JetBlue’s all you can fly offer used for a good cause: a human billboard for students in Zambia
There was lots of buzz generated when JetBlue Airways launched their all-you-can-fly offer for just $599. It was like a buffet for flying buffs, and they could do it all September, to any of JetBlue’s destination. But one individual stands apart. As CNN mentioned, “for Greg Krause, the pass is a chance to raise money for a charity close to his heart, an elementary school in Zambia that his parents created for orphaned children in a small village two hours from a main road.”
Krause plans to go to 24 cities, using about 45 different flights, to have both an enjoyable vacation and hopefully meet people who will donate to the school. He also will be documenting his trip on his Web site, 30daysonjetblue.com and you can follow him on Twitter too.
Kause auctioned himself on eBay and he’ll be wearing the the top bidding company’s t-shirts on all his travels! And the sponsorship was just over a thousand dollars – quite a good deal, I think.
What a brilliant idea! I’m thinking of donating to his cause, and would urge fellow aviation buffs to do so too! Also, from his website you can track where he is, and why not go say hello to him when he visits your city? And how about JetBlue chipping in, by sponsoring $599 for him too?
