Platinum Sponsor: American Airlines

Wind Enterprises is proud to partner with American Airlines for the 2012 calendar year and beyond. American Airlines flies to 250 cities and 40 countries world-wide.


American Airlines – The Beginning:
On the morning of April 15, 1926, a young aviator named Charles A. Lindbergh stowed a bag of mail in his little DH-4 biplane and took off from Chicago for St. Louis. Later that day, he and two other pilots flew three plane loads of mail from St. Louis to Chicago.

At the time, Lindbergh was chief pilot of Robertson Aircraft Corporation of Missouri, which was the second aviation company to hold a U.S. airmail contract. It was one of scores of companies that eventually consolidated to form the modern-day American Airlines.

The consolidation began in 1929, when The Aviation Corporation was formed to acquire young aviation companies, including Robertson. In 1930, The Aviation Corporation’s airline subsidiaries were incorporated into American Airways, Inc. In 1934, American Airways became American Airlines, Inc.

Cork Brigade helps Wind Foundation for Women

Cork Brigade helps Wind Foundation for Women provide scholarships for older women studying for non-traditional jobs

Partnering with TerraCycle, goal is a million corks in a year

Linda Wind was looking for unique ways to fund Wind Foundation for Women, a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization she recently founded to provide academic scholarships and mentoring for women in non-traditional job fields. The dynamic founder of Wind Enterprises and the annual Possible Woman Conferences wanted to combine doing good with going green.

“I learned that collecting ‘waste’ materials can raise funds and help the environment,” says Wind. “Why not try to collect a million corks in a year? That would make a statement and help fund our scholarships and mentoring!”

Wind is partnering with TerraCycle, a manufacturer of some 50 eco-friendly products sold at major retailers like Walmart and Target. TerraCycle also runs national collection programs that pay non-profits to collect used packaging. In Dallas, Wind Foundation advisor Cheryl Jensen, a leadership consultant and executive coach, has recruited 50+ restaurants and wine bars to participate in the Cork Brigade.

Anyone can participate – call Linda Wind to find out how to sign up to ‘get paid for trash.’ It’s really easy and takes about two minutes to get registered. Restaurants and other establishments should contact Linda at 972-724-3646, 770-856-4767 or

Scholarships funded by the Cork Brigade will be presented at the next Possible Woman Conference, scheduled for April 27, 2011 in Atlanta.
