UberASSIST: You Ride You Raise
We are proud to announce Uber South Africa’s national assist campaign, in partnership with Reach For A Dream Foundation, to help fulfil the dreams of children faced with a life-threatening illness.
For 27 years the Reach For A Dream Foundation, has brought hope, joy and healing to countless South African children. These children between the ages of 3 and 18 years have used their dreams to fight life-threatening illnesses such as cancer and leukaemia, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, renal failure and various blood disorders.
How To Achieve This
For the next 3 months, we will be donating a percentage of fares to the Reach For A Dream Foundation! Fares will remain the same, and Uber will round the fare down to the nearest Rand and donate a percentage of the difference. In keeping with the business model, our partner-drivers will still earn 80% of the total fare.
What Does This Mean For You
These small amounts donated from each riders trip, although a few cents here and there, when combined with riders across the country become a significant contribution to Reach for a Dream and improving the lives of these children.
Making Dreams Come True
Reach For A Dream touches the lives of 25 000 children annually through dream fulfilment and various projects. Some dreams have included flying in helicopters, becoming a fireman, owning a dollhouse, meeting Celine Dion and swimming with dolphins.
For more information please visit the Reach For A Dream website.
For the next 3 months given the scale of trips in South Africa, if you ride, you raise and help contribute tens of thousands of rands to making these wishes a reality.
Whether you’re a freshman or a senior headed back to campus this fall, one thing is certain—you’ll need to eat. And there is nothing worse than being limited to questionable cafeteria food or taking a chance on expired leftovers in the back of the fridge. The best news? UberEATS is expanding to 30+ major college campuses by the end of the year, from Penn State to LSU to Boise State. Since we want you to focus on what you love about college and not worry about your next meal, we’re predicting the 5 times you’ll need to order UberEATS this semester.
We are excited to surpass the 100th city mark by welcoming two Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, to the UberEATS family. From Atlanta to Warsaw, people have truly embraced this easy and reliable way to discover the food they love at the push of a button. Whether that’s an Indian inspired samosa, a good old-fashioned American burger or Vietnamese pho, people in 27 countries are using UberEATS to get a taste of the world’s flavors at the push of a button.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
