Each year mAAgicSM flight offers children with life-threatening medical conditions an unforgettable, cost-free vacation experience in Orlando, Fla. The children and their families fly from around the globe to visit Central Florida’s attractions and stay at Give Kids The World Village®.
American employees and their families take part in the send-off celebrations at the children’s departure and connection cities and in Florida for arrival festivities at the Orlando airport, including a special party at Give Kids The World Village® on Saturday, Sept. 27.
Flights are made possible with generous mileage donations provided by the American Airlines Kids In Need program. All other costs including ticket taxes, lodging, rental cars, interpreters, etc. are funded by the Something mAAgic Foundation.
The Something mAAgic Foundation, is a non-profit organization comprised of volunteers who are current and former employees of American Airlines, Envoy and American Airlines Federal Credit Union. They support the missions of Give Kids The World Village® and other children's organizations to create magical memories for children with chronic or life-threatening medical conditions.
