Since 2007, Jetstar has partnered with World Vision Australia to help raise more than $10.8 million to support our projects in Asia and in Indigenous Australian communities. Staff are engaged through in-flight fundraising and volunteering opportunities in some of the communities Jetstar is helping to support.
Through our StarKids partnership, millions of Australians travelling with Jetstar each year have the opportunity to help change lives through the simple act of donating spare change on a flight or a couple of dollars when booking.
Impact stories are shared in Jetstar’s in-flight magazine each month – helping to inspire customers and encourage them to get involved.
After working hard to build a successful business, Ridley Bell, founder of Mountain Blue Farms in Lismore NSW, wanted to give something back. Thanks to the support of Mountain Blue and their customers, communities in northern Uganda have new health clinics and teacher housing, as well as improved access to clean water and sanitation in local schools. In addition, during blueberry season, five cents from every punnet of Mountain Blue’s Eureka Blueberries sold exclusively through Coles Supermarkets goes towards World Vision projects that help farming families around the world to restore the environment and increase their incomes.
After building up his business from a one-van operation to a nationwide franchise, Platinum Electricians founder Josh Nicholls came up with a simple idea to pay it forward: for every Platinum Electricians van on the road, a child in need is sponsored. One Van One Child also engages staff and franchisees in field trips so they can see firsthand the impact they’re having on their sponsored children and communities in Zambia and Sri Lanka.Through the Platinum Foundation, Platinum Electricians has also supported water and sanitation projects and health and nutrition training.
