You Rode, You Raised!
On September 15, we announced Ride for a Cause, our partnership with 5 charitable organizations. For two weeks, we donated a dollar to the cause of your choice for every ride you took. Today, we’re excited to announce the results!
By riding with Uber, you helped raise over $19,500 in donations!
|TELL YOUR FRIENDS|
Thousands of riders took nearly 10,000 trips for their cause of choice for a total of over $19,500 donated to our partners!
Finally, the charity with the most rides received an additional $10,000 from Uber DC. Yesterday, we were thrilled to present SOME with a donation totaling $14,682. The funds raised through Ride for a Cause will be used to provide nutritious meals to formerly homeless children in SOME’s after-school programs. These programs provide tutoring, homework help, and enrichment opportunities for youth living in SOME’s affordable housing for families.
Thanks to our riders for all of their support!
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.
