JetBlue is handing out free flights to their most charitable passengers. They will take 100 people on an all-expenses paid volunteer trip to a mystery destination.
As part of their “JetBlue for Good Month,” JetBlue announced its new initiative to promote traveling to do volunteer work (aka “voluntourism”) by flying a plane full of people to a mystery destination. On November 27, the brand will charter a flight of 50 people and their guests to the undisclosed location, dubbed “Destination Good,” where they will participate in daily volunteer and service activities for three nights. The volunteer efforts will focus on JetBlue For Good’s three main pillars: youth and education, community, and the environment.
The destination is being kept secret, but JetBlue spokesperson Amy Wang told Business Insider, “We chose a destination that we feel we can have a really big impact on, and a place where our volunteers could see a visible difference at the conclusion of the trip.”
The trip, which will run from November 27-30, leaves from New York’s JFK Airport, and while the trip from there is totally free, whoever scores a spot to go will have to find their way to and from New York in order to participate. If you’re already in NYC, then you just need to take the subway to the airport.
You can enter to win online. Entrants are also asked to write 150 words about why volunteering and giving back to the community is important to them. Check-in kiosks will also pop up at surprise locations in L.A. and N.Y.C. where passengers can fill out the questionnaire. Winners will be notified by November 20 so you have a week to clear your schedule.
