Texas Tailgate for a Cause: uShip Raises Funds for Communities In Schools

Fundraiser-610x610-cis-tailgate-ushipIt’s no secret that most of us on the uShip team are proud Texas fans. Many, if not most of us, either attended or have a connection to the University of Texas here in Austin.

That said, tailgating before Longhorns home games is a family affair every Fall at the ‘Ship. For years, we’ve hosted a company tailgate for employees, industry colleagues, friends and family. It’s a great opportunity promote the uShip platform to other Texas fans and have fun. So much fun, in fact, thatlocal radio hosts occasionally mention it on the air.

This year, uShip has teamed up with our friends atYeti Coolers (they make the world’s best coolers),Tito’s Handmade Vodka (they make the world’s best vodka) and Capitol Beverage Co. (they distribute the world’s best beers) to tailgate for a cause every game day.

By collecting donations at every event, we’re raising money for Communities in Schools of Central Texas‘ Holiday Assistance Drive, which distributes grocery and Wal-Mart gift cards to the neediest families in 54 Central Texas schools.

Thanks to generous donations from Yeti, Tito’s and Capitol, we’ve already raised over $1,100 for Austin-area families. (That’s 11 one-hundred dollar gift cards!) Here’s to charitable tailgating!
