“Fly it Forward” and make the Holiday Season a little brighter for others


Many people are traveling this week to visit friends and family. While enjoying time with loved ones, we encourage all to take a moment and find ways to “Fly it Forward” and make the Holiday Season a little brighter for others.

Our mission is to Inspire Humanity both in the ground and on the ground. Each day, our 15,000 crewmembers provide award-winning customer service (exemplified by our nine consecutive JD Power Award). Our crewmembers also bring a little humanity to the various communities we live in and serve.

During the season of gratitude, we’d like to thank our crewmembers for their volunteer work. In 2013, more than 975 crewmembers volunteered a total of 58,832 hours to over 851 charities and non-profits throughout the U.S. Caribbean and Latin America. These dedicated crewmembers truly inspire others to take positive action to change their local communities.

Our crewmembers volunteer for a variety of causes including Shane Bennett who coaches his neighborhood junior football team in New York , Sandee Brown who volunteers with the Special Olympics in Los Angeles, Donnie Todd who volunteers with the Jimmy Fund in Boston and Christian Brice who regularly works with the Cancer Society of the Bahamas, to name a few. Also, many stations volunteer as teams, including our Dallas/Fort Worth team which supports the Make a Wish foundation. They see service as an opportunity to improve team work and service excellence.

How do you chip in and make a difference?  Tweet @JetBlue and tell us what organizations and causes are important to you using #IChipInFor. You could win $1,000 for the charity of your choice. (Terms and conditions apply)

Want to volunteer or give and not sure where to go? There are a variety of causes in need of support this Holiday season. During the season of giving, TrueBlue members can donate points to more than two million causes and charities. Points will be converted to cash to benefit the non-profit of your choice. True Giving, a unique enhancement to the airline’s TrueBlue customer loyalty program, provides members with an alternate way to use their points. Customers now have the choice to redeem their points for future travel or donate them to benefit others. Points can be donated locally or globally to millions of causes at Truegiving.jetblue.com.
