March 13, 2018
Flight Attendants helping Flight Attendants. The Disaster Relief Fund provides a means for AFA Members to assist other Members and retirees who have suffered significant damage and/or relocation as a result of a disaster. Since its beginning in the fall of 2001, the AFA Disaster Relief Fund has provided support in the aftermath of many large-scale disasters including the September 11th terrorist attacks, Hurricane Katrina, Harvey, Irma and other natural and/or man-made disasters.
This month Amazon is hosting a special promotion where your purchases earn 3x the impact! That’s right! Now through March 31, Amazon is tripling the donation rate on your first smile.amazon.com purchase. Go to smile.amazon.com/ch/52-2341209 to make your Amazon purchases and Amazon automatically donates a portion to the Association of Flight Attendants - Disaster Relief Fund.
Flight Attendants may also contribute online and 100% of the funds contributions will go directly to impacted Flight Attendants in the form of cash assistance. The AFA Disaster Relief Fund is a 501(c)(3) organization separate from AFA's operating funds. Donations to the AFA Disaster Relief Fund are tax deductible.
