You can help to fulfil a dream
Dreams2live4 helps make dreams come true for patients who are living with metastatic cancer. Metastatic means any cancer which has spread.
Living with metastatic cancer can be an overwhelming and gruelling battle. Dreams2live4 empowers these patients to dream and find purpose again. It is the only programme of its type in Australia. Each year we work with more than 100 patients and their families.
How the partnership formed...
Steve Hui (iFLYflat CEO) heard Pat O’Sullivan (Dreams2live4 board member) speak at an event where he mentioned Dreams2live4, he reached out. iFLYflat would use points to book the dreams flights, reducing the cash burden on the charity and enable it to fulfil more dream with their limited charity dollars.
The synergies are iFLYflat would enable contributions/donations from the people/companies who have points, to use them to make a direct difference to help a Dreams2live4 patient.
Using points this way maintains the full value of the points. Up to now, all other avenues for donating points significantly reduces the value.
Points were designed to be used for flying. We help our dreamers to fly above their treatment.
How to help
It's simple, as a supporter
Support a dreamer take flight with your Virgin Velocity (or credit card points which can be transferred to Virgin Velocity points).
How many points to help:
Popular destinations to give an example of points needed:

Need to know:
- Various credit reward cards can transfer points into Virgin: AMEX, Citibank, Westpac, CBA, NAB, ANZ etc
- AMEX can transfer points 1:1, the other banks are normally 2:1 (ie: 2 Westpac points = 1 Velocity point)
- The Virgin Velocity terms & conditions allow for bookings to be made in anyone's name with your points (without payment) - this is 100% within the rules.
- Donors would give iFLYflat authority to access their Virgin account purely for booking these flights to the extent of the donation. (**see t&c note below)
- This process maintains the true value of the points unlike other points donations which are converted into cash at a low conversion rate.
- The points remain in your account at all times until the flight is booked. They are not transferred.
