  2. Enter the code UBER4FM into the ‘Promotions’ section of your app
  3. We’ll donate $1 for rides taken on May 6 to the Canadian Red Cross to help with Fort McMurray relief efforts

You can also donate directly to the Red Cross here, or make a $10 donation by texting FIRES to 45678. All donations will go directly to the Alberta Fires Emergency Appeal.

Thank you for helping to support our fellow Canadians in their time of need.
