JetBlue Will Send You on a Free Trip to a Surprise Destination to Volunteer This November (Video)
JetBlue is offering a free trip to 50 travelers and their companions in exchange for volunteer work. Continuing its #CheckInForGood campaign from 2017, the airline will send the winners on an all-expenses-paid trip for three days as part of its November “JetBlue for Good Month.”
Last year, JetBlue offered a choice of destinations, but this year’s destination, “Destination Good,” will remain a secret until the morning of departure.
“We chose Destination Good as this year's location to reinforce that doing good can happen anywhere and anytime — be it in the air, on the ground, or even in your neighborhood,” Icema Gibbs, JetBlue's director of corporate social responsibility, said in a statement. Winners will be doing volunteer work focused on youth and education, community, and the environment.
While volunteer options are still being finalized, participants can expect to conduct work in each of the three areas mentioned above with opportunities that range from assistance in local schools to beach cleanups.
The flight to the surprise destination will depart on Giving Tuesday (November 27) from New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, returning November 30. Travelers must provide their own transportation to and from JFK, so it would be easier to be based in New York.
Applicants will need to fill out a short survey about their volunteer experience, and provide an explanation on why doing good is important to them. Winners will be notified by November 20.
