Amazon to discontinue its charity donation program

Amazon to discontinue its charity donation program that raised nearly $500 million as layoffs continue!

Amazon has donated about $500 million to charities since the program AmazonSmile launched in 2013.

In a notice to customers posted to its website, Amazon said that it plans to “wind down” AmazonSmile by February 20.

“After almost a decade, the program has not grown to create the impact that we had originally hoped,” the company said.

“With so many eligible organizations – more than 1 million globally – our ability to have an impact was often spread too thin,” it added.

The average donation to charities was less than $230, according to Amazon.
