UberImpact – Helping Canada’s Homeless

We’ve all been feeling the cold over the past couple weeks as we experienced what was one of the coldest ever months on record. We’ve been able to take cover indoors, but not everyone has been so lucky. With more than 37% of Canadian households having difficulty maintaining housing – more and more families are relying on emergency shelters. We wanted to find a way to help these families.


For every uberX ride taken this week, we’re donating $1 to Raising the Roof to help Canada’s Homeless.



Enter the promo codeRaisingTheRoof‘ in your Uber app and we will donate $1 for every trip taken with uberX from now until Friday to help Canada’s homeless – in Toronto, Ottawa or Edmonton.

You Ride, We Donate. Spread the News!

Raising the Roof provides strong and effective national leadership on long-term solutions to homelessness through partnership and collaboration with diverse stakeholders, investment in local communities, and public education.

With your participation, we can help ensure all Canadian families enjoy the same warmth we enjoy each and everyday!
