We want to tell you about a new fundraising effort that our group is participating in — Macy’s 5th annual Shop for a Cause on October 16, 2010. If you’ve never heard of it, Shop for a Cause is Macy’s national charity shopping day that offers the opportunity for local nonprofit organizations to raise funds in their communities. Since 2006, Shop for a Cause has helped raise more than $34 million for thousands of charity partners.
How it works:
Macy’s invites charities to sign up, sell $5 tickets and keep 100% of the proceedsof every ticket they sell. That’s right, for every $5 Macy’s pass we sell, the entire $5 goes to our group.
Customers purchasing tickets benefit by receiving incredible storewide shopping savings all day on October 16, 2010. On October 16, Macy’s also hosts special events, prizes and other in-store excitement.
Shop for a Cause tickets have two offers: Macy’s guests are entitled to exclusive 20% or 10%* savings in most departments all day long plus an additional 25%* off a single purchase. That savings is on sale, clearance and regular-priced items. Shop for a Cause is special because you can save on most items throughout the store and online. In addition, customers will be eligible to win a $500 gift card from their local store, no purchase necessary.
So for the price of $5, you and your friends, family and neighbors can donate to a very worthy cause (our group!) as well as shop & save at the Macy’s at the University Park Mall and online. That means that if you spend more than $25, your savings pass is well worth it!
Colleen is the contact person for the event, so if you want to purchase some passes or have any questions, feel free to email her at email@example.com. Here is a link to the Macy’s website http://www.macysinc.com/shopforacause/
Anyone can shop at the store that day but in order to get the savings and for our group to benefit, please buy your pass from Colleen!
