Uber + (RED) Team Up to Fight AIDS
Back in June Uber joined the EAT (RED) DRINK (RED) SAVE LIVES campaign to fight AIDS with (RED). This World AIDS Day, we’re partnering with (RED) and enabling riders to help drive towards an AIDS Free Generation.
(RED) has set its sights on eliminating mother-to-child transmission of HIV globally by 2020. On Tuesday, Dec. 1, Uber riders in more than 150 cities nationwide can join the fight by choosing to ride (RED) and donate $5 on top of their normal fare.* Around the world, cars in the app will turn red to drive awareness around the cause.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has generously pledged to match all donations made to (RED) in-app on December 1. With this match, every $5 donation helps provide a month’s worth of lifesaving medicine, which costs as little as 30 cents a day, to a mother living with HIV/AIDS.
Want to donate? It’s easy.
- On December 1 in participating U.S. cities, choose the (RED) option in the app
- Your uberX ride will be the same as usual
- Uber will contact you by SMS at the end of your trip — reply YES to donate $5 to the Global Fund*
If you’re not riding on December 1, you can still join the conversation and support the drive to an AIDS-free generation.
$0.25 of each $5 donation will be used to cover processing fees.
*All donations made through the (RED) option in the app go directly to The Global Fund, a 21st-century organization designed to accelerate the end of AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria as epidemics.
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.
