What’s better than going shopping for clothing? Getting a discount for giving away old clothes or donating to charity at the same time. Check out the details of Macy’s 7th annual Shop for a Cause Event going on nationwide. Written by Juliet Rocco
On the road again: This past weekend, I was driving back up to Rochester from New Jersey and listening to the radio. Usually I listen to my iPod for the 5 hour drive, but it’s been on the fritz because I dropped it on the concrete while I was running once. I had to deal with searching for radio stations the whole way up. First World problems, I know.
Donate, maybe? I was happy to find a station with a commercial-free hour so I just stuck with that (even if Call Me Maybe played 3 times). While I was listening, I heard one of the radio hosts talking about ‘Shop for a Cause’, the charitable event that Macy’s was hosting.
“Donate your old clothes, and get a 25% off anything in the store coupon.”
Here’s how it works:
“On Saturday, August 25, 2012, Macy’s will host its 7th annual Shop For A Cause benefiting charities nationwide. Since 2006, Shop For A Cause has raised more than $42 million for charities across the country. This is your opportunity to be part of the excitement.”
If you buy a $5 ticket online or in-store, Macy’s will donate 100% of the proceeds to the Wounded Warrior Project, Feeding America and Family Violence Prevention Fund.
The Shop For A Cause offer is an all-day shopping pass for 25% off regular, sale and clearance merchandise throughout the store as well as 10% off furniture, mattresses and area rugs. The pass is valid in all Macy’s stores on Saturday, August 25, 2012.
