We’re Going Hairy For #NoShaveNovember!

This is the month. Those of you more familiar may already know what we mean, but for the benefit of those who have no idea – it’s time for NoShaveNovember!

Oh yes, for the whole month of November the men of Uber Malaysia have made a sacrificial pledge to put away their razors in a show of solidarity for fellow bros around the world. Trust us, it will not be pretty.

Here’s a look at how far they’ve come in week 1 so far:

We’ll be updating you on their progress every week so stay tuned for continued entertainment!

Why?

We all love having a bit of fun and the ladies for one, are relishing the opportunity to laugh at our guys; but while this may all sound like fun and games, the men have committed to this for a very good reason. Over a million men were diagnosed with prostate cancer last year, resulting in over 300,000 deaths and yet it is one of the most curable cancers with early detection.

We know these stats are no joke and we want to do our part in changing these numbers for the better. Not shaving is only one part of the story; to really make a difference we know we have to put our fun in action. For the month of November, we have committed ourselves to raising money for Majlis Kanser Nasional, Makna; and we want you to come on this journey with us.

How?

Easy:-

  1. Join the pledge. If you’re male, it’s not too late! Put your razors down and show your support for #noshavenovember by letting it all grow.
  1. Tell the world. Let your friends and family know you’ve taken this pledge (by week 3 they will probably ask anyway!) and tell them why this is important.
  1. Join the cause. It’s not enough just to grow a moustache or a beard. We will be donating from our personal purses to Makna – join us!

Head this way to make your contribution and join us in fighting prostate cancer. Every little bit counts!

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–
