Want to do something nice while you’re doing online holiday shopping? You can use Amazon Prime Now to buy gifts for the homeless and have them delivered within hours.
YouTube user Rob Bliss shared a video he calls, “How to Hijack Amazon Prime Now for Good,” and in it he uses the 2-hour shipping service to send gifts directly to people living on the streets. In the video, we see Bliss asking homeless folks what they need and then he enters the street address at Amazon Prime Now and describes exactly who the courier should be delivering it to.
Using this shipping service gets essentials and gifts right to the people who need them faster than you could go buy and deliver them yourself!
“My hope is that people see this and realize their potential to help enable giving,” Bliss says. “Special thanks to Amazon’s couriers, all of whom delivered their package with humanity and grace.”
You can listen to The Good Stuff weekday mornings at 6:15am and 8:30am!
