We are in the process of building a brand new temple over the next few years. We will need all the funding we can get to support the construction costs and make this project a grand success. If you like to shop on Amazon, JSMW has registered with AmazonSmile where 0.5% of your shopping expenses get donated to the JSMW temple fund! This is a great way to support the new temple effort as you look forward to your holiday shopping. Here’s how to do it:

  • Click on this link and login. Once you get at that link, it is very important to login to your Amazon account, using your regular Amazon username and password combination. This will register your preferred charity as “Jain Society of Metropolitan Washington.”
  • Whenever you go to shop on Amazon, use smile.amazon.com, or use the link in Step-2 listed above before doing your shopping and a percentage of your final price will benefit the JSMW temple fund!
  • Remember the final price of your purchase will stay the same, but only by using “smile.amazon.com” will JSMW get a portion of the final amount.

Every little bit will make a big difference as we progress towards temple construction. This will be a combined Shwetambar/Digambar temple and will help preserve Jainism for a long time to come in the DC metro area. Thank you for the support!!

We take this opportunity to thank Pathik Shah and Pinkesh Gala for setting this program for us.
