San Jose Aug 25 Summit: Donate/Get Frequent Flyer Miles

Dear IV Members,

This thread is started for members who wish to carpool, donate air miles or arrange a group transport.

DONATE SKYMILES:
These airline miles would be used for the IV members coming from distant states. Please post on this thread and update your profile with contact details (http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/profile.php?do=editprofile) if you are willing to donate your skymiles.You need not transfer the miles at this time and only need to pledge. An IV volunteer will prepare a list of members who pledged and will contact you when your miles are needed. Miles on major carriers- American, United, Delta, Continental, Southwest etc..are welcome. Typically, it requires about 25K miles to get a ticket in continental US and all the miles for a ticket should come from one account.

An IV representative will keep a tab on all skymiles and connect both the donor and recipient after verifying that the recipient will be coming to San Jose and using these skymiles only for the Rally day for himself.

GET SKYMILES
If you need Skymiles, Please post on this thread , update your contact details (http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/profile.php?do=editprofile) and you will be contacted.

Hello Friends, I am trying to lead the efforts of Airmiles donations and redemptions. Please PM me, Contact me at Vara at immigrationvoice.org.

I would like to request members only come forward if they have atleast 12,500 with any of Delta, AA, United , southwest flights.

Allow 48 hours for the miles to post to each recipient's account
Credit card will be billed immediately for transfer

It may be better to use your miles to book a ticket for someone who needs it directly from your account, rather than transfering. This way you don't have to spend any money. Also, there is a small fee to book a flight using miles, whcih I'm sure you can get reimbursed from the person who will use your miles to travel.

I bought a tickect for someone using 25K United Airline miles. It's better to buy a ticket for someone rather than transferring the miles as transferring the miles costs more.

Whoever has miles please contribute.

Donated $300.00 and 25K miles so far.

Now that I am back from vacation from India , I just booked my airtickets for joining the rally in San Jose. I will be reaching on Friday late night and leaving on Saturday night

I attended the previous advocacy event in Washington in September 2011 and was impressed by the positive energy and the commitment of not only the IV core team , but also of each and every participant of the advocacy event. We could not come so far without the selfless and heroic efforts of all such people

Nothing could possibly mportant for us at this stage than contributing to this monumental effort.

We owe it to ourselves to fight for justice and ensure that discrimination based on country of birth becomes consigned to the pages of history !!

Please do whatever it takes to participate in this historic event.

Friends,
I can not come to rally due to unavoidable circumstances although heartly wish.
However I am sponsoring two 50% tickets from east cost.

Sometime People may have genuine reason for not coming to rally. Not necessarily they lie or just have false excuses. In this case, please show your commitment by sponsoring 50% contributions in tickets for others to join instead of you.
Ultimately headcount matters.
I am in touch with active members ritu, pak, skrish in NJ and trying best to help IV initiatives.
