Macy's Shop for a Cause Charity Challenge

July 24, 2017




We're really excited to let you know that we're a part of the Macy's Shop for a Cause Charity Challenge!


It's a friendly fundraising campaign launched by Macy's where local charities across the country compete to raise the most money with the top teams winning grand prize cash donations. A total of $300,000 will be given away to organizations in the Challenge. We're ready to raise as much money as we can so we can win the $100,000 grand prize donation.


Macy's is providing our supporters with an amazing incentive: every donor that donates $5 or more to your organization will receive an exclusive Shop for a Cause Savings Pass before the event. 
Savings passes will be emailed to each donor and a reminder email will be sent by August 10th, the day before Shop for a Cause. Macy’s 12th annual Shop For a Cause will take place Thursday, August 10 – Sunday, August 13 both in-store and online.

Day of the Seafarer

June 25, 2017


Join us on June 25th to celebrate Day of the Seafarer! Each year we recognized June 25th as "Day of the Seafarer", acknowledging the invaluable contributions seafarers make to our daily lives, often at a great personal cost. The 2017 theme is Seafarers Matter (#SeafarersMatter) - a great reminder that seafarers are working behind the scenes to make our global economy possible!


According to IMO, the Day of the Seafarer was first celebrated in 2011, following its establishment by a resolution adopted by the Conference of Parties to the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW), 1978, held in Manila, Philippines, in June 2010, which adopted major revisions to the STCW Convention and Code. The Day of the Seafarer has now been included in the annual list of United Nations Observances.


Please voice your support for seafarers using social networks on June 25th and show them that we care!
