To promote the values of the Holy month of Ramadan, Etihad Guest, the award-winning loyalty program of Etihad Airways, is working with selected program partners in encouraging its members to donate Etihad Guest Miles to a number of local and international causes, to support those in need, and help make a difference and improve the lives of people less fortunate.
To assist members
wishing to donate their miles to support a worthy cause, a special landing page
has been established on the Etihad Guest website, which can be easily accessed
by going to: http://www.etihadguest.com/donate
A number of local and
international charitable causes are listed on this page, including the Emirates
Red Crescent, which is providing Iftar meals to the needy in the UAE during Ramadan
for as little as 550 Etihad Guest Miles.
The UAE Zakat Fund is
also included, and all Etihad Guest Miles donated by members to this fund will
be used to support charities and humanitarian activities in the UAE and around
This special campaign is also supported by a range of
special Partner offers, enabling members to earn Etihad Guest Miles during the Ramadan
and Eid period; including Sarky Jewellery, Hertz car rentals, gift purchases
on Gilt.com, as well as hotel accommodation at Viceroy, Marriott and Rotana
properties, plus many more.
Yasser Al Yousuf,
Managing Director, Etihad Guest, said: We are delighted to take this
opportunity of working closely with selected partners to provide our members
with great offers and the opportunity to embrace the spirit of giving at this
very special time.
“Humanitarian donations have proved to be incredibly popular
with our members in the past, who are keen to contribute and provide much
needed support and to benefit those in need.”
Etihad Guest members can also choose to redeem their
miles for Eid gifts for their loved ones, with thousands of products and gift
items being available on the Etihad Guest online Reward Shop.
