Come+Together with Macy’s and WIN
I’m all about bringing attention to those in need right now. In addition to participating in the $30 Challenge this week, I wanted to share another great campaign you can support. I know you’ve seen the commercials for this but just in case you’ve missed it – or been so dazzled by the star power in the commercial that you didn’t hear the message — here’s the lowdown.
Macy’s has launched a massive campaign called COME TOGETHER. In an effort to raise awareness, money & feed 10 million people suffering from hunger & I’m happy to help spread the word.
How are they going to do this? They’re going to do it by involving the public (that’s you & me) They will even match individual donations (until their goal of $10 mil is reached)
WOW, how cool is that? These donations will go to great cause – FEED AMERICA! I KNOW you’re wondering how you can help?
Well I’m glad you asked… COME TOGETHER invites the public to rally around the cause by hosting special dinners in their homes and asking their guests to pledge a donation to Feeding America. In return, Macy’s will match these donations dollar-for-dollar until the total goal of 10 million meals is reached.
To get involved the public may participate in three easy ways: Host, Give and Shop.
- HOST- Friends and families across the country can host dinner parties from casual to formal, send invitations and manage party details including themes and recipes on www.macys.com/cometogether. In lieu of bringing traditional host gifts, guests are suggested to make a donation to Feeding America.
- GIVE- Donate $1 directly at any Macy’s register, one dollar provides dinner for seven.
- SHOP- Macy’s customers can shop for the cause and get special savings in-store on October 17, when Macy’s hosts a national Shop For A Cause day. A portion of the $5 in-store ticket sales will benefit Feeding America.
Help the cause and be entered to win
In return for spreadin the word about this fabulous cause, the great people at MACY’S have graciously donated two – $25.00 GIFT GIFTCARDS for bell’alimento to give away. Ah, well who wouldn’t want one of those (would def help out in these tough times now, wouldn’t it)? All you need to do to enter is leave a comment below letting me know of one of YOUR LOCAL food organizations that helps to feed the hungry. Yep, that’s it! Easy Peasy.
Then, two winners will be randomly chosen (probably by my cutey patutey Bruiser himself. He’s quite talented you know) on FRIDAY evening (EST – because yes that’s where I live), October 16th! The gift cards will be mailed directly to the winners.
Here’s some legal schmegal: Please NOTE that: Goods can only be mailed to US addresses & Gift Cards can ONLY be used in Macy’s US stores (sorry to all my fabulous readers outside the US, you know I still love ya! Really I do!). And to keep things fair, one comment per person please (multiple comments will disqualify you so play nice! I don’t want to have to do that but you know I will – wink wink!)
