In support of the March of Dimes, Macy's is offering one of the best deals of the year this Saturday, August, 23rd with their one day event "Shop For A Cause." All you have to do is purchase a $5 savings pass at ANY Macy's register in ANY Macy's department, and you'll receive 25% off on ALL regular, sale and clearance merchandise ... including designer brands! Oh, and your savings pass is even good throughout the rest of the store as well! Just flash your savings pass and you will earn 10% off electronics, furniture, mattresses and area rugs. You can shamelessly slide your credit card knowing that 100% of every savings pass purchased goes to support research and programs that help babies start healthy lives and women have healthy pregnancies. Believe me, this year's "Shop For A Cause" savings pass is worth more than gold. How do I know? Because Team His Middle Name was there to kick off the event at our local Macy's!!!
As we left Macy's after the employee rally, I had a quiet moment to reflect on how in the world we ended up being apart of something so much bigger than us. Who would have guessed that when I gave birth to my tiny two pound son that I would be where I am today? I actually shared that sentiment with the employees - how being a preemie parent thrusts you into a position of advocacy - even if for your child alone. To that I received many head nods and understanding glances, but nothing more powerful than what the Macy's store manager Miss C. said to me. She said, "That's why "Shop For A Cause" is so important. It gives you a chance to be a parent to your son and gives us a chance to do what we do best so that others can have the same." If that's not a great reason to shop Saturday, then I don't know what is.
