Youll gladly shop for a pair of shoes, a better deal, even for a potential mate, but when was the last time you headed to the mall to carry out a completely unselfish mission? And we dont mean that trip to the dollar store for your co-workers Christmas gift. If you cant remember when you last plunked down some cash for charity, and even if you drop a dime in a homeless mans cup every day, join millions of Americans this Saturday when they Shop for a Cause at Macys locations across the nation.
The formula is simple: Macys gives tickets to charities, the charities sell the tickets to you, and you hit the mall to shop till you drop while getting either 10 or 20 percent off of your purchases. The organizations keep 100 percent of the ticket sales and you get to do something good for your community, because they dont call it retail therapy for nothing. Were hitting up the Macys at Dadeland Mall, 7675 N. Kendall Dr., Miami. But you can buy tickets at your nearest Macys or at www.macys.com.
