Dear Southwest Airlines Family,

Last year, thanks to the legendary generosity of the People from Southwest Airlines, we were able to help TeletonUSA raise funds to build and operate their FIRST REHABILITATION CENTER (CRIT) IN THE USA HERE IN TEXAS. 

On August 6th the groundbreaking ceremony took place in San Antonio, where the CRIT is expected to start helping Patients starting December 2014.

Why we continue supporting Teletón?

We chose “Fundación Teletón” because it fits perfectly with one of our strategic focus areas: Organizations that aid Families Facing Serious Illnesses. If you think about it, even our logos are very similar (their main element is a big heart). Teletón is a foundation that seeks to serve children with disabilities, providing comprehensive rehabilitation to promote their full development and integration into society. With the existing 21 Rehabilitation Centers, Teletón is the world's largest private system for children's rehabilitation with a capacity for more than 80,000 patients. The foundation is registered with the U.S. I.R.S as a 501c3 organization known as "Teleton Mexamerica", so your donations are Tax Deductible. Being so close to start flying to International destinations, mainly in Latin America, this is once again a great opportunity to show our Hispanic Community what LUV is all about and promote our Values and Culture within those markets that we are about to explore.

Why make your donations here and not directly to the foundation using their website?

While the main goal is the same (helping the kids), we would like all the proceeds from this and other fundraising activities to be donated as a single contribution from Southwest Airlines Employees. By doing this, SOUTHWEST COULD BE THE FIRST AND PROBABLY THE ONLY US CARRIER SUPPORTING THIS CAUSE IN 2013 just like it was in 2011 and 2012.

Thank you all in advance with all our "hearts" for your contributions.

Gustavo, Dana and our Team at SWA.
