Today is Giving Tuesday, an international day that promotes charities after the Black Friday weekend. And this year, Amazon makes it easy to donate to Toys for Tots with Alexa.
The basic idea is pretty simple, just say, "Alexa, donate to Toys for Tots." and you confirm the purchase. Amazon takes over from there.
To make things even better, Amazon will match your Tots donation for a limited time. This means that you are actually donating a pair of toys to a few children in need. That's great.
Of course, this is not the only thing that does for charities. His smile program donates half a percent of the purchase price to a charity of your choice if you use the Amazon Smile website. Half a percent does not seem to be much, but it's pretty much a lot of thinking about how much Amazon Amazon will do in a single day. Now if everyone would use Smile instead of the "regular" Amazon site.
In any case, the point is the same: Amazon, with all its mistakes, does a good job of making it easy to donate to charity. This is just another way.
