$215 million donated to charities through AmazonSmile
Amazon has donated more than $215 million globally to charitable organizations through the AmazonSmileprogram since its launch in 2013. AmazonSmile provides a convenient way for customers to support charities they care about every time they shop with Amazon—from global humanitarian efforts to local hospitals and school PTAs. Since launch, charities that focus on animals, education, health, and disaster relief were most favored by AmazonSmile customers in the U.S., making up almost 50% of all AmazonSmile customer-supported charitable organizations.
Donations from AmazonSmile have resulted in hundreds of thousands of charities expanding their meaningful work across global communities making a difference in people’s lives, said Llew Mason, Vice President of Consumer Engagement at Amazon
Over the last five years, compassionate AmazonSmile customers have helped generate millions of dollars in donations to help us rescue and protect countless animals in need across the country, said Matt Bershadker, President and CEO of the ASPCA. That support covers a range of animal welfare programs for dogs, cats, horses, and farm animals, and we’re grateful to Amazon and their customers for helping us provide vulnerable animals with the care they need and deserve.
"Thanks to the generosity of AmazonSmile customers, Pencils of Promise has helped provide access to quality education for over 100,000 children around the globe."
