Giving Assistant is similar to AmazonSmile, but for a much wider range of retailers. It explains itself this way: "(1) Millions of users shop at 1,835 of the biggest online retailers; (2) Those shoppers earn cash back on their purchases; (3) They donate their cash back directly to your organization." Therefore, if you sign up with Giving Assistant, you will be able to donate to the Mission while shopping!

Welzoo makes it possible to donate to the Mission just by surfing the internet! To use it, sign up for the website at www.welzoo.com, choose the Mission of Maitreya as your charity, and make Welzoo your homepage. From then on, every time you open your browser, you will be taken to a random site based on your selected interests and the Mission will receive a $.03 donation (once per day maximum). The arrangement is free for both you as the supporter and the Mission as the nonprofit; Welzoo gets the money through sometimes showing you homepages that companies pay to be in the rotation.
We think Welzoo is a great idea and another way to bring free money into the Mission - one person using the site daily for a year will provide about $11 extra for the Mission's use, and enough people doing so will add up quickly!
To sign up with the Mission already chosen as your nonprofit, use this referral link: www.welzoo.com/join/eternal-divine-/ahxsG60
If anyone personally solicits you for donations, please be aware that there are a great number of unscrupulous people who commit fraud and theft regularly throughout the world. It is up to each one of us to be ever vigilant when considering a donation to another individual. No individual is ever authorized to ask for money on behalf of the Mission. We have provided enough ways to donate to the Mission directly.
Please notify us immediately if someone seems to be directly asking for money from you on behalf of the Mission (especially if they insist and you are annoyed, or you feel you are being taken advantage of). As brothers and sisters in God (good people) we are obligated to protect one another from harm. By exposing such people, you do what a true Divine would do: You expose the thieves and purify the earth one step closer to perfection. Also, this will allow us to alert others of the problem, etc.
The greatest way to assist those who need our help is when a person makes a general donation and does not know who the recipient will be, and the recipient does not know who gave the charity. There is no ego involved and no emotion other than the act of giving and the act of receiving. Therefore we recommend giving all donations and/or charity directly to the Mission rather than to individuals. You can specify if you want a donation to go to a specific person or project.
Only give to the Mission if you trust it and Know in your Heart of Hearts that we will use it for God's Purpose.
Remember: No individual is authorized to solicit funds for the Mission of Maitreya to go directly to them. If you give your money (property, etc.) to such individuals, you are doing it of your own accord!
Giving tithes purifies the remaining 90% of your money that God has generously left for you. Therefore, tithes and donations to the Mission are not refundable. According to Scripture we cannot refund your tithes (and donations) as if we do, we will be going against God's Will. So think hard before sending tithes and donations to the Mission, as once it is donated we cannot return any of it back to you. (The only exception to this might be if you are destitute and we decide to help you with financing, but this would be considered independent support from the Mission, not a refund.)
All thanks to God for everything we receive to do His Will!
