SCOTT KIDDER — Buying holiday gifts on Amazon.com? For anywhere from $2.99 to $5.99, depending on the item, you can have your item gift wrapped. How convenient!
Even better, Amazon gives some of that money to charities! Thanks to their "Gift Wrap Your Holidays with a Smile" program, Amazon will donate between 60 and 75 cents per item to a nonprofit organization.
There's a catch, though: your nonprofit has to send volunteers to Amazon to do the gift wrapping! For up to ten hours at a time, while standing up.
Wow, that's a pretty good deal for Jeff Bezos. Charge between $2.99 and $5.99 for gift wrapping, and only pay labor 60 to 75 cents — and do it all in the name of charity! As our tipster says, "Amazon Xmas Fund-Raiser Does Ebenezer Proud."
