Ugly Christmas Sweaters, Karaoke & a Good Cause … Washington Lyft Riders Experience ‘Merry Mode’
Last year, D.C. Lyft riders were given a cheery option for the holiday season called “Merry Mode.” When selected, one of three fabulously yarn bombed cars arrived to take them to their destination, offering the opportunity to sing a little Christmas carol karaoke along the way.
Each Merry Mode Lyft car was outfitted in a custom ugly Christmas sweater, some even sporting LEDs … be still my beating heart. Spearheaded by Philadelphia yarn bomber Jessie Hemmons (known as the Ishknits), her team of knitters and crocheters included, Rhiannon Bly (@sameshit), Alexander Reynoso (@AlexCreates), and Jill and Lorna Watt of Knits For Life (@KnitsForLife).
The best part? Lyft donated its share of each Merry Mode fare to local non-profit, Martha’s Table.
