United Airlines has teamed up with the American Cancer Society to do something pretty cool.
For every $50 that you donate to the American Cancer Society between now and January 31, 2008 (the Web site says December 31, but you have all of January to do it), you’ll not only be helping the ACS in its fight against cancer, you’ll put the cute little 17″ Gund teddy bear in the hands of a child fighting cancer. In February 2008, bears will be distributed in at least 40 hospitals across the country. With a donation of $250, they’ll also send a complimentary bear to your house (supplies are limited).
If you happen to have United Mileage Plus miles, you can donate those as well to help transport children with cancer and their families to receive treatment they need.
