Uber: Focus On The Fireworks

I received a pretty cool email from Uber today urging me to “Forget my keys” this weekend. Their email is reminding you to leave your keys at home and focus on the fireworks. Take an Uber (or any safe ride home) if you plan to drink this holiday weekend. Uber has partnered with Mother’s Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and will match the total amount of MADD donations made through madd.org/uber between 7/1/2015 and 7/5/2015 up to $25,000.

Focus On The Fireworks

MADD’s mission is to end drunk driving, help fight drugged driving, support the victims of these violent crimes and prevent underage drinking. If you or someone you love has been impacted by drunk or drugged driving, MADD is here to help. Call MADD’s 24-Hour Victim Help Line at 877.MADD.HELP. Uber will match the total amount of MADD donations made through madd.org/uber between 7/1/2015 and 7/5/2015 up to $25,000.

Bottom Line

This is cool for several reasons,

1.) If you want to donate to MADD this weekend, Uber will match your donation (up to $25,000.)

2.) Uber will pick you up with one tap of the app (be sure to plan ahead if you haven’t used Uber before.)

3.) If you haven’t used Uber yet, you can sign up via my link and you will get your first ride for free (up to $20) which might come in handy this weekend.

Be careful and enjoy the holiday!
