Jet Blue Gives Away Flights to Do-Gooders

I love Jet Blue.

The month of November is the JetBlue For Good Month. To commemorate JetBlue’s continued commitment to giving back and doing good, the carrier is adding a new mystery destination to its network this November, dubbed, “Destination Good.” From October 16 through October 26, those who are keen on joining JetBlue for a volunteer experience can #CheckInForGoodOnline at https://jetbluecheckinforgood.com or at JetBlue’s pop-up kiosks in surprise locations in Los Angeles and New York City to enter for a chance to partake in the service trip.

This will be a 4-day service trip to Destination Good, scheduled to depart on Giving Tuesday, November 27, from New York’s JFK International Airport. To up the fun factor, contest winners will not know where they are headed until the morning of November 27. JetBlue will be picking up to 50 do-gooders to volunteer alongside some of JetBlue’s crewmembers and non-profit partners. Successful contest entrants will be notified by November 20, 2018. The chosen do-gooders can each bring a guest along.

During their stay in Destination Good, all participants will engage in daily volunteer and service activities that emphasize on the three pillars of the JetBlue For Good platform: (i) youth and education; (ii) community, and (iii) the environment.

No purchase is necessary for one to enter the Destination Good contest. Keep in mind the contest is open only to legal residents of the 50 U.S. states and D.C. who are 18-years-old or older and have a valid passport.

Those who enter the contest are required to answer philanthropic-related questions and their answers will be judged to determine who the winners will be. Contest entrants have to fill out a short questionnaire about what ‘Good’ they have to declare. For starters, JetBlue is looking for passionate souls who enjoy philanthropy and volunteering – regardless if one is a newbie or experienced volunteer.

JetBlue For Good Encourages Customers and Crewmembers

Y’all know I stan for JetBlue. Their JetBlue for Good is another reason why.

The company is celebrating November as Philanthropy Month, recognizing those who actively volunteer in their communities. To kick off this month of giving, JetBlue is launching a contest inviting customers and crewmembers to join the JetBlue For Good Crew. Volunteers who work to make their communities a better place can enter at JetBlueForGood.com for a chance to win $1,000 for the charity of their choice.

Customers and crewmembers can enter by uploading a photo or video highlighting their community service and sharing their volunteer efforts using #JetBlueForGood. The contest begins today, November 1st. Winners, one customer and one crewmember, will be selected daily until November 30, 2016.

Since 2011, JetBlue crewmembers have volunteered more than 500,000 hours of service. To honor JetBlue’s Philanthropy Month efforts, the airline is encouraging customers and even more crewmembers to participate in acts of service.

Jet Blue #StandsWithOrlando

Here’s one more reason to join me in loving Jet Blue.

Today the company announced it will offer immediate family and domestic partners of Orlando shooting victims free seats on available flights to and from Orlando.

On the airline’s blog, Out of the Blue, Jet Blue officials wrote of their close ties to the city and of their sorrow as details of the shooting rampage have continued to emerge. In all, 49 were killed and more than 50 injured in the worst mass shooting in U.S. history:

Like many of you, we continue to watch reports of the Orlando nightclub shooting with great sadness. Our thoughts are with the victims and their loved ones.

This weekend’s events are felt by all of our 19,000 crewmembers, many of whom live in, work from and travel through Orlando – one of our focus cities – at Orlando International Airport, our Orlando Support Center and JetBlue University.

We want to do our part to help the victims of this tragedy, as well as support the Orlando community through this difficult time.

Jet Blue will offer immediate family and domestic partners of victims who were killed or injured in the shooting free seats on flights to or from Orlando. Those needing assistance with arrangements should call 1-800-JETBLUE (538-2583) for details.

In addition, the airline instituted a fee waiver for customers traveling to or from Orlando who need to make last-minute changes to their travel plans.

The airline also is offering special resources to employees who have been affected by the event. Crewmembers are encouraged to check the company’s internal website for more details.

Lastly, JetBlue officials said they will make a charitable contribution to support the victims and their families.

Not surprising, the company has gone above and beyond to do its part and demonstrate yet again why they lead in the space as far as CSR is concerned.

Brand Tweets: Jet Blue

Happy Monday, folks! In this pre-birthday edition of, “Brand Tweets,” I feature one of my favorite brands, Jet Blue. Recently, they kept me quite entertained as I waited for my flight to Chicago which was delayed due to the arrival of the Pope. Oh, and then there was Boyz II Men…

Apparently, Jet Blue does concerts out of JFK’s Terminal 5. Who knew?!

Love.

Valentine’s Day 2015 came and went in a blink but the memories of it will last all year for me. I started the day with a workout at Crunch gym with….wait for it…Tae Bo creator and superstar Billy Blanks:

Wax on. Wax off.

I then ran into a Bullmastiff which weighed a mere 170 pounds:

Woof.

And got the cutest little bouquet of flowers:

And spent the rest of the day with an eight year old superstar:

Bae.

It was such a love-filled day. To top it all off, I got plenty of chuckles from (and was super impressed by) Jet Blue’s multi-faceted, “Love is in the Air,” campaign. Check out the video below.

All in all, it was a super-perfect day. Here’s to LOVE.
