NBC Right Now wants to say THANK YOU for our Make-A-Wish success
KENNEWICK, Wash. -- NBC Right Now wanted to thank their viewers for their successful Wishes In Flight Telethon Friday.
Between our viewers in the Tri-Cities and Yakima, in just one day we managed to get 1,784,579 air miles.
A Make A Wish volunteer said an airline ticket is about 40,000 miles. So with the donations, the organization which helps grant the wishes of children with life threatening illnesses received enough miles to pay for the flights of about 44 sick kids and their families.
Many viewers text $5 donations raising $860, and everything donated is staying right here in our community.
