Time for a Sweet Treat with Cupcakes for a Cause

Summertime is just around the corner, and we want to kick off the the season with a sweet surprise – a sugar high for a good cause! We are thrilled to announce that this Wednesday, June 18th, we are partnering with the scrumptious Sprinkles Cupcakes and the devoted Dallas Education Foundation to bring you Cupcakes for a Cause.

Beginning at 11am on Wednesday, June 18th, Uber users in Dallas will be able to request on-demand sweetness via the Uber app and have a box of four Sprinkles Cupcakes delivered at the tap of a button. The only thing we can think of that’s better than cupcakes on-demand is cupcakes on-demand for a good cause! So, for every box of cupcakes requested, Uber Dallas will donate a portion of the proceeds back to the Dallas Education Foundation’s Project: Amplify – a mentor-tutoring initiative of the DISD Imagine 2020 program.

Project: Amplify is a program supported by the Dallas Education Foundation as a part of Dallas’ Imagine 2020 campaign that strives to improve the quality of DISD education, affecting students, teachers, and staff. The program is a high-dosage, high-impact, scaled tutoring initiative that goes beyond standard tutoring practices. The program focuses on engaging the people of Dallas to power a program that can change the paradigm of expectations for students and can amplify schools’ efforts to encourage young people’s potential.


Here are the sweet deets:

  • From 11am-3pm on Wednesday, June 18th, UberSPRINKLES will be available for request (for $25) via the app (iPhone/Android) or online at m.uber.com
  • Pop open the Uber app, toggle over to UberSPRINKLES, hit “Set Pickup Location” and if everything looks correct, request on-demand deliciousness for you, your friend, or your officemates
  • An UberSPRINKLES vehicle will arrive at your location and deliver a box of (4) Sprinkles cupcakes, Uber swag, and Uber cheer 🙂
  • For every box of UberSPRINKLES requested, Uber will donate a portion of proceeds back to the Dallas Education Foundation’s Project: Amplify
  • No need to hand payment or tip the UberSPRINKLES drivers, as payment is automatically charged to the payment information tied to your account
  • For a deal this sweet, demand will be high so request early and often. If you’re unable to request UberSPRINKLES but still want to contribute, you can give back to Project: Amplifiy here.

For all of our social media lovers out there, we have an extra special treat to sink your teeth into! Capture the Cupcakes for a Cause fun by taking and tagging a picture with the hashtag #UberSPRINKLES and mentioning @Uber_Dallas & @Sprinkles. Three lucky winners will be chosen to win 3 dozen cupcakes from Sprinkles Cupcakes and a $50 gift certificate from Uber!
