During September, Amazon is raising awareness for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Special events will highlight the innovative work being done by hospitals and charities to increase the survival rate of paediatric cancer.
I’ve been at Amazon for 22 holiday seasons and this one is definitely unique, to say the least. I’m grateful to our teams who continue to play a vital role serving their communities. As we head into the peak of the holiday season, we want to share our appreciation through another special recognition bonus, totaling more than $500 million for our front-line employees across the world.
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the lives of people across the country and left them without regular sources of income. Here at Amazon, people have turned to us to provide essential products and services during this period and we in turn are bringing more people into our teams to meet the demand.
