Shop For A Cause by Macy's
Oct '09
Macy's announced its fourth Annual "Shop For a Cause" charity shopping event, which has raised nearly $28 million for charities across the country since 2006. This year's Shop For A Cause event will take place at all Macy's stores and on macys.com on Saturday, October 17, 2009.

"Shop For A Cause is an incredibly special way for us to support important causes and celebrate our connections to our local communities," said Peter Sachse, Macy's Chief Marketing Officer. "Through this program, we have been able to raise nearly $28 million over the last few years for the local charities that matter most to our communities and customers. It is a compelling way to support charitable work across the country and will be particularly meaningful for our charity partners this year."

For "Shop for A Cause," Macy's donates shopping passes to participating charities in all of its markets across the country. The shopping passes are then sold by the charitable organizations for $5 each in the weeks leading up to the event. The organizations keep 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of the shopping pass.

Pass holders can redeem their passes at any Macy's store or online at macys.com on October 17th to receive 20 percent off most men's, women's, kids and accessories merchandise, 10 percent off most home items, and 25 percent off a single item (exclusions apply, see actual pass for rules). Shopping passes are also sold at Macy's stores from September 1, 2009 through October 17, 2009, and at macys.com on October 17th, 2009, with 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of the pass to benefit designated charitable organizations including Feeding America and local food banks as part of Macy's national "Come Together" campaign that aims to provide 10 million meals for the hungry and to other designated charities.

Macy's, the largest retail brand of Macy's, Inc., delivers fashion and affordable luxury to customers at more than 800 locations in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam. Macy's stores and macys.com offer distinctive assortments including the most desired family of exclusive and fashion brands for him, her and home.
