Amazon.com Sets Up Red Cross Fund To Accept Donations

| News

Amazon.com has set up a Red Cross fund to accept donations to support relief efforts for the victims of the terrorist attacks this week. The site has dedicated most of its home page to the effort, removing the normal cacophony of imagery, ads for products, and what-not, instead showing a simple notice for the donation drive. From Amazon.com:

All of us at Amazon.com are deeply saddened by the recent tragedies in New York City, Washington, D.C., and southwestern Pennsylvania, and we extend our sympathies and condolences to those affected. You can support relief efforts by making a donation to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. You can contribute from $1 to $100--any donation is greatly appreciated. ALL donated money will go to the Red Cross to help victims of this and other tragedies--Amazon.com is waiving its usual fees.

You can find out more information on the relief fund at Amazonis Web site.
