You can donate miles to charity? I had no idea

Or ... points.com and exchange them for an airline/hotel you use. What charity needs airline miles? Unless they use the miles to fly people places.

I'll give you 0.25 ETH for then.

Magazines.

Hey team need some help - I’ve flown United since I was a child, and naturally I’ve flown with them through and through my consulting career. I just flew on Delta for the first time and it was so much nicer than what I’ve been used to. What’s loyalty like here at Delta - and is it worth status matching and becoming Delta loyal? NYC based if that makes any difference. TIA!!

Does anyone at the Junior or mid-level here not aspire to be a creative director? I was in a conversation with some coworkers today about the advertising career ladder.
