Last year I had a great time visiting the Delta Flight Museum which is located at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

When I found out that the Freddie Awards would be held at the museum I knew it was an event that I didn’t want to miss. I’ll be heading to Atlanta on Wednesday afternoon, a day prior to the big awards ceremony.

I was beyond excited and honored to be invited by Ed Pizzarello of the Pizza in Motion blog to participate in an event for a good cause the day after the Freddies, the Delta Jet Drag.

The UberSLEIGH Toy Drive Is Coming To New York

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.

Now Uber would like to help spread the holiday cheer, looking for help in giving back.
