After you confirm your toy donation order with Alexa, Amazon ships the toy directly to Toys for Tots. You can donate to Toys for Tots with Alexa any time through January 11, 2021.

$200,000 match means 10,000 toys @ $20.

There are currently 112 million Amazon Prime customers. So if even 1 in 1,000 donate through Alexa, it will be oversubscribed by a factor of 11x. With the benefit being primarily to..... Amazon.

But because it's right in front of people & easy, many will donation that wouldn't have otherwise. So isn't that really the only benefit that matters?

Sorry to anyone who got a price mistake alert. I didn't pick up on that when I vetted. Thanks for the head ups habby3814

Right? I'm not going to not do it just because it might benefit Amazon in some way, too. I'm sure Toys For Tots doesn't really care, either.
