Uber drivers water: Splend, Australia’s largest supplier of rental vehicles for rideshare services today announced a partnership between its Uber driver community and social enterprise, Thankyou, to give complimentary bottles of life-changing Thankyou 600ml water to all Uber passengers in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Canberra over the next 12 months.
Thankyou gives 100% of the profits from its products to help end global poverty, with its water range helping to get safe water and sanitation services to people in need around the world.
Over the next twelve months, Splend will be supporting Thankyou and their goal to make an impact on the 663 million people around the world that still don’t have access to safe water.
Splend’s CEO, Chris King, said the partnership with Thankyou was the ideal fit, allowing the startup to convey an important message through one of the main advantages of riding Uber.
“Providing passengers with bottled water is one of the many perks that people have come to love about riding in an Uber,” Mr King said.
“Every bottle of water that our Members hand out will help Thankyou to fund water and sanitation services to people in need,” Mr King continued.
“As Splend continues to grow, we are finding new ways to provide value to both our Members and the community.”
Co-founder and Commercial Director at Thankyou, Jarryd Burns said “The partnership with Splend gives Thankyou a new avenue to share our product and our cause. Handing out a bottle of Thankyou water will now not only help tackle the world water crisis, but it will hopefully help start a conversation between Uber drivers and passengers about the power we all have as consumers – and maybe even help avoid that awkward small talk!”
