We at National Jets / National Air Ambulance are in the business of serving others. As a group we take this philosophy even one step further and apply that service ethic to help charities within our community. Not only did National Jets / National Air Ambulance have toy drives for Miami Children's and Holt Children's Hospitals, but we also donated executive charter flights as fundraiser auction items to help raise money for The United Way of Broward County at the "Mayor's Gala" and also for The Children's Aid Club. We are also part of Angel Flight Network, where patients who may not be able to afford air transportation costs are transported on empty flight legs so they may receive treatments at hospitals around the country. We also support The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Ronald McDonald Houses of Broward & Dade Counties, and The American Cancer Society in their local fund raising events.

Our other Charity Work:
"On behalf of the children, families, staff, and the Board of Directors of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Florida, we would like to thank you for your generous donation as a Sponsor.
I am excited to say that our 6th Annual Home for the Holidays Lighting Ceremony was an incredible success! We had a sensational event filled with delicious food, music, dance, and a great crowd. It was an excellent way to kick off the holiday season. More than 350 people gathered together to support our outstanding organization and the Share-A-Night program. Our House was beautifully decorated and illuminated with holiday lights as they represented our families of past and present, as well as our generous donors and contributors.
This year, we are very close to reaching our $60,000 as we collect the last of the incoming donations. Part of our goal was made possible by our amazing sponsors that each year generously contribute for this special event. Each sponsor is very valuable to us and we couldn't make this event possible without them. For this reason and many more, we cannot thank you enough for your wonderful dedication to our organization.
The Ronald McDonald House is very fortunate to have National Jets, Inc. as a special friend. You have been a great support to our organization and we look forward to our continuous partnership. Again, thank you and remember you will always have a friend at the Ronald McDonald House."
"On behalf of the patients and staff at Miami Children's Hospital, we would like to thank you for your recent donation of toys.
This wonderful donation will be enjoyed by our patients. We appreciate you thinking of the children and wanting to do something so beneficial for them. Your kindness will help brighten their day and help them have a more enjoyable hospital stay.
We welcome your support and thank you for your interest in Miami Children's Hospital."
"On behalf of all members of the Children's Aid Club, I am writing to thank you for your very generous donation for the 2009 Valentine's Taste 'N' Tell Brunch, our annual fund-raising event. Your continuing support, year after year, is much appreciated by us all.
As you know so well, Children's Aid Club very actively provides funds, clothing, goods and services to needy children, families and organizations in Broward and Palm Beach counties. Our Welfare Committee reviews and carefully evaluates each application for support. Then , the full membership votes whether or not to approve the request. We allocate and spend our hard earned funds thoughtfully and wisely.
All Children's Aid Club members, as well as the many children-in-need of Broward and Palm Beach Counties, send you a very special "thank you" for your much appreciated support of our 2009 Valentine's Taste 'N' Tell Brunch. You make it easier for us to do the things that give us great joy."
"Thank you so much for your support of the Children's Aid Club!
Your participation in the 2009 CASF Annual Charity Golf Classic sponsored by KM/Plaza Construction Services and Baker Concrete on May 7, 2009 and your generous contribution for Hole & Tee Sponsor made the event a success. One hundred percent of the money donated to the Children's Aid Club goes directly back into the community.
We help countless children in South Florida whose needs are not met by the existing social programs. These children and their families suffer medical, financial and physical hardships and often live in the most humble conditions. Thanks to your generous contribution, we will be able to reach many more of these children.
Thank you again and please know that your donations are helping the children and families who need it the most."
