Our thoughts are with those affected by COVID-19. Our top priority is the well-being and safety of our customers, employees, and communities during this difficult time - you can read more about our work here.

We also want to make it easy for you to help support charities who are working to help communities impacted by COVID-19. We are making it easy to use Alexa or Amazon Pay to make a donation and assist them in their life-saving work.

The Red Cross continues to deliver its lifesaving mission across Europe, with volunteers on standby to help wherever they are needed, from supporting in hospitals, delivering food or vital medicines to people in self-isolation, to providing much-needed assistance to overburdened national healthcare staff. It’s the generosity of their supporters that enables the teams to keep going and ensure that they can deliver their services and reach people in their hour of need. In the United Kingdom, you can use your voice to make a difference by saying:

Alexa, make a donation to the coronavirus relief fund

If you want to use German, just say:
