For a sixth consecutive year, jet card membership and management company Jet Linx will continue its October fundraising efforts for the Tutu Project. The Tutu Project and its #Dare2Tutu campaign provide financial assistance to breast cancer patients and their families to pay for expenses not covered by insurance, including groceries, utility bills, and transportation. Since it began its partnership with the nonprofit in 2015, Omaha, Nebraska-based Jet Linx has raised more than $180,000 for the organization.
“We recognize that this year's fundraising efforts are more important than ever before, given the inevitable stress and concern created by the Covid-19 pandemic for immunocompromised populations, and we are dedicated to encouraging as many people as we can to participate in the #Dare2Tutu campaign throughout October,” said Jet Linx president and CEO Jamie Walker.
During the month, Jet Linx will donate $10 for every photo submitted of people wearing tutus. Jet Linx also is hosting a silent auction at the 19 locations it serves for a photo of Tutu Project founder Bob Carey alongside a business jet, as well as offering to match up to $15,000 in direct donations made to the organization through a dedicated Jet Linx fundraising site.
