Macy’s hosts seventh annual ‘Shop for a Cause’ on August 25th

Macy’s is inviting customers to participate in its seventh annual “Shop for A Cause” charity shopping event. This fabulous event will be presented at all Macy’s stores nationwide and on macys.com on Saturday, August 25, 2012.

“Shop for A Cause” is Macy’s unique, one-day-only shopping event that was created to support local and national charities’ fundraising efforts, and has helped raise more than $42 million for charitable organizations across the country since 2006. Macy’s has 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.

This year, more than 6,000 local charities have signed up to participate. By purchasing $5 “Shop For A Cause” savings passes from these organizations, customers support their favorite causes and receive 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 day Saturday, August 25, and are 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.)

Each non-profit organization participating in the shopping event will keep 100 percent of every savings pass it sells. For a list of all participating charities, please visit macys.com/shopforacause.

Savings passes sold at Macy’s stores and macys.com on August 25 will benefit March of Dimes, which will receive 100 percent of the proceeds of every savings pass sold by Macy’s. Shopping passes are only sold by macys.com on August 25, but customers may purchase shopping passes in advance at all Macy’s stores now, and by purchasing a shopping pass in store, customers can support March of Dimes while enjoying a day of spectacular discounts, entertainment, and special events.
