Starting today, for the next few days, you might see a black car driving around all pimped out to look like Santa's sleigh. This is Uber's toy drive initiative that involves picking up toys from 21 businesses to benefit Chicago-native Jennifer Hudson's Julian D. King Gift Foundation. The sleigh circuit kicks off tonight at Barleycorn in RiNo where you'll get a discount on your ride (and a free pre-party starter) in exchange for bringing a toy for J.Hud's foundation. [Racked Inbox]
