Giveaway: 2 Roundtrip Tickets to Anywhere with JetBlue

Hello, my beautiful people! Right now, just minutes before I started to write this blog post, I took a look at Jetblue's "A Taste of Home" video and couldn't hold back my tears. (See video, and giveaway information below). mercedes sanchez santo domingo

I try to visit the Dominican Republic at least once a year. Not just because of its beautiful beaches and culture, but because how important it is for me to continue traditions and celebrate life with my family and relatives. I pray that one day I could do the same with my own children.

"A Taste of Home" 

In November, JetBlue invited a group of families of Dominican heritage to meet for dinner and a discussion about Dominican culture at La Casa del Mofongo, a restaurant in Washington Heights in NYC.

"The tickets are an opportunity because you know how hard it is for a big family to travel."

At the end of what was supposed to be a complimentary dinner, they were handed what appeared at first to be a bill. But, inside they discovered free roundtrip tickets to the Dominican Republic. While 28 people at the dinner got the tickets, JetBlue followed The Delgadillo family as they visited Santo Domingo for a joyful family reunion. Watch the video here, or below.

"We are hard working people and coming back to our country is like a dream come true."

Upon watching the video and seeing how this family reunited with their grandmother, I thought about my own maternal grandmother. She's no longer with us, but my cousins, sisters, and I have so many wonderful memories of visiting San Francisco de Macoris as kids. Life was much simpler back then.

Now a days I spend more time in Bani and Santo Domingo when I visit the Dominican Republic, but San Francisco de Macoris feels like home too. I also want to visit other areas. It's a small island, but there's so much to see!

JetBlue recognizes the importance of bringing people home, particularly within the Dominican community.
