JetBlue is Giving Away Free Trips to Volunteer in Houston and the Caribbean
JetBlue is giving away free flights to warm weather destinations in exchange for volunteering.
The airline will send 22 volunteers to Houston, Texas, Jamaica, or the Bahamas to participate in one of three service trips as part of November's "JetBlue For Good Month." The volunteers will work to create "pop-up libraries" in low-literacy communities, rebuild a community center, or give back to the environment at a coral nursery or dolphin sanctuary.
"We created JetBlue For Good Month to celebrate all the ways we give back year-round – and this year we're thrilled to bring our customers on board too," Icema Gibbs, JetBlue's director of corporate social responsibility, said in a statement.
The airline will cover all transportation, meal, and accommodation costs.
The three trips take place in late November or early December. Volunteers can enter for a chance to win at pop-up kiosks in New York City or Los Angeles through November 9. For those outside of the cities, the contest is also online.
In order to enter the contest, volunteers must fill out a short survey about their volunteer experiences and explain — in 300 characters or less — "why doing good is important to you."
Those selected to participate in a volunteer trip will be notified by November 20.
