Folks, The Frequent Traveler Education Foundation (FTEF) has teamed up with milepoint and American Airlines in supporting the Elizabeth Lenes scholarship fund. Elizabeth Lenes was an exchange student from Norway spending a year in Plains, Montana when she tragically was killed in a snowmobile accident. She was only 17 years old. My friend Morten is Elizabeth´s dad and he started a scholarship fund in Elizabeths memory. You can read about it here: http://www.elisabeth-sp.com/ The FTEF is donating 2000 USD to the fund, but in addition to that, we want to help the recipients of this years scholarships, Aaron and Mahala get to Norway to start their studies there. You can read about the two students here: http://www.elisabeth-sp.com/18/recipients-of-the-scholarship/ I called our friends at AA and as always, they were happy to help! So this year, I´m donating 60K of my miles and AA is matching the donation with 60K miles!! (Thanks, AA!) So on August 14th, Aaron and Mahala will take on their first long trip from Montana to Norway. Please follow this thread to get updated on the two students travels and their time in Norway. Thank you all for supporting the FTEF, we couldn´t have done it without you!
