Miami, Florida, July 13, 2015-- Macy’s will partner with Badazz Foundation 501c3 to invite customers to participate in Macy’s 10th annual national “Shop For A Cause” charity shopping event on August 29, 2015. Customers can purchase shopping passes from Badazz Foundation now. Macy’s “Shop For A Cause” is a unique one-day-only shopping event created to support local charities’ fundraising efforts. Since 2006, the program has helped raise tens of millions of dollars for charities across the country.
“Macy’s is proud to invite our customers to join us in giving back to causes that make a difference both locally and nationally,” said Martine Reardon, Macy’s chief marketing officer. “For the last nine years, Macy’s Shop For A Cause program has raised many millions of dollars for thousands of charities across the country. We look forward to offering our customers and associates an easy way to make a positive impact in our communities while enjoying great savings at Macy’s.”
Macy’s has provided Badazz Foundation with shopping passes to sell for $5 each. Badazz Foundation will keep 100 percent of every shopping pass it sells. The more Badazz Foundation sells, the more money it will raise!
By purchasing a shopping pass from Badazz Foundation, customers support volunteer efforts to rebuild abandoned and blighted properties in Miami turning them into beautiful so-called "Badazz Crybz," 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.
"Macy’s has shown time after time it is a philanthropic corporation that values community and the importance of giving back,” said Badazz Foundation Founder Carol Storms. “We are proud to be a partner in the 10th annual Shop For A Cause,” she said.
