If you’re up for an adventure — the unplanned, no-idea-what’s-happening kind of adventure — listen up. JetBlue is looking to fly 100 “do-gooders” for free to what they’re calling “Destination Good” for a volunteer experience.

The catch? Those chosen for the trip won’t know where they’re going until the morning of departure on Tuesday, Nov. 27.

Here’s how it works: After answering a few questions, you will need to write about why volunteering and doing good is important to you. Up to 50 people and one guest each (up to 100 people total), will be chosen for the volunteer trip, which consists of three “memorable and immersive days dedicated to helping causes JetBlue believes in.”

Those chosen will participate in daily volunteer and service activities focusing on youth and education, community and the environment.

Service is built into everything we do at JetBlue,” Icema Gibbs, director corporate social responsibility, JetBlue, said in a press release. “We’re excited to offer our customers the chance to once again roll up their sleeves and join us in giving back. We chose Destination Good as this year’s location to reinforce that doing good can happen anywhere and anytime — be it in the air, on the ground, or even in your neighborhood.”

This is the second year JetBlue offered this trip for volunteers. Last year, winners were flown to Houston, Texas, as well as Jamaica and the Bahamas.

Think you have what it takes to win a spot on the trip? If you’d like a chance at heading to Destination Good, be sure to submit your entry by Friday, Oct. 26. If you are selected for the trip, you’ll be notified by Nov. 20. The flight will depart from New York’s JFK International Airport on Giving Tuesday, Nov. 27 and return on Nov. 30.

Good luck!
