Alexa Can Help You Donate To Toys For Tots On Amazon

Amazon is taking wonderful strides this year. With so many people in need, Amazon has made it easy for customers to donate a toy to a child in need.  

Customers can now donate a toy to Toys for Tot via Alexa devices by simply saying, “Alexa, donate to Toys for Tots. Click To Tweet

After speaking the command, Alexa will recommend a toy from the pre-selected Toys for Tots list valued up to $20 for a broad age range. You can see the Toys for Tots full Charity.  After Alexa confirms your purchase Amazon will ship the toy directly to Toys for Tots list

Amazon will be matching customer donations throughout the end of the year – toy for toy – doubling customers’ contributions!  For every toy that is donated Amazon will donate a toy. 

If you prefer to send a monetary donation to the charity of your choice outside of Toys for Tots you can do so through Alexa. You can simply say  “Alexa, donate [dollar amount] to [charity of choice] after Alexa confirms your purchase Amazon will ship the toy directly to Toys for Tots.

To check the status of your donation you can enable notifications to receive alerts

Toys for Tots is a 501(c)(3) organization, so your donation may be tax deductible. It is important to check with your tax advisor if you would like to deduct the donation.
