For the second yr in a row, Chance the Rapper’s nonprofit, SocialWorks, teamed up with Lyft for the Spherical Up & Donate marketing campaign. The rapper introduced this month that clients of the on-demand automobile service may donate to Chicago Public Schools (CPS) by rounding up their fares to the nearest greenback.

“Again to college is right here, Chicago! I’m teaming up with @lyft to encourage everybody to Spherical UP & Donate,” Chance wrote. “Lyft has pledged to match all rider donations all through September.”
By means of the partnership, cash can be donated to The New Chance Arts and Literature Fund, an initiative targeted on arts enrichment schooling. Riders even have the possibility to contribute to different nonprofits, together with the ACLU Basis, Black Women Code and St. Jude Kids’s Analysis Hospital.
SocialWorks launched in 2016, in accordance to its web site; the basis raised $2.2 million for CPS.
