UberGIVING – Thank You, Prague!

Thank you, Praha!

We were overwhelmed by the generosity of Prague and more than 40 other cities across Europe. Together, we collected more than 40 cubic metres of your donations – that’s 2 full trucks for the Caritas of the Archdiocese of Prague which helps the refugee centers around the Czech Republic as a part of the national Caritas Czech Republic. Your donations will go to the detention centres for refugees in Vyšní Lhoty and Zastávka u Brna, where they are needed the most.

Over the course of three days in 46 European cities, thousands of riders and hundreds of partner-drivers, UberGIVING collected enough donations to fill 10 shipping containers.

As always, none of this would be possible without our amazing partner-drivers and volunteers, whose commitment and passion moved the riders they encountered.

“I have been always interested in charitable projects. The opportunity to help  with Uber the people affected by the war in Syria and other countries made me excited. Afterwards, when I saw the room full of the donations collected, it made me really joyful.”

– Dani, Uber Partner Prague

“I know a lot of partner-drivers who have been through similar situations or much worse. That’s why I know UberGIVING is going to have a big impact. I will work harder than anyone else for UberGIVING. It’s very important, it’s precious.”

– Mohammed, London Uber Partner-driver

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–
