WestJet 'Christmas Miracle' brings joy to baggage claim

Published On: Dec 10 2013 10:32:24 AM EST

Holiday travel, to many families, means stress, lost luggage, and delayed flights. One airline, however, wanted to change that outlook by performing a Christmas miracle like no other.

Canadian airline, WestJet, started brainstorming in August by asking themselves the question, "What does giving look like when it's at it's best?"

With 175 WestJet volunteers, three airports, and Santa himself, they performed a 'Christmas Miracle' for more than 250 guests on two Calgary-bound flights.

They are taking this giving spirit one step further by asking customers to share the video online. If it reaches 200,000, they plan to donate flights to families in need so they can be together for the holidays. Last we checked, it was WELL over a million views.

Watch the video below and share some holiday cheer. What does real-time giving look like to you?
