We can applaud the heroes, and now we can also nominate them for a much-needed trip out of town.
Maybe you’ve been sick and you’ve had someone put their life on the line to nurse you back to health. Perhaps you have a family member that’s been working tirelessly to the point that their protective wear etches an outline onto their skin by the end of each day. Maybe you have a family member working on the front lines and you want them to visit you as soon as this is all over. Whatever the case, you now have a perfect way to thank them.
JetBlue has started the ‘Healthcare Hero’ initiative where 100,000 healthcare workers will be given roundtrip flight certificates for two to any of JetBlue’s destinations.
“JetBlue’s mission of inspiring humanity is stronger now more than ever,” said Joanna Geraghty, president and chief operating officer of JetBlue, in a press release. “We applaud the healthcare workers who are helping us get through this challenging time and inspiring humanity along the way.”
Out of the tickets, 90,000 will be awarded through nominations by customers and at least 10,000 pairs of those tickets will be given to NYC public healthcare workers.
To nominate a healthcare worker you can submit their name, hometown, and a sweet, little description of the nominee on their Healthcare Hero website by May 15. The certificates will be valid indefinitely.
Remember, pharmacists, public health administrators, therapists, social workers, along with doctors and nurses, all count as healthcare workers.
“Some heroes wear capes. A lot of ours wear scrubs. Together, we can make them fly,” the campaign site reads.
This is open to all legal residents of 48 contiguous U.S., DC, & PR, 16 or older (Nominators), 18 or older (Nominees). Recipient pays flight taxes & fees.
