Apple and Amazon are collecting donations for Harvey storm relief

New, 12 comments

Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas yesterday, and while the storm has been downgraded to a tropical storm, it’s expected to drop up to 40 inches of rain in the area, which is leading to catastrophic flooding in the area. To help with the coming relief efforts, Apple and Amazon have begun accepting donations for the Red Cross.

As with its efforts to collect money for the Southern Poverty Law Center after Charlottesville, Apple has opened a page on its storefronts that allows users to make donations in $5, $10, $25, $50, $100, and $200 increments. The page states that 100 percent of proceeds will go to the American Red Cross, and that personal information won’t be shared with the organization.

Amazon and Whole Foods, meanwhile, will match up to $1 million in cash donations made to the American Red Cross Hurricane Harvey Relief via Amazon.
