WestJet – The official airline of Live Different.

Since 2008, WestJet has supported Live Different with the gift of flight. Assisting with our domestic and international program delivery and business travel, WestJet’s gift of flight saves us in excess of $100,000 annually.

In 2012, WestJet furthered our partnership with the inaugural WestJet Live Different Build – their first international community investment initiative. To extend their caring culture and make a difference in one of their most popular Caribbean destinations, WestJet partners with Live Different to build new homes for families living in extreme poverty in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic.

Since their inaugural trip in April 2012, more than 250 WestJetters have volunteered on five Live Different Builds and have built a total of 28 homes for 28 deserving families. They have also made some significant enhancements to the local community including purchasing land for a new club for boys and girls, equipment for a local medical clinic, underwriting the salary of a doctor to be at the clinic three days a week for a year, and refurbishing basketball courts for local youth.

As the official airline partner of Live Different, WestJet is proud to offer Live Different Build and Academy volunteers a discount on their air travel when booking flights for their Live Different trips.

At WestJet, part of our mission is to enrich the lives of everyone in the WestJet world and clearly Live Different shares that same value ... We are very proud to be able to partner with Live Different to enrich the lives of the people who live in Dominican Republic and Mexico.
