Help From High Above

January 20, 2010

American Airlines has assisted Unicef's fund-raising efforts in the past, and they're doing it again in light of the horrific situation in Haiti. Flight attendants walked around with plastic bags and collected money. According to the attendant on the loudspeaker, the previous flight he worked, which was only half full, raised $500. Our flight, which was full, raised $985. I emptied my wallet, all $4, but then I went to the Unicef website and made a more substantial donation.

If you feel inclined to do the same, take a flight on American Airlines, which has raised over $4 million by working the narrow aisles of airplanes, or click here and go to Unicef's site directly.
