Plus, from March 2 to 8, Aeroplan will match all donations, up to 500,000 miles! Donate your miles online and help raise one million miles in just one short week! We will put your Aeroplan Miles to very good use. You will help us offset administrative expenses and travel costs, meaning we can put more resources to work for the planet. We minimize air travel as much as possible (and all our travel is offset by high quality carbon offsets), but where it is essential, your miles can help.

For example, Aeroplan Miles support our work with the Matawa First Nations in northern Ontario's Ring of Fire, a 5,000-square-kilometre region rich in both mineral deposits and biological diversity, and the focus of numerous proposed mining projects. Last year, we helped create the Youth Environmental Alliance (YEA!) — youth leaders from three of the nine First Nations communities in the region. Each remote community is accessible only by plane or winter roads.

These young people want to learn more about their rights and build their capacity to engage in land-use decision-making that affects their lives. YEA! elevates young voices, so their priorities, hopes, dreams and aspirations are heard.

Your Aeroplan Miles donation will support DSF's important work all across Canada. Get yours matched today!
