“Going the extra mile” isn’t an event – it’s a lifestyle. And giving away AIR MILES® is not recognizing one good deed but a reward for a lifetime of serving others. StorageMart storage centre gave away 93,000 AIR MILES last week through a social media contest to four Canadians who looked out for others’ needs first.
Each winner was awarded 20,000 AIR MILES, with nominators receiving free airfare as well. At the contest’s end, 93,000 miles were given away by StorageMart and with the average Canadian airfare at more than $500 in 2016, those AIR MILES will have a great impact on each family.
Paola Migliozzi was astonished when she found out she had been awarded 20,000 AIR MILES. The mother of two children with autism not only works tirelessly for her children but is a staunch advocate for autism research.
Daniel Kasznia will probably use his free flights to come back home. He’s been sorely missed by his Canadian neighbours after taking a job in Dubai, where he continues to be a great neighbour, just like he is at home.
“You have no idea what this is going to mean to my daughter. We are going to use the miles toward a trip to visit one of her very best friends in Winnipeg who also suffers from a rare condition,” said Jenn Morrison. Her daughter struggles with a rare blood disease that requires nightly infusions.
John Tonner is a musician by vocation but always looking for ways to help the disadvantaged in downtown Edmonton. Whether he’s helping the local children’s hospital or reaching into his own pocket to give, John inspires those around him.
“People who put service over self make the difference in the places we call home and StorageMart is thrilled to be able to recognize these community heroes,” said Cris Burnam, President of StorageMart storage centre.
