Winner: Cheryl comment #56 chosen by Random.org
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 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.
Visit Macy’s on Facebook and Twitter.
