During the initiative, the program will donate loyalty points for each eligible purchase a program member makes to a range of children's charities. Participating consumers will also be entered into a draw for a grand prize of 50,000 loyalty points, as well as an additional 50,000 points for a charity of the winner's choice. The promotion will run until Sept. 6, to coincide with the back-to-school shopping season. The Air Miles program is operated by LoyaltyOne of Toronto.
