Ride an Uber and Make a Child Smile

During this Holiday season we want to thank everyone for how we have been received in Bogota, and now that we are part of the community, we want to announce our Christmas campaign, #UberSLEIGH!

#UberSLEIGH is a project that we are doing worldwide to help children in need and we are asking for your help!

When: Saturday, Dec 14th to Monday, Dec 16th from 10am to 8pm


How Does it Work

1)   Starting this Saturday you will see a second vehicle option in your Uber app, the #UberSLEIGH!

2)   Buy your gift and on your next ride, select the #UberSLEIGH.

3)   Give your gift to your driver (we do not accept cash donations) and enjoy your Uber ride!

We will know how many gifts have been given by the number of Uber Sleighs ordered. So remember, #UberSLEIGH is only for riders who are donating a gift.


Gifts to donate:

1)   School Kit (backpack, notebooks, markers, pens, pencils, erasers, color pencils, crayons, rulers, etc.)

2)   Learning Games (please no violent toys such as guns or knives, etc.)

3)   Books (both for young kids as well as for adolescents)


For this project we are partnering up with La Fundación a La Rueda Rueda, (http://www.fundacionalaruedarueda.org), a foundation that helps children in need. We will be helping the 186 children that are already being supported by the foundation. The gifts will be handed over to the foundation on the 19th of December at our Christmas party.


Thank you so much for your support of Uber in this very special cause!

UberEATS: Using technology to build a reliable food delivery experience

A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
