Randy Petersen could use a smile right now.
Sure, he looks happy in his Twitter profile, but a huge storm severely damaged his home while he was travelling. Read about it in Randy’s own words:
Randy is known as the frequent flyer miles guru. Without Randy, we wouldn’t today be reading and participating in BoardingArea, Milepoint, FlyerTalk, or InsideFlyer.
Clearly, Randy loves points and miles. However, he loves helping others even more. Randy established the MilePoint FlyForward forum in which groups rally around causes including Doctors Without Borders, Susan G. Komen, Livestrong, and Kiva. Through Randy’s sponsorship, Milepoint and its members have been huge contributors to these causes. The Kiva group, in particular, has been incredible. Our group recently met our goal of making over $3 million dollars in micro-loans to enterprising individuals across the world. Our next goal is to exceed 1000 members (at the time of this writing we have 898 members). (There is now one more since I just joined the group!)
