Macy’s Shop for a Cause

28 08 2008

Here’s another event designed to both save you money and donate to a charitable cause! On September 20th, you can head over to Macy’s for the 3rd Annual “Shop for A Cause” day. Various charitable organizations are selling $5 savings passes which allow you to save between 10-20 percent on store merchandise. 100% of proceeds from the passes will benefit the organizations. In the past two years, this event has helped to raise over $19 million!

Now, I’m not sure of all the participating organizations, but I know that the Chicagoland affiliate of Dress for Success is selling booklets. If you would like to support Dress for Success, send an e-mail to Laura Melcher at

If you aren’t able to purchase an advance booklet, just head to Macy’s on September 20th, and purchase the booklet then. The sales will benefit Macy’s national charities. For more information, head on over to!
