Amazon Smile Program

If you shop on Amazon, you can support the Himalayan Stove Project/Paul Basch Memorial Foundation by signing up for Amazon Smile (at no cost to you, and a nice benefit to us). Follow this link to sign up. Then when you shop on Amazon (through the Amazon Smile page – which is linked to your “regular” Amazon page – same wish list and everything else) – the Amazon Foundation makes a contribution to our project.


These wonderful sponsors have made (and continue to make) generous contributions to support our efforts.
