Desert Financial Credit Union Celebrates International Day of Friendship, Surprising Valley Lyft Riders with $1,500 in Free Ride Credits

If you plan to take a Lyft ride on Tuesday, July 30th, you might receive a special random act of kindness.

Desert Financial Credit Union will be celebrating International Day of Friendship with Random Acts of Kindness given to 100 lucky Valley area Lyft riders.

Lyft will provide select drivers with envelopes that include Lyft ride credits and a message about kindness, courtesy of Desert Financial Credit Union.

Riders will be chosen at random by drivers to receive the Random Act of Kindness. With International Day of Friendship in full swing, Valley riders taking a Lyft on Tuesday are encouraged to chat with their driver (because who knows, they might be the day’s gifter of Lyft credits).

“Delivering free Lyft credits on International Day of Friendship is a fun way for us to reach people across the Valley with Random Acts of Kindness,” said Cathy Graham, SVP, Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer, Desert Financial. “With this and hundreds of other Random Acts of Kindness since we began, Desert Financial hopes to inspire pay-it-forward acts that benefit Valley residents exponentially.”

Drena Kusari, Lyft Regional Director adds, “At Lyft, we know our community is extremely generous and this was a fun opportunity to partner with Desert Financial to cultivate kindness between drivers and passengers on a day devoted to friendship.”

This special offering will take place on Tuesday, July 30th, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 5 p.m.
