)-- Macy’s will partner with The Joseph Project to invite customers to participate in Macy’s sixth annual “Shop for a Cause” charity shopping event. Macy’s 2011 Shop for a Cause will take place on August 27, 2011; customers can purchase tickets now from The Joseph Project. Macy’s Shop for a Cause is a unique one-day-only shopping event created to support local charities’ fundraising efforts, which has helped raised more than $38 million for charities across the country since 2006.
“Macy’s is committed to giving back to our local communities. Our annual Shop for a Cause Program, which has raised more than $38 million for local and national charities in the past five years, is meaningful for us because it gives our customers and associates an opportunity to give back to the local charities, schools and non-profits that matter a great deal to them,” said Martine Reardon, Macy’s Executive Vice President of Marketing. “We are proud to offer our customers an easy way to make a positive difference while enjoying great savings at Macy’s.”
Macy’s has provided The Joseph Project with shopping passes to sell for $5 each. The organization will keep 100% of every ticket it sells. The more The Joseph Project sells; the more money it will raise.
By purchasing a shopping pass to the event from The Joseph Project, customers support the education and tools necessary to help others achieve a self-sustaining lifestyle while enjoying a day of spectacular discounts, entertainment, special events. Pass holders will enjoy special discounts on most regular, sale and clearance purchases all day. Some exclusions apply.
“We are proud to join Macy’s Shop For a Cause campaign this year. Your donations will help provide others with the information and tools they need to establish a “permanent culture” of success in their lives. Whether it’s helping someone to establish a self-sustaining garden, providing financial tools, addressing relational issues, or spiritual warfare, The Joseph Project is here to help.” Ed Conway CEO
