NATIONAL RETAILERS GIVING BACK THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!

For the last 6 months I have loved sharing with you unique, awesome companies that give back in amazing ways.  During the holidays, I have found that nationally know retailers want to continue the holiday tradition of generosity by giving back to specific charities. So, here are a few of my favorites I found from retailers we all know. 

KIDS

Macy's is back this year for the eighth season of its Believe holiday campaign. Macy’s is selling the Wish Writer stylus to be used on the brand's app, where kids can participate in digital holiday-themed activities such as building a snowman and decorating cookies. A portion of sales will go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Also available at Macy's is the classic story “Yes, Virginia” illustrated storybook and animated special DVD. 10% of the purchase price of each book and DVD sold will be donated to Make-A-Wish.
