Through a new collaboration with Worldreader, Amazon is donating thousands of Kindle e-readers to support reading programs in the developing world. Worldreader’s mission is to create a planet where everyone is a reader — after just six years, they have helped more than 4 million readers around the world access a library of both global and local books.

Local Schools and Libraries
As part of our contribution to the communities where our customers and employees live and work, Amazon has donated thousands of Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets to schools and libraries throughout the world. Amazon is committed to improving children’s literacy. Kindle e-readers are an exceptional tool for teachers and students to ignite excitement for reading and create more advanced learning opportunities by bringing technology into the classroom.
Hospitals and Nonprofit Organizations
We’re dedicated to helping local hospitals and nonprofit organizations. In the last year, we have provided devices to Seattle Children’s Hospital, Mary’s Place, Rainier Scholars, Well Spring Family Services and more in the Seattle area.
The National PTA
As the official e-reader of the PTA, Kindle and the National PTA are working together to help families get more involved in their children’s reading through the Family Reading Experience program. To learn more about this program, visit here.
