Today, Amazon announced what it appears to be a substantial expansion of program donating Kindle e-Readers to schools, libraries and other nonprofits in the United States and around the world.

They call it the Kindle Reading Fund.

Interestingly, for schools and nonprofits that are interested, all they say is this:

Please email us at donationrequests@amazon.com, and we’ll get back to you within 10 business days if we’re able to support your organization.

I wasn’t able to find any other guidelines for information they need.  I submitted a simple request, and will let you know what kind of response I receive from them.

They offer more specific information for a give-away program they are doing with the PTA here.

And here’s a video about their program in the developing world:

Thanks to TechCrunch for the tip.
