One ride sharing company will soon start enabling you to share more than just rides.

Lyft revealed on its official blog that it plans on rolling out the "Round Up and Donate" program. 

Expected to launch in a few weeks, the new campaign will reportedly let riders donate to charity while taking a Lyft.

If a rider opts-in, the company says their fares will be rounded up to the nearest dollar. That extra change will reportedly go to a number of different charities.

Lyft says the money will go to charities "impacting everyone everywhere."

Judging from screenshots provided by Lyft, there will be charity categories like environment, veterans, and equality.

More details expected in the coming weeks.
