If you’ve ever flown Norwegian, you’ve probably been presented with numerous opportunities to donate to UNICEF — from the booking website to the in-flight entertainment system, the airline’s desire to further humanitarian aid efforts is clear.

In addition to collecting donations during flights, the carrier also partners with UNICEF on an annual “fill-a-plane” campaign — as I’ve heard several employees proudly state, it’s Norwegian’s “most important flight of the year.”

Following a successful mission to Djibouti in 2017, on board a 787-9 Dreamliner, this year’s destination of choice is Chad, a landlocked country smack dab in the middle of Africa. The airline needs your help accomplishing its funding goal, however, and it’s offering up a pretty fantastic giveaway to help sweeten the deal.

As outlined in a video interview with TPG, Norwegian is offering five pairs of round-trip Premium-class tickets. You’ll need to enter before midnight on October 10 in order to qualify. Head to UNICEF’s site for details on how to enter.

As UNICEF USA CEO Caryl Stern states in TPG‘s interview above, more than half of Chad’s population is under the age of 18, making the country’s citizens especially important to the organization’s mission. As she explains, “there are about two-and-a-half million kids in the country who are in dire need of support right now.”

Norwegian’s mission to Chad is taking place next week on board a brand-new Boeing 737 MAX in UNICEF livery, and I’ll be coming along. We’ll be loading up the plane’s cargo compartment and the cabin itself with critical aid, ranging from classroom supplies to water purification tablets.

TPG has made a $10,000 donation to UNICEF’s fill-a-plane campaign, but there’s far more fundraising to be done. And that’s where you come in — while there’s no requirement to donate in order to enter the giveaway, it’s certainly encouraged. Head over to UNICEF’s site for details on how to win, and an opportunity to donate — yes, using your points-earning credit card!
