Come Together With Macy’s {A Giveaway!}

285 Comments 10 October 2009


Did you know that it is estimated that 1 in 10 households in America goes hungry or is threatened by the possibility of hunger? (via Oakland Institute) This is an unacceptable statistic and one that we can fight together to change. We need to help fund this effort, but we also need to help raise awareness. Seriously, 1 in 10 homes? Have you ever considered that you may have come across someone in your every day life that doesn’t have enough to eat?

Macy’s has launched COME TOGETHER, an innovative awareness and fundraising campaign that aims to feed 10 million people suffering from hunger. This campaign invites the public to host special dinners in their homes and asks their guests to pledge a donation to Feeding America. The best part is that for every dollar raised, Macy’s will match it in kind, until the goal of 10 million meals is reached!

Ready to get involved?! Good! There are three different ways to participate, and all of them help!

1) Hostess with the Mostess! Host a party for your family and friends – think of it as a dinner party for a good cause! You pick how formal or laid-back you want it to be – the point is just to “come together” for a good cause! Instead of bring a gift for the host, suggest that your guests make a donation to Feeding America. Plus, you can manage all of your details online!

2) Give a little bit! You can donate $1 at any Macy’s register, and your dollar will provide dinner for SEVEN people. I can’t think of many better uses for a dollar, can you?

3) Shop ’til you drop! On October 17th, shop your little heart out because you will get special in-store savings during Macy’s national Shop For A Cause day. A portion of the $5 in-store ticket sales will benefit Feeding America.

To celebrate this fantastic initiative, Macy’s has offered to giveaway two $25 gift cards to two very lucky Chic Shopper Chick readers! To enter, leave a comment below. To score an extra entry, tweet this by clicking the button at the top of this page! Good luck!

This contest ends on October 18, 2009 at 11:59pm CST. US entries only. Winners will be chosen via

    I had a great time shopping at Macy’s during yesterday’s event — I found some great bargains on jeans, shirts, and winter gear, and I felt even better knowing I was doing my small part to help an excellent cause. Thanks for blogging about the event, and thanks for the giveaway!

  41. Susan Smith says:

    Sounds like a great idea!

  42. amy delong says:

    I donated at the register

  45. Helen S says:

    I love Macys!

  46. Patti Sherman says:

    I shopped till I dropped!

  47. Joanna Smith says:

    I was so impressed with Macy’s when I first saw that they were getting involved in this great cause. It really warmed my heart and made me want to support the cause and support Macy’s as a customer. So much so, that we have been shopping more at Macy’s and donated $1 at the Macy’s register on 4 different occasions. When I think of all the different ways that people can squander their money and they do, and then to think that just a single $1 donation at the Macy’s register will provide dinner for SEVEN people is such an incredible analogy! We need to squander less an donate more, that is the moral to this story! Thanks so much for the chance to enter.

  48. jen gersch says:

    I was glad to take part in Shop for a Cause. They has quite a few shoppers at our local store, I hope this was a successful progam for those who are in need.
