Macy’s helps local charity raise funds and awareness for important cause

SCOTTSDALE, AZ – AUGUST 24, 2013 - Macy’s will partner with Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona to invite customers to participate in Macy’s eighth annual national “Shop For A Cause” charity shopping event on August 24, 2013. Customers can purchase shopping passes from the Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona now.  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 $46 million for charities across the country since 2006.


“Over the past eight years, Macy’s annual ‘Shop For A Cause’ has raised more than $46 million for local and national charities, providing our associates and customers an opportunity to give back to those organizations that touch their hearts each and every day,” said Martine Reardon, Macy’s chief marketing officer.  “Giving back is a key component of Macy’s culture. We are honored to offer our customers an easy and convenient way to make a positive difference in their communities and in the lives of others, while enjoying great savings at Macy’s.”


Macy’s has provided Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona with shopping passes to sell for $5 each. Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona will keep 100 percent of every shopping pass it sells. The more Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona sells, the more money it will raise!


By purchasing a shopping pass from Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona, customers support the many service based programs of an organization that ‘leads the fight to stop seizures, find a cure and overcome challenges created by epilepsy’, while enjoying a day of spectacular discounts, entertainment and special events at Macy’s. Pass holders will receive special discounts on most regular, sale and clearance purchases all day, but some exclusions apply.


“We couldn’t be more excited to spread epilepsy and seizure awareness in such a stylish fashion. It’s an honor to partner with Macy’s on this charitable event and we look forward to our community coming out to Shop For A Cause!” Nicky Comer, Marketing & Development Manager at Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona.
