Orphan Helpers is a ministry founded by my parents that I've done more mission trips with than any other organization. It serves the physical, emotional, spiritual, vocational, & educational needs of those in and who have recently come out of government-run orphanages, juvenile detention centers, and children centers for protection in El Salvador & Honduras. We also do some work in Guatemala on a less frequent basis. Options are available for direct uses of points as well as donated uses of points with Orphan Helpers.
Points types that Orphan Helpers can use via donation/direct booking include:
1. Many credit card proprietary points types, such as American Express Membership Rewards, Brex points, Capital One Miles, Chase Ultimate Rewards, & Citi Thank You Rewards.
2. Most airline points types, excluding ANA (ANA has a family-only rule). Options include American Airlines, Aer Lingus, Aero Mexico, Alaska Airways, Asia Miles, British Airways, Delta, Iberia Airways, Spirit Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Singapore Airlines, United, & many more.
3. Most hotel points types, excluding Choice Hotels (Choice has a family-only rule)
For instance, there are points options for hotels in Guatemala, Honduras, or El Salvador with Best Western, Hilton, Hyatt, IHG, Marriott, Radisson Rewards Americas, & Wyndham (current or listed online as upcoming as of 10/4/22).
In the event that points donations to Orphan Helpers ever exceed the need, there will likely be an option in the future to submit your ministry for review to be placed on this page. At the moment, the Orphan Helpers need for points far exceed the supply of points.
