We recently received our latest donation from Amazon.com, thanks to thoughtful friends of St. Matts. You can help too.
Just go to Amazon.com and type "smile" into the search box and select the AmazonSmile icon and fill out the form and select St. Matthews Church in the donate section--and that's all there is to it. For nearly every purchase on Smile.Amazon.com (exact duplicate of Amazon.com) Amazon will donate to your charity of choice 0.5% of your purchase. Prices are not higher to pay for the donation and you can select most of the AmazonMarketplace sellers too.
Amazon hopes it will be a win-win-win for all of us: you, St. Matthews, and Amazon. And then, next time be sure to change your Amazon bookmark to Smile.Amazon.
