Macy's 2007 national Thanks For Sharing holiday gifts rewards program reached an unprecedented $13 million to be donated to designated charities across the country. Macy's kicked off this nationwide program in late September, allowing customers to give back to charities in their local communities when they enrolled in the program at their favorite Macy's store and online at macys.com/thanksforsharing. Thanks for Sharing has benefited communities nationwide with more than $37 million in the last five years.

The primary Thanks for Sharing beneficiaries are the American Heart Association's "Go Red for Women" movement to promote heart health for women, as well as charities selected in each region of the country. These regional recipients include organizations such as the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Special Olympics, Ronald McDonald Houses, America's Second Harvest, American Red Cross, United Way and the Boys & Girls Clubs.

"Thanks For Sharing represents a meaningful way for Macy's and its customers to give back to the community through organizations that are doing important work to improve the quality of life. While we are a national company, Macy's is acting locally to support charities in the local communities where our customers and associates live and work," said Terry J. Lundgren, Macy's, Inc. chairman, president and chief executive officer.

"Our program has continued to gain momentum since its inception in 2003, with contributions growing four-fold over the past five years. This year's extraordinary total of $13 million represents a record high."
