Orrrrrr you can donate your points to Rainbow Railroad which saves lives of LGBT people by helping them escape countries where they are subject to death and imprisonment- your call! 😇

Tons of great causes out there. Ironically, this is the summer reading book- https://m.harpercollins.com/9780062694317/building-a-bridge Look, I wasn't expecting anything. Some on here have discussed an interest in donating points to charity before so I wanted to share this opportunity. If it's not your thing, whatever, just move on. For the record, it is one of the most liberal Catholic church in the area.

Couldn't they be happy spreading their churchy stuff in the US? Do they need to go abroad too? C'mon, people need real things to improve their lives, not some bologna about being saved in the afterlife, which, by the way, if nothing is done, will be in the very immediate future for a large number of them. Donate to UNICEF!

I've been on several service trips myself and think they are more for the benefit of the attendee than the receiver.

Lmfao. Religion is savage AF!

So, if you post a burner, I'll just forward you the weekly newsletter that I received. In the blurb, it says to contact someone. When I clicked it, it was a gmail and I figured that you guys would think that I was sketchy if I did that. This is the text that I have:

Frequent Flier Miles Needed Delegations from Holy Trinity will be representing Holy Trinity in El Salvador, Haiti and at the US-Mexico border in the coming year. To make these trips more available to parishioners, we are seeking frequent flyer miles or other support for our travelers. Please contact Margie Legowski for details!

Dd1- at this moment, the only info is what I have posted above. I have, however, done multiple service trips to Honduras and I loved them. I'm guessing some kind of Catholic humanitarian service trip where they build schools or something like that.

I can also post her email and you can reach out to her directly if you'd like

Dd1- but I do know that this church is legit. I am pretty sure that it is where the Kennedys went to Mass back in the day. Also, my marriage certificate is housed there 🙌🏻

This would not be my first choice of where to donate the points, but wanted to help spread the word
