Amazon Smile Charity Integration for bits/subs and broadcasts
smile.amazon.com allows amazon users to select a charity organization from a massive database and 0.5% of purchases will be given to that charity.
It would be fantastic if users on Twitch could select a charity from the existing Amazon Smile database on their Twitch profile settings, where an amount is taken from the Twitch portion of every sub purchase or bit purchase. The broadcaster receives the same amount, but a small percentage is donated from the bit fee or Twitch portion of sub revenue. Users making this choice could receive a special chat badge indicating they support a charity!
In addition to this, a separate tool for broadcasters to enable a similar option on their channel (if desired) where a portion of their sub and ad revenue go towards a charity of their choosing. Amazon Smile has a massive database of charities, and it would be excellent to provide partners access to this database to expand the charities available for integrated support.
Thank you Sundacat. As a non-profit we can confirm that Smile Amazon is no longer active.
The only problem is amazon is closing amazon smile: https://www.aboutamazon.com/news/company-news/amazon-closing-amazonsmile-to-focus-its-philanthropic-giving-to-programs-with-greater-impact
what a great idea!
I've voted 3 times on this and that's the most votes I can vote so I'll be sharing it on Twitter as well. :3
I would much enjoy this! It'd be so beneficial to the caster and the charities!
Organizing charity events and percent sharing is incredibly hard as an individual! this would make it alot easier. If they were in the data base there could be options for many options too! this is a great idea.
Here here! A great way for Twitch to give back and make an impact!
Absolutely. 100% on board.
10/10 idea! :thumbsup:
Yes please. Much respect for the charity stuff that Twitch does. Tying it in with Amazon's charity stuff seems like a natural fit.
