This year Macy’s will host their 5th annual "Shop For A Cause" charity shopping event, at all Macy’s stores and on macys.com on Saturday, Oct. 16, 2010. "Shop For A Cause" has raised more than $34 million for local charities across the country since 2006. Macy’s is once again looking forward to help make a positive impact in different communities.
Through Shop For A Cause, Macy’s provides participating organizations with shopping passes to sell for $5 each. Organizations keep 100 percent of every ticket sold. Pass holders will enjoy 20 percent or 10 percent off most regular, sale and clearance purchases all day, plus 25 percent off one regular, sale or clearance item in men's, women's or kids apparel or accessories.
By purchasing a shopping pass to the event, customers will be supporting their favorite cause while enjoying a day of spectacular discounts, entertainment, special events and a chance to win a $500 shopping spree.
Shop For A Cause passes sold in Macy’s stores across the country will benefit Feeding America, The Family Violence Prevention Fund and other designated charities. Passes sold online at www.macys.com on Oct. 16, 2010 will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.
