June’s Uber Impact Partner: Lifelong

In honor of Pride Month, and the 40th year celebration of Seattle Pride, we are proud to announce Lifelong as our first Uber Impact partner.

Lifelong’s mission is to empower people living with or at risk of HIV/AIDS and/or other chronic conditions to lead healthier lives. Founded in 1983, they have served our community for over 30 years, doing whatever it takes to improve the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS.

“We are thrilled at partnering with Uber for their Uber Impact launch during Pride Week,” states Kelly Bray, Communications Manager at Lifelong. “Their support and promotional visibility will go a long way to deliver critical food, housing and health services to people living with HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses. Thank you Uber, and go Seattle Pride!”

So… How do YOU take rides to give back?

Here’s where the fun begins:

  1. From June 22nd to June 29th you’ll have the chance to Ride with Pride. We will have a handful of uberX cars on the system that will be designated “Pride Cars”. Be a lucky rider to catch a ride in one of these, and 50% of your fare will go back to Lifelong. Wondering how you’ll know if it’s a Pride Car? Don’t worry… you’ll know 😉
  2. Still have some friends that haven’t tried Uber? Have them sign up using the promo Lifelong14. All they have to do is take a ride before July 29th, and they’ll get $10 off their first ride AND Uber will donate $10 back to Lifelong.
  3. Last (but certainly not least) we’re teaming up with the Mayor of Burlesque to design and print 2015 Lifelong Calendars. These colorful calendars, which will be available at the end of the year (a perfect gift for the holidays, wink wink), will feature Uber cars and the fine dancers and drag queens of Seattle. The best thing about them (aside from the boas and pasties) is all the proceeds will go directly back to Lifelong.

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–
