United Airlines is encouraging donations to China earthquake relief efforts by offering 500 frequent-flier miles to Mileage Plus members who
contribute at least $50.
Here’s how it works: Just make an online contribution of $50
or more to the American

will distribute a maximum of 5 million miles on a first-come, first-served
