Amazon, Alexa and Shaquille O’Neal are collaborating this month to contribute knapsacks filled with school products to kids in requirement. If you have an Alexa in your house, you can state, “Alexa, Donate to Pleased Academic Year” to get involved.

After you state, “Alexa, Donate to Pleased Academic Year,” you will be triggered to validate your contribution of a knapsack approximately $25 in expense that is suitable for kids of a range of ages. Amazon will then send your contributed knapsack to Neighborhoods in Schools (CIS), a not-for-profit company that supports at-risk trainees. Amazon will match the very first $200,000 in knapsack contributions by filling the contributed bags with school products, such as pens, pencils, rulers and note pads.

Shaq belongs to CIS’s nationwide board of directors, and his “Shaq-to-School” programs, in collaboration with Amazon and Zappos for Great, are anticipated to supply 5,000 trainees with brand-new knapsacks and products.

Consumers can not choose particular knapsacks for contribution; Alexa pre-selects the bags and offers donors a quick description and rate prior to verifying the purchase.

The program runs now through Sept. 9.
