12. CMH receives .5% of member purchases from Amazonsmile, as donation

We are pleased to announce that CMH is now registered with the Amazonsmile program. This means that every time a CMH member buys through AmazonSmile, which is the same as Amazon, CMH will receive .5% of our member purchases towards donations. This is a great opportunity to increase contributions to CMH, without spending anything extra.  Please note that members cannot claim tax deductions for this 0.5%, as this is Amazon.com’s contribution, and not the member’s contribution.  For your convenience this link has now been provided on our CMH website.


We encourage all members to save the above link in their “Favorites” and use this link for future purchases. This change does not cost us members anything extra, but will most certainly help with CMH finances – let us remember that every drop counts, and our membership is so large that before we know we will have a bucket full.
