Airlines have made a big announcement:
To recognize breast cancer awareness month, American Airlines, its team members and its customers will “go pink” this October to raise awareness and critical funds for long-time partner Susan G. Komen.
Every dollar raised by American and its customer goes to support the Susan G Komen young Investigators Grant Program. “Breast cancer is a disease that has touched us all in one way or another and we stand with Susan G Komen to raise funds, build awareness and take action in the nonstop fight against breast cancer.” said Chris Singley, Managing Director of Community Relation & Employee Engagement for American.
“When I was first diagnosed with breast cancer, I compare myself to other cancer fighters. But I learned your cancer belongs to you and no one else”, said Felecia Ingram, a charlotte, north Carolina (CLT)-based flight attendant and 2018 American airlines be pink campaign participant. “Each day you live, fight! Each day you are able to fight, live!”
Pink will play a prominent role in flight. Customers will notice that everything from beverage napkins to in flight menu, amenity kits, Wi-Fi portal and more have gone pin for month of October. For the first time ever, customers can donate directly to Komen while in flight. AAdvantage customers can receive 20 AAdvantage miles for every $1 donoted to Susan G Komen with a minimum donation of $25 from Oct.1 to Oct.31.
