OUR MISSION

At least once or twice a year, most of us are able to spend time with our loved ones - reconnect, share, laugh with grandparents, siblings, children, aunts & uncles, cousins, parents, and good friends. During holidays, special occasions or in times of sickness & need, we have the resources to visit the people who are most important to us.

Unfortunately, for many low wage workers often residing thousands upon thousands of miles from the people they love, its not so easy to see each other. 

When low income families are struggling to pay the rent and buy food, spending money on a plane ticket is simply an impossibility. Countless families spend too many years apart - unable to travel due to finances, which is often made more difficult by restrictive immigration policies.

Hello Vuelo uses crowdfunding & airline miles donations (minimum 10,000 miles) to purchase flights to reunite low income families. We connect families & friends who want to give with families & friends who are in need of support. 

"Vuelo" means flight in Spanish and so our project - Hello Vuelo - means a flight to say hello to loved ones and reunite. 

Make a Donation - reunite a family

I have not seen my mother since fleeing from Guinea and the threat of military violence in 2010. I want to see her before she dies so she can see that I have survived.
