I was under the impression all Uber Drivers families qualify for this program. That's how I read the email. Every time I see donate, I get $5. Glad the put the tip option in the app. When I see the Donate button I will make sure to tell the customer that they can give me the $5, I will make sure Uber gets it.

First - how shameful - they are hitching their wagon to hungry kids without donating a single penny! Customers are to give back. Secondly wtf are they feeding these kids if $5 would make 50 meals?????? WTF????
And funny how their former Obama campaign manager comes up with Hungry Kids campaign when it's nothing but bad news for luber. Funny

Once this is all over, all that Uber needs to do with this button is make it a TIP Button instead! :cool:

We could call it ...

$5 donation button for No Driver Hungry!
Or......

......we can just tell Riders when they ask what this promotion is all about.

Rider: So what is the $5 No Kid Hungry Button?
Driver: Oh, instead of Tipping your Uber Driver, you can now choose to donate $5 to fee hungry children in the US.
Then in January, it will be changed to a Driver Tip Button. What do you think?

There are no hungry children in the U.S...we have social services for that...they eat like pigs, third world nations, however, is a different story...


There are hungry Uber drivers, who are working for peanuts

You know, I get the whole tipping issue...BUT this is a good thing Uber is doing...utilizing their massive reach to collect donations to a good cause. Let's not lower ourselves by giving this a negative spin.

When I saw this donation option I immediately thought about all the drivers who were doing this job to feed their families. I found it sort of insulting. The ultimate two faced corporate propaganda. On one side Uber continues to not pay their drivers enough to live on ... not by a long shot. They wont even give the passengers an option to tip. On the other hand they pull this blatant publicity stunt so they can say "Look at us, we are helping feed hungry people. We at Uber are one of the good guys". Well Uber, you are running this campaign on the backs of your drivers and passengers. You contribute basically nothing.

Sorry, there is no good spin on this. If they came out and said THEY will donate $2 from each ride taken - maybe, just maybe then would be some sort of good spinn. I would not be surprised if they are taking 25% from the donations to "facilitate" this. But as always they are good at shifting costs and responsibilities to others.
