I'll tell you. It is really awesome to see how you all came together on this. I wish there would be a way to see the pictures for the lucky family(ies) on vacation. What a great story!!!!

Excellent way to make use of time that may otherwise go to waste!

james- you were skeptical that starwood want to participate in it. hopefully by next year i will have it on a bigger scale.

it is great PR for starwood and it is so good to give to a good cause. so everyone wins.

Barbra - are you saying that Starwood actually contributed days or weeks?

Mine were never taken and other than one brief call, no follow up. I'm not complaining, as long as Make A Wish is happy, I'm happy.

I think I am missing something in this thread. Did someone donate a timeshare week to Make a Wish for a wish family to use? I have a week that is going to expire and I will not use it. I wonder if I can donate it to MAW. I also volunteer for Make a Wish. It is a wonderful organization.

Ann-Marie - Several people have donated Staroptions. Barbra (pointsjunkie) is coordinating it - I am sure she will contact you or you can send her an email or pm by clicking on her name in any of the posts above.

What week is expiring? She is reserving TS's in Orlando using the Staroptions, but if you don't have Staroptions, I don't know if it will work.

I have a SFX week that is going to expire. I would have to book something, and then donate it I guess?
