Macy’s invites customers to participate in its eighth annual Shop for a Cause charity event on Aug. 24. Shop for a Cause is a unique, one-day-only shopping event, created to support the fundraising efforts of local charities.
In addition to thousands of local charities selling savings passes across the country, Macy’s has designated March of Dimes, the leading nonprofit organization in support of pregnancy and baby health, as its national beneficiary of all proceeds of sales of Shop for a Cause savings passes in Macy’s stores and on macys.com.
By purchasing a $5 Shop for a Cause savings pass, customers will be supporting their favorite causes and will receive 25 percent off on regular, sale and clearance merchandise, as well as 10 percent off electrics, electronics, watches, furniture, mattresses and area rugs in the store all day Saturday, Aug. 24. Customers also are eligible to win a $500 gift card.
Each participating nonprofit organization will keep 100 percent of every savings pass it sells.
“Over the past eight years, Macy’s annual Shop for a Cause event has raised more than $45 million for local and national charities, providing our associates and customers an opportunity to give back to those organizations that touch their hearts and lives each and every day,” said Martine Reardon, Macy’s chief marketing officer. “We are honored to partner with March of Dimes as our national in-store beneficiary to offer our customers an easy and convenient way to make a positive difference in the lives of others, while enjoying great savings at Macy’s.”
New this year, Macy’s is partnering with the March of Dimes mobile-giving partners Mobile Commons and the BBB Mobile Giving Foundation to allow customers to purchase savings passes conveniently using their smart phones.
