Win Trips to Do Good with JetBlue

Win Trips to Do Good with JetBlue

JetBlue is getting ready to celebrate a month of kindness and good in November with JetBlue For Good Month. Throughout this month of philanthropy and giving, JetBlue is asking customers to #CheckInForGood and enter to win a complimentary trip to volunteer with some of the airline’s non-profit partners. The winners will participate in trips focusing on the three pillars of the JetBlue For Good platform: youth and education, community and the environment.

JetBlue mock check-in kiosks will pop up in surprise locations in New York City and Los Angeles from November 2-9, 2017. To enter, entrants can fill out a short questionnaire about what “good” they have to declare at one of the JetBlue kiosks, or online at jetbluecheckinforgood.com through November 9. Based on individual responses, entrants will be matched to causes aligning with JetBlue For Good’s three key pillars – youth and education, community, and the environment–and placed on “standby” for an opportunity to win a seat on one of the following volunteer trips departing around #GivingTuesday, the international day of giving kicking off the holiday season:

  • #CheckInForGood to Help Houston Public Libraries, Nov. 27-29, 2017
    Like many in Texas, the Houston Public Library (HPL) is still reeling from the impact of Hurricane Harvey. Seven branches remain closed due to storm damage, leaving these communities without access to the libraries’ vital programs, services and books resources.

    Building on JetBlue’s signature Soar with Reading literacy program, designed to inspire and encourage kids’ imaginations to take flight through reading, volunteers on this trip will check in with elementary schools in communities which have been impacted by Harvey, have low literacy rates and where their libraries are still closed. While the Mobile Express, HPL’s library-on-wheels hits the road to distribute free books, volunteers will help operate “pop-up” libraries and host reading events, with books donated in partnership with Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing. JetBlue will also bring its innovative free book vending, powered by IVS, to Houston to distribute 25,000 children’s books throughout the remainder of the year.

  • #CheckInForGood to Help the Sandals Foundation’s Local Caribbean Community Efforts- Jamaica, Nov. 27-29, 2017The Sandals Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Sandals and Beaches Resorts, is committed to improving the lives of its local communities, supporting schools, facilities and centers across eight islands in the Caribbean.

    The Eltham Community Centre serves the rural area surrounding Ocho Rios region. Here, neighbors can gather for recreational activities and informative workshops, receive mentorship and gain access to free mental and dental care as well as spay and neuter services for animal clinics. Volunteers on this trip will help paint, renovate and restore The Centre with upgrades to ensure it can continue to be a safe, healthy and inspiring space for both the young and elderly in the community.

  • #CheckInForGood to Help Atlantis Blue Project Foundation – Bahamas, Dec. 6-8, 2017
    The Bahamas is home to one of the largest coral reefs in the world. Its sustainability is vital to the marine ecosystem as reefs provide food and shelter for a vast array of marine life in addition to protecting shorelines and preserving beaches.

    Led by marine ecologist Dr. Craig Dahlgren of the Atlantis Blue Project Foundation, an organization developing innovative ways to protect Bahamian waters and wildlife, volunteers on this trip will participate in an ongoing coral nursery project on Paradise Island and assist with harvesting and out-planting coral, in addition to activities at the dolphin sanctuary.
