With ongoing wildfires blazing across California, Oregon, and Washington and Hurricane Laura recently tearing through the Gulf Coast, disasters have ushered in multi-layered crises like power outages, evacuations, and contaminated drinking water. These circumstances have created an overwhelming scale of devastation. Our thoughts are with those affected by the disasters. Amazon is supporting nonprofits on the front lines of both disasters by donating nearly one million emergency aid items to help provide regional disaster relief.
Customers who wish to join Amazon in supporting the West Coast wildfires relief efforts can do so by donating funds to the American Red Cross and Save the Children.
Customers can also say, "Alexa, make a donation to the western wildfires at the American Red Cross," to donate via Alexa-enabled devices.
