Donut look any further – enjoy guilt free treats for a good cause

Every September, Amazon ‘Goes Gold’ for kids with cancer, raising awareness and funds for local organisations that support children and families impacted by the disease.

This year, we’ve teamed up with online donut delivery sensation, Dr. Dough Donuts to create a limited-edition fundraising box of gold-themed of donuts.

Gold donuts for Amazon Goes Gold

The ‘Amazon Goes Gold’ box features five mouth-watering gold-themed donuts including three never-before-seen flavours: Pina Colada, Caramel Truffle Custard and Golden Rings. $10 from the first 600 boxes purchased will be donated by to fund kids cancer initiatives at the Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation and The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation (Melbourne).

The limited edition box is available for next-day delivery for those based in Sydney and Melbourne until 26th September 2022. Other flavours in the Amazon Goes Gold box include Nioccolata creme with golden pretzel and sticky caramel and Biscoff Glaze.

Co-Founder of Dr. Dough Donuts, Geoff Bannister said, “It is with great pleasure that we have partnered with Amazon on this great cause. Our purpose is to share happiness and this time not only are we achieving this through donuts, but also by supporting an initiative that can be so impactful in the lives of children and adolescents.”

People working at Amazon’s sites and corporate offices around Australia are invited to come dressed in their pyjamas or gold—both virtually and in-person – in solidarity with the hundreds of Australian children that are diagnosed with cancer each year, for whom pyjamas are the battle uniform as they go through their treatment and recovery. Staff donations collected at the annual Pyjama Day events will be matched by the business, and donated to local children’s hospitals to fund kids cancer initiatives.

Mindy Espidio-Garcia, Director of Operations at Amazon Australia said, “Amazon Goes Gold for Kids with Cancer is an initiative we take great pride, and one that is very close to my heart. Not only do we raise funds that support children around Australia who are battling cancer, but we encourage employees to look after each other and the community. More than 1,000 Australian children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer each year in Australia[1] and we are pleased to partner with Dr. Dough Donuts as a fun and delicious way to get more people involved and raise money to support this cause.”

This is the fifth year that Amazon Australia has taken part in the global campaign to help raise awareness for childhood cancer. In 2021, Amazon Australia donated more than $105,000 to Children’s Hospitals across the country – including Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation and Royal Children Hospital Foundation (Melbourne) – to help fund pediatric cancer research and support programs. This year, the company is aiming even higher.
