With the pandemic disrupting so much over the last 21 months and so much on pause, we’re grateful these worthy organizations have been able to persevere in the face of adversity. We’re proud that JetBlue’s crewmembers and customers are a part of the effort.”

Need some inspiration on charities to donate points to? Here are a few of JetBlue’s partner organizations:

Make-A-Wish® – JetBlue has been a longtime partner of Make-A-Wish®, providing travel in order to fulfill life-changing wishes for children battling critical illnesses. JetBlue crewmembers from across the airline’s network have been able to participate in seeing off and welcoming these children and their families, feeling the reward of being a part of these milestone moments. A wish brings hope to wish kids and their families and can be an important part of the healing process, helping kids deal with and even overcome their illness.

Miles4MigrantsJetBlue recently began partnering with Miles4Migrants to provide 35 million miles to fund over 2,000 airline tickets. Founded in 2016, Miles4Migrants uses donated frequent flyer miles, credit card points, vouchers and cash to help people impacted by war, persecution, or disaster reunite with loved ones and start new beginnings in safe homes. Since its inception, Miles4Migrants has flown more than 10,000 people from 78 countries of origin. Miles4Migrants has already flown over 6,700 Afghans — including many who assisted the U.S. military — more than any other country of origin.

The DREAM Project JetBlue has partnered with The Dominican Republic Education and Mentoring (DREAM) Project in the Dominican Republic since 2008. The DREAM Project seeks to ensure that all children and youth have equal opportunities to learn and develop their full potential through transformative education programs that combat the effects of poverty. Over the past 13 years, JetBlue and DREAM have collaborated on infrastructure repairs, painting, educational material donations, book donations, computer donations, and educational workshops. The last two years, the partnership has focused on literacy, through “My Very Own Library” book fairs held in community-based schools with a different theme for each fair.
