Honoring breast cancer survivors across America, Send Me On Vacation Jets Pink on Jet Blue Airlines in October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. As the group showed the softer side of Jet Blue, "Jet Pink," crew members jumped on board the charity's bandwagon to earn airline tickets in exchange for volunteerism, a program Jet Blue supports to encourage employees to get involved in their communities and give back.

Marie Wiliams, Narda Middleton and Ashleigh Davis will lead the SMOV Ambassadorship program, encouraging Jet Blue employees to become ambassadors. All three crew members commented that they had been looking for a cause to get involved in that touched their heart and soul and empowering women.

“Jet Blue was amazing in every way," said founder Cathy Backus. "From checking in, to the exceptional flight crews, to claiming baggage, every employee was so excited to be part of the tour.”

The group wore t-shirts that said Jet Blue-Jet Pink, catching the interest of both crew members and passengers. Over 1.9 million followers were tracking the eight-day journey across America on social media.
