THE AIR CHILD CHARITY PROGRAM
Air Child VA offers a sponsoring program to support the United Nations Children's Fund, UNICEF. In fact, the whole idea of Air Child VA is focused around this concept. UNICEF activities cover health care, education, and protection for children all over the world as well as a continuous struggle for children's rights.
How does it work?
Although one major purpose of our airline is to generate money for UNICEF (that is: as much money as possible!), we decided not to charge any of our members. Instead, we would like to invite everyone, especially companies of any description, to take part in this charity program. So how does that work? Basically, it's very easy. As a sponsoring partner, you will be paying a certain amount of money for every single flight that is completed (and reported) by Air Child pilots. This can be as low as 1 Cent or as much as 1 Euro per flight. It's all up to you. You tell us the base, we calculate the total. Every three months we will send you an e-mail, showing the total number of flights during this period and the total amount of money you will have to send to UNICEF.
Right, it's your own responsibility to transfer the money. This way you can be perfectly sure that the whole money goes to UNICEF and not a single cent stays with us. (Of course, we will give you all the necessary information on what to do and how.)
How much will it cost me?
"Now, how many flights would that be", you may ask, "and how can I make sure it's not going to cost me thousands of euros each month?" Simple, too: just set a limit. For example, you agree to pay 0.5 cent for each reported flight but limit it to a maximum of 5€ a month. That means, starting with flight number 1001, you'll not be charged anymore. If there's only 600 flights that month, you'll only pay 3€.
What will I get?
First of all, and regardless of how much money you give to UNICEF, you'll get the great feeling of helping children to have a better life and a future to look forward to. Apart from that (and apart from a receipt which will be sent directly by UNICEF) you'll get a dedicated place on our website showing your name (if you're a single person) or your company logo as well as a link to your own website (if you wish). Though not much, this is a good way to show to others that you care. And that's not the worst thing.
By the way: no one will get to see how much money you have actually accumulated and transferred. All we are publishing is the total of all sponsoring transfers every three months.
What if I have no money?
As long as you're a registered pilot you will still be a part of the concept. Just fly as much as you can and report your flights. The more flights you do the more money goes to UNICEF. It's that easy. So start your engines and be sure that you'll not only have fun in a virtual world but also contribute to something really useful in the real world.
