Amazon Prime Discount for Teachers

Amazon offers a Prime membership discount of half price fo students. While that is fabulous, I also think they should offer this incredible deal to teachers.  Students must verify eligibility with their school email so it would not be hard for teachers to do the same.  Teachers use Amazon in many different ways. It’s great to create wish lists to get out to parents, to order supplies and other things you need quickly without having to go out, and even on those days you watch a movie for whatever special reason, Prime Video is awesome.  Amazon is a great company and since they offer students (who are usually on a budget) a great discount, why not offer it to teachers who are also usually on a budget as well. Especially since the membership price comes out of our pockets and not the schools.  Of course not every item a teacher buys off of Amazon is for their class. Some teachers with Amazon Prime may not order anything for their students or classroom. I still think it would be great for Amazon to offer, as appreciation, a teacher discount equivalent to the discount they offer students.  I think all businesses should offer a teacher discount, but I am starting with a company that could set a great example for others to follow.  While this isn’t a pressing life or death matter, it’s important all the same.  Please help me get Amazon’s Jeff Bezos attention. Back me up in trying to get Amazon to offer a teacher Prime Membership discount.

Call on Google, Amazon, Apple & Facebook to save Net Neutrality!

On December 14th, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is expected to take up a proposal to repeal Net Neutrality. The plan the repeal Net Neutrality is expected to be successful.                      As such, we'd like to extend this opportunity to                Google, Amazon, Apple & Facebook to do something great...Save The Internet!   As the information and business backbone of our society, this decision would be nothing short of horrendous - imagine what your cable company will do when they can treat the internet like cable.    This attack on the free and open internet, one that has allowed the US to lead global information and tech innovation,  will suffocate US innovation and seriously damage the economy.    Therefore we humbly call on Google, Amazon, Apple & Facebook to pull all their services - Gmail, Google Drive, Google Maps, GSuite, Google Docs, Google Drive, Google Calendar, Google AdWords, Google Analytics, etc.; Amazon, Zappos, Amazon Web Services, Audible; iTunes, iDrive, Apple Music, etc.; Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Instagram, etc from any ISP that takes advantage of any rule weakening or destroying Net Neutrality.   We also call on Google, Amazon, Apple & Facebook to vigorously oppose any government to allow ISPs to block, slow, or otherwise discriminate against certain content or applications.                              Imagine a world where we're still all using AOL on dial-up.   Changes to the new rules include any changes to network access or speed, either to the benefit of those who can pay more to have their content move faster than others through the network of an ISP, or to the detriment of those who do not, in effect forcing ISPs to treat themselves as "common carriers".                                                    _______ If Net Neutrality is not upheld, internet service providers (ISPs), generally your cable company, will be able to decide which websites you can see, prevent you from accessing any website they see fit, charge you extra for access to certain pages or services (think $5/mo for Facebook!), and destroy new innovations.

Remove NRA TV from Amazon's Streaming Service & Website

My oldest friend (for nearly 20 years) has a son who attends Marjory Stoneman Douglas and was there last week, huddling and hiding for his life. For 30 anxious minutes, we knew there was a school shooting but has no word on his safety. We learned he was okay fairly quickly, but too many others weren't so lucky. After seeing 17 young people lose their lives, I was angered to see the defensive reaction from the National Rifle Association - and upset when I saw that Amazon hosts NRAtv, a channel with the slogan “America’s Most Patriotic Team on a Mission to Take Back The Truth." It’s a 24-hour streaming service with 22 original series that promote the NRA's propaganda, and there’s even an entire segment devoted to how it should be easier to purchase an AR15. Amazon needs to remove NRAtv.com from their services, sites and offerings immediately. The NRA has long ignored its role in promoting gun violence and betrayed the names of good and responsible gun owners. It’s time to hold it, and its partners, accountable. The NRA represents millions of gun owners BUT nowhere near all or a majority of U.S. gun owners. In fact, less than 10 percent of gun owners belong to the NRA. We need to include gun owners in this fight - responsible people who don't feel that the NRA speaks for them - so let's keep this fight focused. The NRA is a group that's rotten to the core and a company like Amazon should not be spreading its message. Not anymore. We must remember to respect the First Amendment above all else. If NRA members want to watch NRA TV, they can find it without Amazon's promotion. There is no place in your home for brands that earn money through the NRA. Sign this petition, then flood Amazon's Legal Department with calls at 206-266-4064. We already shook up their PR Department and got their long-running media hotline to temporarily shut down (206-266-7180), although it’s still worth a try during business hours, since they’ll likely put it back up again at some point.

Tell Amazon.com To Permanently Ban The Sale Of Whale, Dolphin, and Porpoise Meat

In just a few weeks in Taiji, Japan, I have witnessed unimaginable cruelty and bloodshed. The film The Cove is horrifying, and even though I’ve been here before, I can never fully prepare for what I am witnessing: the slaughter and mutilation of hundreds of dolphins. On February 22, Amazon.com responded to consumer pressure and removed dolphin, porpoise, and whale meat from their online store after the Environmental Investigation Agency and Humane Society International exposed them for selling whale bacon, whale jerky, canned whale meat, and more than 100 other products. But they have yet to adopt a clear policy that Amazon.com will never sell these items.Quietly pulling those products from their site is not enough. It’s time for Amazon.com to put a permanent ban on whale, dolphin, and porpoise meat in place.I know that not everyone can come to Japan to join me to speak out for dolphins and whales, but together we can convince Amazon to permanently stop selling all whale, dolphin, and porpoise products. If Amazon--the largest online retailer in the world--were to adopt a policy like this, it would send a clear message to the world.Thank you for your support. Many people in Japan are against this massacre, too, and we all appreciate your help in signing and sharing this petition.

Tell Amazon it’s time to adopt “waste-free” packaging

This has probably happened to you: You order a small, non-fragile item from Amazon. The item could easily fit inside a padded envelope. Instead, it arrives in a box that is much larger than needed. This happens practically every time I order something from Amazon. Recently, I decided that enough is enough. There’s no reason for a company of this size to participate in this much waste, day in and day out, all across the globe. Amazon has taken some initial steps to address the problem of packaging waste. Last year, they stopped using wrapping paper for products purchased during the holiday season and started using gift bags instead. The company was a leader in introducing “frustration-free” packaging - using packing materials that could be opened without requiring a box-cutter or other tools.  If Amazon addresses its pervasive practice of wasteful packaging we can feel better about shopping there. The company can come to be known for its responsible stewardship of our planet. This change may even be good for Amazon's bottom line.  If you’re as concerned as I am by the environmental cost of Amazon's over-sized and wasteful packaging, please take a moment to sign this petition. Let's let Amazon know it’s time to eliminate excessive packaging -- right away and once and for all.

Remove suicide shirts from Amazon

Amazon is currently selling t-shirts that mock suicide. Thousands die every year because of this preventable public health crisis. Suicide destroys lives, families, and societies. It is not a punch line. As a suicide attempt survivor, I call on Amazon to do the right thing and remove these products. I will boycott Amazon until this happens, and they apologize for the harm done. I hope you join me.

Stop selling serial killer Robert Pickton's book!

In honour of all the families who were affected by the horrible crimes of this predator, who were denied agency in his "trial" and who are still going through their healing processes, Amazon needs to refuse to sell "Pickton: In His Own Words" on its website. We urge Amazon to consider the implications of this book's sale, to respect the families of the victims of serial killer Robert Pickton and to remove his book from Amazon.com.

Amazon Should Help Educators

Teachers across the country are fighting for more pay in order to survive financially. Most spend a great deal of their own money to buy books and supplies for their students. A teacher discount on books with Amazon and a discounted rate on the Amazon Prime membership would sure help.  Amazon should partner with school districts across the U.S. and around the world to offer a teacher discount program.

Amazon CEO remove 'Slicey The Pig' toy. Animals are not objects but sentient beings.

PETITION UPDATE. Amazon is not global respectable retailer. This product is offensive and shows a lack of respect for animals and that Amazon supports and promotes animal cruelty. THE CEO Jeff Bezos has now twice refused to remove the product from from Amazon despite this petition.  'Slicey The Pig' sends out a wrong message that animals are objects and have no desires to live and are here for human use as products. Slicey The Pig thing is in profoundly bad taste as well seriously tainting the image of Amazon as a "respectable" retailer, just like selling steel-jaw leg hold traps. What are you thinking Amazon? This shows lack of respect. Animal need our respect\love and are not here for our gratification to inflict suffering and pain. This product teaches children and adults alike that it is acceptable to accept animal suffering. Products like these only promote distaste and teaches that we are not compassionate and sustainable people when it comes to animals. Please sign this petition to show that animals are not products. This product shows the extent of their brutality\victimization to the extent they are not victims. It shows they don’t have moral sentient value and they don’t matter. This product shows that animals are here for human benefit and that they are commodities like TV sets, phones etc. Animals appear different from us but at the end of the day this does not make them any less than us as we all bleed and suffer and fear. If this was a human depicted it would at once show a lack of respect hence this product is speciest. The Amazon CEO has refused to remove these disgusting product from it's site. After emailing him twice their executive relations team have not given any reason whatsoever ever other than its will remain on the site. A justification was asked twice but no response and they have decided not to pursue this any further while they clearly know they are promoting animal abuse. Please feel free to review the products at below UK SITEhttps://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=slicey+the+pig&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Aslicey+the+pig INTERNATIONALhttps://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_3_10/144-6946967-7523526?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=slicey+the+pig&sprefix=slicey+the%2Caps%2C303&crid=14VS2V67UIXE1 Also feel free to drop Jeff polite correspondence.

Doge4Amazon - Accept Dogecoin as a payment method

Currently Amazon does not accept crypto-currencies as a payment method alienating many people who do not have a traditional bank account.  Amazon.com being a leader in innovation should accept Dogecoin, as a form of payment. Dogecoin is fast, cheap, and stable. It is stable in value, has the lowest transaction fee of other major coins, has a huge supply of coins and has a very large, active community with on-going development.  Dogecoin is already being used by many small business owners, charity organizations, and entrepreneurs around the world as a means to buy and sell goods and services. It's time for Amazon.com to be one of the first major companies to see the power of Dogecoin and to accept it as a payment method. For more information on Dogecoin visit: dogecoin.com
