Have you heard of AmazonSmile? This Amazon program allows you support Chapel in the Pines without any cost to you. When you make a purchase on Amazon, 0.5% of the money you spend is given to your favorite charitable organization at no cost to you. Chapel in the Pines is registered on AmazonSmile so when you purchase something from Amazon you can help Chapel in the Pines by selecting us as the recipient organization. 0.5% won’t be a lot if only a few participate, but if we can get all our members and friends to participate in this program, the amount could provide significant financial help for us.
Would you be willing to help? First, sign up yourself! (Heather Bogan said it took her only 25 seconds to sign up and that it was very easy.) Then, send this note to your friends and family and ask them to participate with us. Who knows! This may be a great source of funding to help pay off our mortgage or increase funding for ministries we would love to develop and support. To sign up for AmazonSmile and designate Chapel in the Pines as the recipient organization click here.
I have copied some FAQs from the Amazon website below. If you have other questions or concerns, please feel free to email me by clicking here.
