Use Prime Day to Help a Neighbor in Need

Christmas in July.


The Super Bowl of Shopping.

The Buy Now Bonanza.

Or more commonly known as, Prime Day.

A day that has given Black Friday and Cyber Monday a run for its money and Amazon Prime shoppers around the world get two days to push their buyer’s remorse to the side and replace it with shopper’s delight. While I did some Prime Day indulging myself the last few days, I was trying to think of way to incorporate this day into a Local Pulse article.

As a website and good news source who actively supports small, local businesses this was going to be tricky. And as a community who cherishes our small businesses, the challenge was leveled up again. Just before I gave up on the article all together, it hit me.

This is the perfect opportunity support local initiatives and help those in need. Here is a list below of non profits, schools and other charitable causes that have Amazon Wishlists, and, even better, are most likely on sale today.

Brentwood Elementary

”The administration at Brentwood Elementary School are excited and busy getting ready to welcome the faculty and staff back to the 2023/2024 school year. We want to begin this year with happy and rested cubs and need your help to do so. Below is an Amazon wish list to stock the teacher’s lounge. Most days during pre-planning, the teachers are too busy to stop and enjoy a lunch, so we hope to provide them with snacks they can graze on throughout the day. Our school does not have a PTA, so a donation would mean the world to us. If you feel to do so, please consider sending a box of treats our way and feel free to share to friends and family.” — Brentwood Elementary Facebook Page
