Mission: 

“Angel Flight Mid-Atlantic (AFMA) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization utilizing over 550 volunteer pilots to transport patients to specialized medical care. We are a coordinating service matching volunteer pilots willing to donate their time and aircraft to the individuals in need.”

Why I choose this group:

 

There are a couple of things that have been in the news lately – air travel and healthcare – so I thought this was pretty topical. Jimmy Kimmel is trending with the story of his newborn son and his statements that money shouldn’t effect care. I completely agree and I know most people do, it’s just hard to navigate the politics of making that happen. I know we can all feel powerless and unable to help sometimes. And that’s why I picked Angel Flight MA – it’s about people sharing their skills to help just a little bit. These pilots volunteer their time to get people to the care they need. It’s everyday people sharing their skills to make a big impact in someone else’s life.

We all have unique skills that we can use to make our communities better. These pilots are taking action with their skills and that is so inspiring to me. You don’t have to be a doctor or a lawyer to help. Everyone can contribute.
