Macy's Shop for a Cause Charity Challenge


The Carter Burden Network has been selected to participate in an amazing national campaign called the Macy's Shop for a Cause Charity Challenge. This is a friendly online fundraising campaign running from 7/11 through 8/9.

$300,000 in prize money is up for grabs for local charities across the country - and our mission could certainly use this support! We need your help to take advantage of this awesome opportunity which includes chances to win weekly Bonus Challenges.


How You Can Help: 

1. Join our team as a fundraiser! By setting up a personal fundraising page for the Carter Burden Network (it takes less than 5 minutes!) and reaching out to your own network of friends and family, you can help us make an even bigger impact and get us closer to the grand prize. 

How To Set Up A Fundraising Page: Visit our fundraising page HERE and click 'Fundraise for This Campaign.' If new to Crowdrise, click on the "Don't have an account? Sign Up" link at the bottom and fill in your name, email address and create a password. Then, click the Sign Up box and you will be directed to your personal fundraising page!  On your personal fundraising page, you can click on the Facebook or Twitter icons to share with your network via social media.  Or you can copy and paste the link from your personal fundraising page and email it to your network.  

2. Starting July 11th at 12pm through August 9th at 2pm, share your personal fundraising page with your personal network. If you don't have a personal fundraising page, donate $5 or more through the Carter Burden Network's fundraising page and get your own Macy's Savings Pass! Visit our fundraising page HERE and click 'Donate'. 

Everyone who donates $5 or more will receive a Macy's Savings Pass good for up to 25% off select items, valid in-store or online!
