Omaha-based Jet Linx is again donating $10 for every #Dare2Tutu picture submitted
Jet Linx today announced its eighth consecutive year of support as the lead corporate sponsor for The Tutu Project, an initiative of The Carey Foundation.
In 2022, The Tutu Project celebrates 10 years in operation as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
Proceeds from the initiative provide everything from wigs and lymphedema sleeves to transportation, childcare, and counseling to the families impacted by a breast cancer diagnosis.
Since 2015, Jet Linx has supported The Tutu Project through the #Dare2Tutu challenge.
It matches $10 in exchange for an image of a person wearing a pink tutu.
The images are shared on the private aviation provider’s social media channels to raise awareness. There have been over 12,000 #Dare2Tutu images captured to date
The company also collects donations from clients and partners and raises funds through silent auctions of limited-edition Tutu prints at its 21 base locations nationwide.
Jet Linx has raised well over a quarter million dollars to date for the foundation, supporting breast cancer patients who need financial, emotional, and healing support not covered by insurance.
“Our partnership with Jet Linx is in its eighth year and means the world to Bob and me. That’s eight years of hard work, dedication, thousands of photos of employees in tutus, and incredibly generous donations,” said Linda Carey, co-founder of The Tutu Project by The Carey Foundation.
She adds, “Jet Linx has filled countless refrigerators with food and helped pay electric bills and mortgage payments, all of which ease the stress of managing a breast cancer diagnosis. We feel the love, and it strengthens our resolve to support the breast cancer community.”
“Supporting The Tutu Project for the last eight years has been one of our proudest accomplishments as an organization,” said Jamie Walker, President and CEO of Jet Linx.
