Amazon has stolen from Charity

Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP), an Amazon company has terminated my publishing account for the second time. They claim that they detected reading or borrow activity for my e-books "originating from accounts attempting to manipulate Kindle services." A claim for which they never offered any substantiation.
I'm not begging for my account to be reopened as I'm tired of the suspicions, of the constant harassment and the badgering. I have always done all I can to promote the books the right way. I don't use any third-party marketers except Facebook, Twitter, and Storyfinds. I can't even afford to pay for other marketing or promotion.
At the start of September, I pledged to DONATE ALL MY ROYALTIES AND INCOMES FROM PAGES READ FOR SEPTEMBER TO THE INTERNATIONAL RED CROSS.
This pledge was being run as a month-long campaign on Facebook and was receiving positive feedbacks with likes and shares. Since I received the notice of termination, I've had to cancel the on-going Facebook promotion for the #ReadtoHelp Campaign.
I don't understand how Amazon thinks I'm manipulating the sales of my e-books. Regardless, I know I am not guilty. And, I declare this FACT to all and sundry.
Amazon had stolen from me many times and each time it happened I forgave them. But not this time. This time, Amazon had stolen from the poor and the vulnerable. These afore-mentioned royalties and incomes from pages read, most especially in September, were hard-earned and were earmarked for the International Red Cross. They have stolen it from them.
I would like to ask your support for the monies I earned to be given to the International Red Cross. That money, which was nothing to sneeze at, was meant to support causes that the IRC supports. Among them, the Rohingya refugees, the flood victims of Harvey and Irma in the U.S. and the Caribbean, the victims of the Mexican earthquake and Hurricane Katia.
Thank you for your support and for your understanding.
