#AmazonGoesGold is a global initiative
Last week, the Amazon Doncaster teams made a donation of £3,000 to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice as part of the Amazon Goes Gold campaign.
The charity plans to use the money to make precious memories with local children and families whose time together is unfortunately too short.
Amazon Goes Gold saw the teams at Amazon in Doncaster hold a series of gold themed events for a month.

The gold theme is a recognition of the international color for childhood cancer.
One of the events this year was a 48-hour PJammin’ party. The teams in Doncaster joined colleagues across the UK by wearing pyjamas to work in honor of children who spend every day in their pyjamas during treatment.
Amazon Doncaster iPort General Manager, David Benfell, said: “It is fantastic to support Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice as part of this year’s Amazon Goes Gold campaign and
we hope the donation will give a boost to the staff and volunteers who do so much for the children in our community.”
