To our partners, donors and friends who made this year’s Americares Airlift Benefit so memorable — our sincerest thanks. On Saturday, we celebrated Americares life-changing work, made possible only by support from friends like you. We also wished our Airlift passengers a safe trip to the Dominican Republic, where they saw firsthand how Americares is improving the health of families and communities — truly helping people reach their full potential.
Because of your generosity, we were able to raise more than $2.8 million, which will help make health possible for countless individuals in the U.S. and around the world.
Americares is committed to saving lives and improving the health of people affected by poverty and disaster. We are grateful for your partnership and hope to see you at next year’s event. The 2020 Airlift Benefit will feature an Airlift to Honduras, where Americares reaches dozens of local health providers — including hospitals and local health centers — and provided nearly $15 million in aid last year.
