The donation is being made through the Air Canada Foundation, a registered charitable organization.

Donations to charities include plane tickets to support fundraising activities; financial support, and the donation of Aeroplan Miles to pediatric hospitals.

“The health and well-being of children are at the core of the Air Canada Foundation’s mission,” said Priscille Leblanc, who heads up the foundation.

The list of organizations that have received donations from the Foundation include the Starlight Children’s Foundation Canada, which will be able to acquire ten Fun Centre units for pediatric hospitals; the IWK Foundation, which will be able to redevelop its pediatric intensive care unit to support a family-centered approach including the addition of a family sleep room; and the Dreams Take Flight organization, which brings approximately 1,000 children each year to Disneyland or Disney World.
