On Saturday, October 16th, you can tackle some of your Christmas shopping at a discount while making a difference in the community during Macy’s Shop For A Cause event. This is my kind of shopping event!
For only $5, you can purchase a saving pass which will allow you to enjoy 20 percent or 10 percent off most regular, sale and clearance purchases all day, plus 25 percent off one regular, sale or clearance item in men’s, women’s or kids apparel or accessories. All of the proceeds from savings passes will go to non-profit organizations in your community and across the country. Any non-profit can sign up to sell savings passes and each organization will keep 100% of the proceeds from the sales passes they sell and you get to choose which organization your money goes to!!! You can find a list of participating organizations here (and if your favorite school or non-profit is not on the list, make sure that they sign up next year to be included). Last year, Shop For A Cause raised over $6 million for charities across the country and I’m proud to say I contributed to that!
Who knew shopping could be so philanthropic?
