Woot. I'm super excited to be covering the Macy's American Icons this week-end in Seattle at Alderwood Mall at 2pm..
What's that? You haven't heard of these events. Well hello! You are invited to join them for all the in-store excitement! As part of their salute to all the things that make us proud to live in the land of the free and the home of the brave, Macy's is hosting multiple American Icons parties across America!
Did you know that Macy’s partners with veterans who served with GotYour 6? You know me. Proud veteran and married to a veteran. Daughter, niece, and sister-in-law of a veteran and aunt of a nephew actively serving. Serving runs deep in our family. So for me, this is a no brainer! Macy’s is proud to partner with those who have served our country alongside Got Your 6 and so am I.
Supporting veterans with family fun here we come!
Even better? On Saturday during the party? Give $3 to support American veterans with Got Your Six and Macy's will thank you with 25% off all day. 100% of your donation will go to Got Your Six.
Each year, approximately 250,000 brave men and women return from service. Got Your 6 works to make sure they have the support and tools they need to become leaders at home in their communities.
And right down my and my teens' alley? The party will include fun patriotic photo opportunities for us to take an #AmericanSelfie to also support our veterans.
|Make sure to take an #AmericanSelfie in one of Macy’s patriotic photo opps in store!|
Show Macy's your #AmericanSelfie and they'll give $1 for each one, up to $250K, to support America's veterans with Got Your 6. Plus, you could be a part of a spectacular moment in Macy's 4th of July Fireworks show on NBC! Click for details...
