1| Which nonprofit are you passionate about serving? Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF)
History: For 75 years, MAF has used aviation to help others. Each year the fleet flies over 1 million miles each year to the most remote regions in the world, bringing help, hope and healing to isolated people.
Pilots not only work with Christians but with other humanitarian agencies flying into remote hard to reach or isolated places to bring medical supplies or carry someone out for medical attention etc. MAF delivers doctors, nurses, medicine, vaccines, and supplies to places where medical care would otherwise not be available.

2| How long have you been supporting this cause? I grew up supporting MAF and am proud to have my children follow in our footsteps. It was important to my husband and I to instill and teach them to support others if they are able. We have made giving a family affair! All 7 children and their 8 children will keep the momentum going.
3| In one sentence, can you explain why you support and donate to MAF? It reaches way beyond what I can do on my own, it provides eternal value, is a perpetual gift!
