Macy's announced that it has raised $4
million for March of Dimes and various
charitable organizations across the country as a
result of the generous participation of customers
nationwide in its 2012 "Shop For A Cause"
Now in its seventh year, "Shop
For A Cause" is Macy's unique, one-day-only
shopping event that was created to support local and
national charities' fundraising efforts. Macy's
designated March of Dimes, the leading non-profit
organization for pregnancy and baby health, as its
national beneficiary of all proceeds of sales of
"Shop For A Cause" savings passes in-stores and on
macys.com. To date,
Macy's Shop For A Cause has raised $46
for thousands of charities across the country.
"‘Shop For A Cause'
represents a meaningful way for Macy's and its
customers to give back to the community by raising
funds for organizations that do important work
locally and nationally," said
Martine Reardon, Macy's chief marketing
officer. "We continue to be inspired by the millions
of customers who support this program, and are proud
to announce that $4 million
was raised as a result of this year's efforts."
This year, more than 7,000
local charities signed up to participate. By
purchasing $5 "Shop For A Cause"
savings passes from these organizations, customers
supported their favorite causes and received 25
percent off on regular, sale and clearance
merchandise, as well as 10 percent off watches,
furniture, mattresses and area rugs in the store all
Saturday, Aug. 25, and were eligible to win a $500
gift card. (See savings pass for discount exclusions
and restrictions. No purchase necessary to
participate in sweepstakes. Official rules and
alternate means of entry for sweepstakes are
available at all Macy's locations.)
