A Way to Give

Macy’s and AHOPE for Children are teaming up again this year!

Since 2006, Macy's Shop for a Cause event has partnered with non-profit organizations nationwide to raise more than $34 million for their ongoing charitable efforts. This is your chance to participate in this monumental event on Saturday, October 16, 2010.
Shop for a Cause gives you the opportunity to help AHOPE by purchasing a $5 savings pass for exclusive savings and offers in every Macy's store and a chance to win a $500 gift card, exclusive to each store. As a participating charity, AHOPE for Children keeps 100% of the proceeds from the sale of each savings pass.....but we need your help!

Please support AHOPE and help HIV+ orphans in Ethiopia!

Whether you purchase one savings pass or you purchase 20, 40, 50 etc. you are helping our fundraising efforts immensely. If you choose to purchase several, we are asking that you pay for the savings passes at $5 each and then reimburse yourself as they sell. If you do not sell them all, we are happy to give you back the money owed, so please keep track. Once your money is received, we will send you coupon booklets immediately.

You may do this one of three ways:

Send a check (memo: Macy's) directly to the AHOPE for Children office at:
5023 N. Parkway Calabasas Calabasas, CA 91302
Provide credit card information directly to the AHOPE for Children office at:
Enter credit card information online through Network for Good.
In the designation section, please indicate Macy's.

For further inquiries and/or to purchase your savings passes, please contact Melissa Curtis, Office Administrator at 818-876-9616

With thanks...

To those who have opened their hearts and their homes; we thank you. To those who have given their time and their gifts; we thank you. To those who fight each day, around the world, to reduce the stigma and fear; we thank you. To those who have and continue to walk with AHOPE and the children AHOPE serves; we thank you. It does make a difference.
