Frequent flyers have been able to donate miles to help military families through the Hero Miles program since the program was founded in 2003. Now, two lawmakers seek to expand the program to include Hotels for Heroes, a program that will allow members of loyalty programs to donate their hotel points to wounded members of the Armed Forces and their families. Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD) and Congressman C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD) have introduced legislation to create the program that will help cover the cost of hotel stays while family members visit soldiers recovering at military or VA medical centers. Congressman Ruppersberger said, “We are thrilled to be able to help these soldiers heal with their families at their side by helping to reduce travel expenses. It’s one small way to show our nation’s heroes that we appreciate their sacrifices and the sacrifices of their families.” The bill still needs to be approved by Congress, and assuming a successful outcome, you’ll soon be able to donate your points to Hotels for Heroes.
