World AIDS Day: We Can Make a Difference
Our global partner (RED) has set their sights on eliminating mother-to-child transmission of HIV (MTCT) globally by 2020. Locally, San Francisco AIDS Foundation provides free HIV prevention and care services to more than 16,000 members of Bay Area community each year. Since 1982, the foundation has promoted the health and wellness of those living with HIV and those most vulnerable to the disease.
This Tuesday, riders in San Francisco can support the fight against AIDS by choosing to ride (RED) in their app and donating $5 on top of their normal fare. All contributions will be divided evenly between The Global Fund* and San Francisco AIDS Foundation to help deliver life-saving medicine and support HIV prevention and care services. In addition, the Gates Foundation has generously pledged to match all donations to The Global Fund that day.
Your uberX ride will be the same as usual on December 1, but cars will appear red in the app and Uber will text you at the end of your trip. Reply YES to donate $5, split evenly between The Global Fund and the foundation**, and join us in the fight for an AIDS-free generation.
For more information on San Francisco AIDS Foundation, and to learn about other ways to get involved, visit the foundation’s website.
*The Global Fund, the recipient of (RED) funds, is a 21st-century organization designed to accelerate the end of AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria as epidemics.
**$0.25 of each $5 donation will be used to cover processing fees.
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.
