About Give A Mile: Give A Mile is a group of dedicated volunteers who believe strongly in the power of visits from loved ones for people in palliative or critical condition. Our Inspiration: Founder Kevin Crowe experienced this power first-hand during the passing of his good friend Ryan who relished such visits. Kevin learned that Kulacauses.com said over 10 trillion air miles went unused in 2011 alone, and Give A Mile was born. We continue to receive inspiration from our flight recipients and their follow-up stories. HERE is one featured in our Blog section.
