Air Canada has launched the Gift Of Travel campaign, which raises money and Aeroplan points for charities in Canada.
The campaign is accompanied by the launch of the new video, a Gift of Travel, which presents the inspiring stories of Canadians who have a positive impact in their communities during the pandemic Covid-19
"Canadians from across the country have shown remarkable resilience, solidarity and generosity in the face of COVID-19 and we were inspired hearing stories of people who dedicated their time and energy to caring for others, making a memorable impact on other people's lives. We are proud to launch this campaign with our Gift of Travel video featuring heartwarming stories of community heroes and share the gift of travel through a message of hope and optimism from our employees as we all look forward to brighter days ahead," said Arielle Meloul-Wechsler, Executive Vice President, Chief Human Resources and Communications Officer at Air Canada. "We are also proud to continue our long-standing effort through the Air Canada Foundation in supporting communities through its inaugural Gift of Travel auction and the annual Aeroplan Matching Campaign."
The Gift of Travel campaign will also feature articles appearing on Air Canada's social media platforms about the inspiring work of Company employees to make things better in their communities.
Gift of Travel Auction
On Dec. 1, the Air Canada Foundation will launch its first ever online Gift of Travel Auction, featuring more than one hundred unique aviation items including special travel-related experiences such as the opportunity to own pieces of aviation history, fly one an aircraft simulator, own a one-of-a-kind kids' ride-on airplane, enjoy a private dinner event with one of Air Canada's celebrated Canadian Chefs among several other memorable items and experiences.
100 per cent of the proceeds will be distributed by the Air Canada Foundation to Canadian charitable organizations focused on the health and wellness of children and youth.
Matching Campaign Week
In addition to the Gift of Travel Auction, the annual Aeroplan Matching Campaign week supporting the Air Canada Foundation Hospital Transportation Program, returns this year.
Through this campaign, Aeroplan members can give the gift of health by connecting sick children to the medical care they need away from home.
From December 7 to December 13, 2020, members who donate Aeroplan points to the Air Canada Foundation Hospital Transportation Program will double the impact of their contribution with all points donated to be matched, up to 500,000 points.
