EL AL ISRAEL AIRLINES DONATES THOUSANDS OF MATMID FREQUENT FLYER POINTS TO TAGLIT/BIRTHRIGHT
AS PART OF AIRLINES CHARITABLE “GLOBALY” PROGRAM
NEW YORK – March 4, 2014 – EL AL Israel Airlines is proud to be the official carrier of Taglit-Birthright and include the organization in the airline’s GlobaLY program, which donates Matmid frequent flyer points to three charitable organizations in Israel: Taglit-Birthright, The Lone Soldier and Make-A-Wish Israel.
In the past month, EL AL has donated enough points to Taglit-Birthright, enabling 125 young people between the ages of 18 and 26 to have a life changing experience in Israel. With the Matmid/GlobaLY program, EL AL donates points whenever a Matmid/GlobaLY club member travels on EL AL. There is no cost to the member, either points or money.
Anyone who wants to become a Matmid frequent flyer/GlobaLY member and have EL AL donate points can register for free on the EL AL USA Facebook page (EL AL Israel Airlines USA).
In the past three years, EL AL has carried more than 50,000 Birthright participants, of which 90 percent are from North America. Taglit-Birthright offers 10 day trips to Israel so participants can strengthen their bond with the land and people of Israel.
