Help at-risk Asians get where they need to go safely
WHAT WE DO
"Our daily Mission is to give each Rider and each Sponsor the best possible experience" - Co-founder Amy Chang
Due to increases in violent attacks and threats against Asians in recent months, many feel unsafe travelling in
urban areas via public transit or on foot.
Sponsor a Ride provides Uber, Lyft, and cab rides for Asian females, seniors, LGBTQ
and disabled in who are afraid to use public transit or walk due to current
threats of violence. You can help, and earn their eternal gratefulness!
To sponsor a ride for someone, sign into Paypal and send whatever you like,
via Paypal, credit, or debit card, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include a note in the Paypal
comments so we can properly recognize and honor you. Normally an average ride costs
around $25.00, but give whatever feels comfortable. Sponsors who donate $100.00 or more can be listed in our Hero Circle (scroll down to see it).
Corporate Sponsors are welcome, and much appreciated.
You can also sponsor on behalf of your school, church, non-profit, or enterprise.
To be reimbursed for a ride (only if you are in the above-mentioned groups) click on the link below and fill
out the Google form. Remember to take a Selfie and also a photo of your ride receipt,
clearly showing the date. Take advantage of this only if you are in real need;
otherwise you are taking a ride away from someone else who is at genuine risk.
