'Flying It Forward': JetBlue Is Turning an Airline Ticket Into a Chain Letter of Human Goodness
Humanitarian Initiative Awards Flights to Deserving Individuals
Oct 30, 2014
JetBlue is putting its own slant on the concept of "paying it forward." In a social-media-driven initiative called "Flying it Forward," the airline started by awarding one free JetBlue ticket to a deserving individual involved in humanitarian efforts, then let that person select another deserving recipient of a free ticket, and so on and so on.
The first Flying It Forward ticket recipients, shown in this video by agency Mullen, include Tameka Lawson, who represented her Chicago non-profit I-Grow at a UN conference in New York, and Louis Elneus, who helped build the first public library in his home country of Haiti.
