is a time for giving, for doing good deeds and making an extra effort to put a smile on someones face. UBER are helping achieve that in a big way with #UberGIVING. Today from 2pm through to 8pm UBER users can request an UberGIVING car which will come to pick up food from your home or office to donate it to one of the UK’s leading food charities, FareShare, and homeless shelters, Whitechapel Mission, amongst others.

For these selfless acts of kindness UberGIVING elves are giving out rewards in the form of chocolate, from their friends at Lindt.
