Since the beginning of 2014, across Europe Amazon has donated more than 1300 Kindle e-readers to schools helping special needs students to enhance reading and learning opportunities in classrooms across the EU. We have also provided support to many local community organizations and schools near our Fulfillment Centres.
We have donated hundreds of thousands of Euros / pounds to charities local to our fulfilment centers. We have a list of just some of the charities supported recently on our websites:
Amazon employees are also very active in the community, and we're proud to support their efforts. These activities run the gamut—employee-run toy drives around the holidays, food bank and clothing collection campaigns, sponsoring and coaching little league teams, serving on boards, and investing time into ensuring their favorite local organizations are helping as many people as possible.
