Eight months and $4 million later, passengers have proven that through Round Up & Donate, the more we ride, the more we raise! Starting January 30th, your ride can go the distance by impacting the lives of courageous kids fighting cancer and other life-threatening diseases. For the first time ever, passengers nationwide can donate to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® and by making this donation, you’ll be in pretty good company!
We’ve teamed up with longtime St. Jude supporter and Nashville favorite, Brett Eldredge, to celebrate St. Jude’s introduction to the Lyft community and show the difference we make when we take a seat together.
"I am so thankful to St. Jude for the opportunity to meet these incredible kids. The courage and zest for life that they have is something that will inspire me forever. Now everyone can help make an impact with Lyft’s Round Up & Donate. I hope that everyone can see how powerful and simple it is to help by donating. Let’s give these children the life that they deserve.” - Brett Eldredge
St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. And your support also means that families will never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food -- because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
Ready to join us and Brett by opting in? Go to ‘Settings’ in your app, tap ‘Round Up & Donate,’ choose St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® as your cause, then take a ride. Once you’ve chosen your cause, Lyft will automatically round-up your fares to the nearest dollar and donate the difference.
“'Lyft's Round Up & Donate provides people an easy and convenient way to support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude," said Richard Shadyac Jr., President and CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. "Just a few cents can ultimately round up to a tremendous contribution, enabling us to continue with groundbreaking research and treatment all while keeping our founding promise that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.”
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® joins many other causes you can support when you ride with Lyft. By tapping Round Up & Donate, the Lyft community has contributed to some important causes, like closing the gender gap in technology with Girls Who Code and supporting service men and women on active duty through the USO.
