Get Skymiles when donating to cancer research!
The National Foundation for Cancer Research has launched a program in which donors can choose to receive Delta Skymiles when making donations of $25 or more. Donors receive 10 Skymiles for every dollar donated to cancer research.

“Our donors are very important to us, and we appreciate every dollar they can give to help us get one step closer to finding a cure for cancer,” said Franklin C. Salisbury, Jr., President of NFCR. “By working with Delta Airlines, we are very pleased to award Skymiles to donors to express our gratitude for their generous giving. We are thankful to Delta for joining hands with us and making this program possible.”

Skymiles can be redeemed for Delta flights as well as hotel stays, magazine and newspaper subscriptions, car rentals and more.

To make a donation and receive Delta Skymiles, visit Donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

This might sound insensitive, but they probably would have gotten better responses before DL stopped expiring Skymiles...

For most Skymiles promos, you need to register through your account on Delta first and then click a link.
