Amazon will donate Kindles to promote digital reading

by John_A

Amazon aims to promote digital reading around the world and has established a new program called Kindle Reading Fund to achieve that goal. The Fund will be in charge of donating Kindle e-readers, Fire tablets and ebooks to various recipients, such as reading programs in developing nations. To make sure its devices reach the people who need them, the tech titan has joined forces with Worldreader, a non-profit that provides e-books to children and families in the developing world to promote literacy. The two already worked together in previous projects, according to TechCrunch, including bringing digital reading materials to 61 Kenyan libraries.

Besides reading programs, the Kindle Fund will also provide both devices and ebooks to schools, libraries, hospitals and other non-profit orgs around the globe. While it will introduce new projects, it will also be in charge of Amazon’s older ones. It will allow the company to formally accept donation requests from 501(c) or tax-exempt non-profits and schools, as well. In fact, if you’d like to submit a request, you can contact the company right now from its the new Kindle Reading Fund website.
