Aeroplan is offering its Points Matching Week in support of the Air Canada Foundation, which helps connect children with the medical care needed while being away from home. As always, 100% of the Aeroplan points donated will go to support the Air Canada Foundation’s Hospital Transportation Program. Aeroplan points donated to the Air Canada Foundation’s Hospital Transportation Program will be matched by Aeroplan and its partners TD, CIBC, and Avis Budget Group for up to 20,000,000 points.
Today we feature Valerie Durand from the Air Canada Foundation, who will share with us a points matching program for the Air Canada Foundation’s Hospital Transportation Program. Health care has always been a soft spot for us at Pointshogger, so thank you Air Canada Foundation for working on this initiative!
