Uber is proud to announce a national partnership with the American Red Cross to help cities and citizens during disasters. The partnership took effect last week as this season’s first tropical storm, Arthur, developed. Uber is partnering with the American Red Cross1 to help communities’ disaster relief efforts.
This Fourth of July, we’re kicking off our partnership with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) to help keep you safe on the road! To get things started, we’re donating $1 to MADD ($10 for new riders) for every ride taken between 6 a.m. on July 4 and 6 a.m. on July 5 when you enter the promo code UberMADD. Help us spread the word!

The total raise will be about $1.4B with a second close of strategic investors soon. We are thrilled to have top tier institutional investors, mutual funds, private equity and venture capital partners joining us.
