You can fly free in November, if you like surprises. JetBlue plans to fly a plane-load of people to an unknown destination Nov. 27 to volunteer for an unknown cause for three days, USA Today reports. Anyone over 18 can apply here by Oct. 26 if they're willing to answer questions about their philanthropic interests, per People. A sample question: "If volunteer hours were stored in a karma bank, how big would your account be?" JetBlue is saying little else, but participants will leave from JFK Airport in New York and volunteer in three areas championed by JetBlue for Good: the environment, community, and youth and education.
