Although I’ve never used Uber, I love all of the interesting & odd promotions that they come up with.
The first Uber promo that I can recall was over the summer when they delivered ice cream in various cities around the country. The next promo that stood out was in late October. Uber delivered kittens for National Cat Day.
Uber started off the holiday season on December 5 by delivering Christmas trees on-demand for one day. I was a bit surprised that Uber did not run a Thanksgivukkah promotion.
Now Uber would like to help spread the holiday cheer, looking for help in giving back.
From Uber: Join us in giving back to our community and host a toy drive in your office. We’ll come by with an UberSLEIGH full of festive surprises, and collect donations from the first 100 offices that pledge to contribute 20 or more toys.
Here is how your office can get involved:
- Fill out the form (link below) by 5:00 PM on December 17
- Spread the word and make sure the toys are age appropriate (Unwrapped toys and baby items in new or excellent condition, that are appropriate for children ages newborn to three years old. For hygiene reasons, stuffed animals and used fabric toys are not accepted. New fabric toys are fine.)
- Uber will get in touch to schedule a pickup
- The UberSLEIGH & it’s team of elves will bring treats to thank you for helping out
All donations will go to Room to Grow: They’re dedicated to enriching the lives of babies born into poverty by providing families in need with individualized parenting support, referrals to vital community services and all of the needed baby items to ensure a healthy and secure start in life for their children.
The UberSLEIGH will stop by to pick up your donations on December 19.
