By chance I came across an advertisement put out by Macy's called, "Macy's Shop for a Cause" They were calling all charities who wanted to raise funds for their nonprofit organizations to participate. So I applied and when word came that CHOOSE TO CARE was accepted, we were full of gratitude. It is an opportunity to gain some much needed funds so that we can continue to give a brand new pair of shoes for those children and young adult in need.
CHOOSE TO CARE will sell tickets to the Macy's Shop For A Cause event which will take place on August 27, 2011. The tickets will sell for $5 and the ticket buyers will receive special discounts at all Macy's and on macy's.com on August 27,2011. The good news is that the organization keeps 100% of the proceeds. We will keep you posted on how to purchase tickets.

"People are always blaming their circumstances
for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances.
The people who get on in this world are the people
who get up and look for the circumstances they want
and if they can't find them, make them."
