Air Miles

Donate Your Frequent Flyer Miles

Donate your frequent flyer miles to Orbis and help fly ophthalmic experts to Orbis programs throughout the world! Just 35,000 miles can send one Orbis volunteer on a program to transfer and enhance skills of local eye care professionals where we work. We gratefully accept both United Miles Plus® and Asia Miles. Here’s how:

United Airlines
Whenever you fly United or on a Star Alliance carrier, ask to credit your earned miles to your Mileage Plus account. Star Alliance carriers can be found here http://www.staralliance.com/en/about/member_airlines/

To donate miles, login to your mileage plus account or call United at 1.800.421.4655 and request that your miles be transferred into Orbis’s charity miles account.  Each donation should be a minimum of 1,000 miles. Please notify Orbis of your donation by calling 1.800.ORBIS.US (1.800.672.4787), or by e-mailing donations@orbis.org.

Asia Miles
To donate your Asia Miles to Orbis, log into your account and click on “manage your miles”. You can donate an unlimited number of miles. However, each donation must be at least 10,000 miles, with further increments of 5,000 miles. For more information about Asia Miles and donation methods, visit the Asia Miles website
