4.  Remember to use AMAZONSMILE – CMH receives .5% of member purchases, as donation

As announced, please note, that CMH has now been registered with the AmazonSmile program.  This means that every time a CMH member buys through AmazonSmile, at this link < http://smile.amazon.com/ch/76-0287512, CMH receives .5% of our member purchases towards donations.

For your convenience this link has now been provided on our CMH website http://www.chinmayahouston.org/

We encourage all members to save the above link in their “Favorites” and use this link for future purchases.  This change does not cost members anything extra, but will most certainly help with CMH finances.
