The world is evolving and we’ve seen gaps in human relationships. With technological advancements, especially the extremely engaging social media people often find themselves distanced from their family and friends.
In an entirely distant world, McAfee is one company dreaming of a world that only has oneness and wishes for it to come true.
Well, talking about wishes, McAfee understands that making wishes come true holds a lot of untold significance. And so, a team of McAfee members decided to help make a few wishes come true.
They joined hands with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and granted some wishes.
Wondering What Make-a-wish Foundation Is?
This amazing non-profit organization raises funds and fulfils the wishes of critically ill children. The age requirement set by the foundation is 2.5 years to 18 years old.
The granting of wishes are focused on children who have been diagnosed with medical conditions that are life-threatening and thrives to see their happy faces.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation doesn’t just raise money, it also collects airline miles to grant travel wishes of the kids.
Every year the requirement of these miles have been noticed to be on an average of 2.8 billion miles (or tickets to 50 thousand round-trips) if considered nationally.
McAfee moved ahead with an idea of the initiative and added to the cause with care.

The Pandemic Upshot of Making Wishes
The world suffered and there was darkness. Medical staff were facing work pressure like never before, workspaces shifted from offices to homes, distances and masks came out of poetry and became a reality, and the world encountered great challenges with finances.
A non-profit like the Make-A-Wish Foundation saw some bad times too. It could not raise as many funds as it used to, and even if it did, the helplessness from the pandemic overpowered.

Airline Miles by Mcafee
Every mile collected would mean that the foundation is one step closer to fulfilling some ill child’s travel wish and it can be anywhere in the world.
McAfee got on board and started collecting these miles to donate to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. It wasn’t a surprise that members around the world were too inspired to add miles to the initiative, however, it was too surprising when they were finally done with counting the airline miles donated.
The donation was raised for a Make-A-Wish outlet in the Bay Area (San Francisco) and the total was, hoping you’re ready for it, 583 thousand airline miles.
