2017. United customers have raised more than $8 million in the last 5 years for previous disaster relief campaigns.
