Student Backpack with School Supplies

Amazon has enabled Alexa users to donate money toward back-to-school supplies for children in need. Users simply say, “Alexa, donate to Happy School Year,” to be guided through a $25 donation to fill a student backpack. Each pack will be filled with school supplies (including pencils, pens, a ruler, and a notebook) before it’s shipped directly by Amazon to the nonprofit Communities In Schools. Amazon will match the first $200,000. The donations are tax deductible, and donors will receive a thank-you message via Alexa from Shaquille O’Neal, former NBA player and member of the Communities In Schools National Board.

Deadline: September 9, 2019, for donations
