Amazon partners with Barnardo's

2019 - present

Since 2019, we have had the pleasure of working on Amazon’s partnership with Barnardo’s.

Barnardo’s supports around 300,000 children, young people, parents and carers through more than 1,000 services around the UK. The various lockdowns and restrictions that have affected us all have meant Barnardo’s has required further support to make their services available to everyone that needs them.

In response to this, and to support their efforts, Amazon expanded its partnership with the charity to connect Barnardo’s children’s services with both Amazon’s fulfilment centres and development centres in the UK. The UK Amazon teams worked with Barnardo’s services to establish their needs and help them develop an Amazon Wish List to the value of £1,000 which included books, stationary, Amazon Echo Devices, toiletries, toys and much more. The Amazon teams also made an additional £1,000 cash donation to each local Barnardo’s services.

The donation is part of a longstanding relationship between Amazon and Barnardo’s. At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Amazon donated £10,000 to Barnardo’s to help the charity during the early stages of lockdown.

In late 2019, Amazon donated £30,000 to Barnardo’s and hosted STEM Christmas parties for children supported by the charity in dozens of Amazon buildings across the UK.

Clearbox supports Amazon's communications with the charity, drafts media materials, coordinates photography around the UK and secures lots of regional press coverage for the partnership. We are very proud to be able to support on such a worthwhile cause.
