Help Fight for a Cure and Get Money Back When you Shop at Bloomingdales
I am a shopper. I have been my entire life. Sometimes I shop too much but lately I have been doing much better and making wiser choices. One of the stores that I frequent is Bloomingdale's. I find some great things that I think are reasonably priced plus something of quality so I make a purchase or two.
The past several years, companies have been doing something in the month of October that I really love. They donate a portion of proceeds into one of the worthy causes fighting to find a cure for breast cancer. I like when companies give back. And I love even more when they share it with shoppers and doing something for us as well.
This is, of course, as opposed to just flat out asking for a donation which I always find awkward at the register and many times the employee seems like he/she doesn't really like asking anyway. It is not fair to them. It is kind of awkward to make people ask for money who are already spending money in your store. I feel like a jerk if I don't give so I almost always have to mumble how I volunteer at somewhere or another (which I do).
Ok so totally off track there. But anyway go shop at Bloomingdale's because they are giving back in many ways this month.
