Set your calendar reminder right now, in case you already haven’t got the date marked, Mother’s Day is coming Sunday May 13th. To help you celebrate, Macy’s has a free deal that you will want to take advantage of, both to honor your Mother and to help charity. This Mother’s Day, join Macy’s in their “Thank a Mom Movement” which celebrates mom and allows you to select which charity you want Macy’s to donate $3 (up to a total of $400,000) to in her honor. This is a great idea and a win for everyone. Big props to Macy’s for incorporating giving into their campaign.
Just like last year, Macy’s has partnered with five charities in honor of mothers. To participate, simply head to facebook.com/macys through Mother’s Day and send free Mother’s Day e-cards to the special moms in your life. The Macy’s campaign allows you to select one of Macy’s five partnering charities to support simply by sending a (free) e-card to the amazing moms in your life. Here are the five charities.
– American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women® movement
– Futures Without Violence
– Make-A-Wish Foundation®
– National Park Foundation
– Reading Is Fundamental
