LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - 09-22-2017 (Press Release Jet) --
Rideshare drivers from Uber and Lyft have joined forces to bring much needed relief to
HeadrestAds.com, which provides RideCap headrest covers for the rideshare industry, is
collaborating with the faith-based nonprofit charity Convoy of Hope, to develop a unique
"in car" text-to-donate system that encourages rideshare passengers to text in their hurricane
relief donations during the ride.
"This is a fantastic way for Uber and Lyft passengers to be reminded of the ongoing relief
that is so desperately needed" says Eric Nuebauer, Corporate Relations Director at Convoy of Hope.
"After we saw the devastation, we decided to give what we could, so they can do all that they can"
said Dewey Oates, owner of HeadrestAds.com.
The system is quite simple. All drivers that request, are provided a free Convoy of Hope
headrest card that prompts the rider to text "RIDE" to 50555 to make a $10 charitable donation.
The passengers never need cash, the donation is conveniently billed to their cell phone.
According to Dewey, the drivers can either place the new Convoy of Hope insert into their
existing RideCap headrest cover, or simply display it anywhere in their vehicle. Up to 5,000
free Convoy of Hope insert cards will be distributed to rideshare drivers.
