We Love Amazon! Founder Pledges $2.5 Million in Support of Same-Sex Marriage in Washington State…
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie, are donating $2.5 million to help pass the same-sex marriage referendum in Washington State. Which makes them one of the largest financial backers of gay marriage in the country.
With the gift, the couple have doubled the money available to the proponents of Referendum 74, which would legalize same-sex marriage in the state by affirming a law that passed the Legislature this year.
Proponents of the effort in Washington State called it a game-changing gift that gives them a fighting chance in November.
“To get this from a straight, married couple sends a powerful message that marriage is seen as a fundamental question of fairness,” Zach Silk, the campaign manager for Washington United for Marriage, said Thursday in an interview.
Now of course the bigots (One million Morons for example) will be out in full force telling anyone idiot that will listen to boycott Amazon, however we say show your support and SHOP Amazon whenever you can…I do!!!
