FORT WORTH: American Airlines has partnered with Mastercard® to go the extra mile for Stand Up To Cancer this holiday season. Beginning today through December 12, American will reward AAdvantage® members with 25 miles for every dollar donated to Stand Up To Cancer through the Miles to Stand Up program. Mastercard will match cardholder donations of $25 or more made through this promotion up to a grand total of $1 million.
“The combination of American AAdvantage miles and Mastercard’s match is a powerful one that will drive real results for an initiative that is making breakthroughs in cancer research every day,” said Kurt Stache, senior vice president – Marketing, Loyalty and Sales for American. “Earlier this year, American donated $1 million to Stand Up To Cancer thanks to the kindness of our customers who have demonstrated their generosity and commitment to this cause again and again. We are thrilled to be working with Mastercard as the season of giving kicks off to raise an additional $2 million.”
“Teaming up with American Airlines for a cause we both hold close to our hearts is truly Priceless,” said Andres Siefken, executive vice president, North America marketing & communications for Mastercard. “We are proud to help our consumers do good and raise more funds to support Stand Up To Cancer’s life-saving cancer research.”
American is proud to collaborate with Stand Up To Cancer and advance their mission to raise funds to accelerate the pace of groundbreaking translational research that can get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives now.
“Collaboration is at the core of Stand Up To Cancer, and we are extraordinarily appreciative of American Airlines and Mastercard collaborating in this end of year campaign,” said Rusty Robertson, Co-Founder of Stand Up To Cancer. “We hope that everyone will take advantage of this promotion and make the holidays stand for more this season. Every dollar donated brings us one step closer to making all patients diagnosed with cancer into long-term survivors.” News Desk
