If you shop online you probably already know of Amazon; the vast online retail giant that started operating in 1994 selling books, and now sells pretty much everything!

What may be less well known is that Amazon are very active in the community and provide a lot of initiatives and direct support to charities in the UK and beyond.

About Amazon in the Community

From the Amazon in the Community webpage:

At Amazon, if we do our job right, our greatest contribution to the good of society will come from our core business activities: lowering prices, expanding selection, driving convenience, providing frustration-free packaging, creating Kindle, innovating in web services, and other initiatives we’ll work hard on in the future.

We also contribute to the communities where our employees and customers live. For many years individuals, teams and entire sites have participated actively in the community in many ways to raise funds for deserving causes and organisations.
