Community helps Make-A-Wish

BOISE, Idaho- KBOI 2News partnered up with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Idaho and put on a "Wishes in Flight" telethon.

The goal was to raise one million airlines miles to help send Make-A-Wish kids and their families on a vacation.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Idaho grants 90 wishes every year to children with life threatening illnesses, and 70% of those wishes involve travel.

Folks in community really pulled together and we doubled our goal... raising more than 2 million airline miles. Thank you to everyone for your support!

You can still help! Make-A-Wish is always looking for volunteers and donations, including those airlines miles. Call 208-345-9474, visit or stop by the office located at 4355 Emerald Street in Boise.
