Macy's gift card giveaway!

Photobucket
I really like shopping at Macy’s, especially when they have great sales. I got a Panini Grill for $20 there and I love it. It is great for making Cuban sandwiches. I really am impressed with all of the charitable things that Macy’s does as well.

Right now they are taking part in Coming Together, Cooking for a Cause. The project is aimed to feed 10 million people that are plagued with hunger. Macy's is working with Feed America on this campaign. I think this is a wonderful cause. I think that everyone should help.

Here is how YOU can help:

1. Host a Dinner Party. Get a group of your friends and family together and enjoy a special meal. Instead of the normal hostess gift of wine why not suggest everyone to donate. Macy’s will match you dollar for dollar. You can find delicious recipes and party planning tools here.You can even send the invitations from the site. It is really simple and such a great cause.

2. You can give. Just go to your local Macy's and donate some money right at the cash register. You would be surprised to find out that one dollar will feed SEVEN people. A dollar really isn’t much. A dollar gets you a candy bar at the gas station. That one dollar would fill seven people’s stomachs with food.

3. Shop! On October 17th 2009, When Macy's hosts a national Shop For A Cause day you can go to your local Macy’s and spend $5 on a ticket for special savings that day. A portion of the ticket sales will go to Feed America. Not only is it a great cause but, you could really save some money and help those in need. It is a win win situation. It would be great if there was something big you had your eye on.

I am going to donate a few dollars the next time I go to Macy’s to help.

To help spread the word about Coming Together, Cooking For A Cause, I have a $25 Macy’s Gift card to giveaway to one lucky reader.

  32. I would love to host a dinner but my DS reminded with a broken arm it probably wouldn't turn out right and it would be easier to simply donate some money the next time I'm at Macy's. Most likely the 17th since they already are having an event.
