Seems too good to be true - and lots of use for Amazon boxes smiling smiley

I just drop stuff off at Habitat for Humanity or Goodwill. And recycle cardboard boxes. At least those get actually reused.

They're not a charity.

Per the FAQ, they are a non-profit that facilitates donations to charities as well as providing some IT/tech-support.

I guess I'll give it a try and report back - our local Goodwill has gotten picky after covid, limiting donations. I have a fresh Bezos box and will fill and send it off next week.

I used it. I was able to send a 45lb box of clothing to Ukraine for a $15 label via UPS.

Became aware of them via a clothing company that had paired with them. Did some research and they seem legit.

If you want a free shipping label, they then donate to who they choose. For the $15, you get to choose from their list of possible groups. It's a good overall list.

Of course, I have no REAL way to know whether my donation made it to Poland for refugees, but it all seemed up and up on my end.
