THE team from the fulfillment center at Amazon in Gourock has made a donation of £1,000 to Calum’s Cabin.
The contribution was part of the company’s global Amazon Goes Gold campaign for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
Amazon Goes Gold is a global initiative to highlight, support and amplify the incredible work of many organizations to increase survival through life-saving treatments and research.
Every year Amazon supports and partners with childhood cancer organizations across Europe that make it possible for every child affected by cancer to fight for their future.
Calum’s Cabin will use the money to help more families with a child suffering from cancer.
Amazon Goes Gold saw Amazon’s team in Gourock hold a series of gold themed events for a month. (Gold is the international color for childhood cancer.)
One of the events this year was a 48-hour PJammin’ party. The team in Gourock joined colleagues across the UK by wearing pyjamas to work in honor of children who spend every day in their pyjamas during treatment.
Lorna Sharples, leader of the Amazon Gourock site, said: “It’s fantastic to support Calum’s Cabin as part of this year’s Amazon Goes Gold campaign and we hope the donation will give a boost to the staff and volunteers who do so much for the children in our community.”
Amazon employee Jim Dooley said: “It’s great that Amazon continues to support children’s cancer organizations both locally and around the world. I loved taking part in the activities on our site and I’m delighted to be able to make this donation to such a brilliant charity in our community.”
