The popularity of community gardens has grown over the past decade in the US perhaps in response to the fledgling economy, at first.

Internet retailer Amazon started out as an online book retailer, but the company has grown into a much larger organization – a multi-billion dollar organization, in fact. Since its inception, it has slowly grown into the largest online marketplace in the world. Amazon’s now more than just a marketplace; it is also a place where users can rate and share their thoughts on items that they purchase. Shoppers also develop lists of favorites to share with other members and rank other reviews and content. This social activity has helped to turn Amazon into a community space for people all over the world.
Amazon now appears keen to encourage more community activity and maintain its reputation with US shoppers. Its new charity initiative, Amazon Smile, was launched last month, and it appears to be an attempt to link Amazon back to grass roots and charities.
