“Summertime…and the livin is easy”

This is the 4th summer of the EOR blog–the 4th summer of EOR, and I can’t ever remember a busier one.  From the art contest (please send your art soon!), to the voting for The Classy Award (please vote soon!), to Shop 4 a Cause, and the kickoff of Project Gena and 50 other items, things are really hopping for EOR!

“Wait,” you say!  “I know about the art contest (I’m mailing a masterpiece to you RIGHT NOW), and I’ve voted for the Classy thing-a-ma-jig, (and told every person I know about it), but Shop 4 a Cause?  ”

What is Shop For A Cause?

On Saturday, August 27, 2011, Macy’s will host its 6th annual Shop for a Cause benefiting charities nationwide.

Non-profit organizations with a 501(c) or 170(c)1 tax exempt status, school booster groups and religious organizations are eligible to be part of our fun and effective way to raise funds and awareness for your cause.

How Does My Organization Benefit?
All participating non-profit organizations check out special shopping passes and sell them for $5 each. You keep 100% of the proceeds. (woo hoo–added by Paige!)

How Does the Customer Benefit?
When your guests Shop for a Cause on Saturday, August 27, 2011, they’ll receive 25% off* on regular, sale and clearance merchandise, including designer brands you love, throughout the store. And, they will be eligible to win a $500 gift card, no purchase necessary.

Two years ago, one of our favorite Ethiohio families won the $500.00 gift card.  One is given at each Macy’s location!

Macy’s suggests that we offer the coupon for the $5 fee, but also that we offer it as an incentive for other donations we receive.  The monies raised from the sale of Shop 4 a Cause coupons will help us finish the building project at FOVC-Ethiop;  as a further incentive, any person who makes a donation to EOR between now and August 27th will receive a coupon as well.

25% makes back-to-school shopping a whole lot easier to finish!

Macy’s Shop for a Cause makes finishing the building project at FOVC-Ethiopia a whole lot easier too!
Send your donation of $5 or more to:

Ethiopia Orphan Relief, Inc. 447 Greenglade Avenue. Worthington Ohio  43085  and I’ll rush a coupon out to you.

Online donations of $10 or more can be made here.  

Please include a mailing address with your donation so that you too can Shop for a Cause!

Paige (who will have a large supply of coupons on hand at every playgroup, Ethiohio dinner, and fencing practice–but I bet you already knew that–smarties!)
