We are going GREEN!    

Green Tips for Computers
  • Turn off your computer when not in use. It doesn’t hurt it. Really!
  • Check computer settings for standby mode—computers should be set to go into standby mode when left unused for periods of time.
  • Keep computer equipment updated; current new computers and monitors are more energy efficient than those more than a few years old.
  • When replacing computer equipment, donate the old equipment to a charity or nonprofit if possible. If not, take it to an electronics recycling facility. See Where to Recycle Computers in Canada and Computer Recycling in the U.S. 

Amazon Smile Program 

Similar to Benevity, Amazon supports local and national charity organizations when their customers shop with them. So we have recently signed up for Amazon smile, which will give a small percentage to our church when someone uses Amazon smile to make any purchases. 

What is Smile Amazon? 

Amazon Smile was created by Amazon as a way for those who shop Amazon to give to their favorite charity. Every time someone enrolled in Amazon Smile shops 0.5% goes to the charity of their choice. Amazon Smile is the same Amazon you know and love – Same products, same prices, same service. 

How to use Smile Amazon? 

When you are going to make a purchase in, instead of using, please use or goto and search for “amazon smile” (without quotes). 

How to select Mar Thoma Church of Silicon Valley as your favorite AmazonSmile Charitable Organization?
