I’ve been asked to let you know about a special awareness and fundraising campaign from Macy’s called Come Together, the goal of which is to feed 10 million people suffering from hunger. Come Together invites the public to host special dinners in their homes, asking guests to pledge donations to Feeding America. Two lucky readers will win $25 Macy’s gift cards!
Come Together invites people to host special dinners in their homes and ask 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. I’m always looking for a good excuse to get together with my girlfriends. Saturday evening three dear friends and I got together for our own Come Together celebration.
There are three ways that you can get involved: 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 this Saturday, 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.
