There are a number of great Amazon.com wishlists and registries out there from volunteer organizations getting help to people that need it the most. Support is pouring in from around the country and the least we ask that Amazon.com do is provide free shipping for items on these registries. Relief organizers are sending a large amount of business to Amazon.com through these efforts.  We are doing our part, we ask that Amazon.com help and do theirs!

Letter to
Jeff Bezos, CEO Amazon Amazon.com
There are a number of great Amazon.com wishlists and registries out there from volunteer organizations (i.e. Occupy Sandy) getting help to people that need it the most. Search "Sandy" "Hurricane" and similar terms on your website to see just how many registries and wish lists are there. Then please use your internal metric tracking tools to see how much money has been spent on items from these lists. In fact, these registries are becoming so popular that numerous news articles have been written about them. Support is pouring in from around the country and the least we ask that Amazon.com do is provide free shipping for items on these registries. Relief organizers are sending a large amount of business to Amazon.com through these efforts and Amazon.com could help by covering expedited shipping for those purchasing items regardless of Prime status. Inquiries to Amazon.com customer service representatives suggest signing up for a free Prime trial, customers should not have to do this and remember to cancel Prime service if they do not wish to pay for it after the trial period ends. We would be happy to work with Amazon.com to ensure that only items going to relief efforts are eligible for free shipping (i.e. items on specific registries or wishlists). We believe free shipping would incentivize more purchases on Amazon.com, providing greater revenue and margins to your company. Consumers often ship for the best deal which is often driven by free shipping. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
