UberSLEIGH Is Coming to India!

‘Tis the season to be jolly, and definitely ‘tis the season to spread the holiday cheer throughout the community. This year, join Uber India and Goonj in giving back to those less fortunate and host a contribution drive in your neighborhood or office!

We’ll come by with an UberSLEIGH full of festive surprises, and collect contributions from around offices and homes in the city. We’re partnering with the wonderful folks at Goonj to bring this to three Indian cities — Delhi, Bangalore and Hyderabad.

Goonj is a nation wide movement for channelising vital resources lying in excess in urban and middle-class households to far flung rural areas in India, thus addressing some of the very basic needs of millions of poor people. To learn more, you can visit their site here.

  • Spread the word at your home or office, and collect toys and other goodies!
  • Open the app on 25th and 26th of December between Noon and 9 PM.
  • Slide to the UberSLEIGH vehicle view and click on “Request Pickup.”
  • The UberSLEIGH and our team of elves will land up at your home or office with festive swag to pick up your donations!

WHAT YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE

Goonj accepts clothes, woolens, toys, stationery, sports equipment that are new or old but in good and usable condition and appropriate for children. You’re playing Santa to young’uns after all! Here’s the list of approved items you can contribute: toys, stationary, story books, new notebooks, sports material, umbrella, spectacles, lunch box, school bags and water bottles.

Follow the fun on Twitter (Delhi, Bangalore & Hyderabad) and Instagram (Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad) with #UberSLEIGH as our elves and UberSLEIGHs traverse the city picking up contributions.
