As you may or may not know, the cost of travel to the various
countries to deliver our workshops is the largest cost of each
project (accounting for more than 50% of the total cost). To help
alleviate some or most of this cost, TWB-Canada is part of the
Aeroplan pooling program. Using the form below, you, people you
know, your students and so on, can solicit donations of Aeroplan
miles to be donated to the TWB-Canada account. To put things in
perspective, if 10 people donated 10,000 Aeroplan miles each, that
would be enough for one teacher to travel to Africa!
Remember this is Aeroplan miles and not Air Miles. We are allowed
to solicit/collect miles for a month, so we will technically start
April 1st. Get your students involved. They don’t have to go door
to door. They just asks their relatives, etc. Spread the word to
all your friends too! If you are photocopying forms for students,
teachers, etc., make sure you keep track of who has forms (maybe
put a number on them so you know how many forms you gave out).
There are instructions on how to send the form directly to TWB, but
they can also return the originals to you and you can collect them
and send them to me (this would be preferable if you are getting
your class involved). We have to send them in all at once at the
beginning of May. We need the forms with the donors signature on
them so you probably can also scan them (colour, 150dpi res) and
email them to me as well.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask. Please note that
there are no tax receipts issued for donated Aeroplan Miles.
