NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Macy’s will go red for women’s heart health again this February in honor
of American Heart Month. As the founding national sponsor of the
American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement, Macy’s will
offer limited-edition merchandise and promotions to benefit Go Red For
Women. Since 2004, Macy’s customers and associates have raised $60
million to support the fight against heart disease in women, and over
that time, 293 more lives have been saved every day from heart disease
and stroke, according to the American Heart Association.

Go Red With Macy’s

Cardiovascular diseases kill nearly one in three women each year, but 80
percent of cardiac and stroke events may be prevented with education and
action. That is why Macy’s encourages customers and associates to band
together to prevent and fight cardiovascular diseases by participating
in Go Red with Macy’s from Wednesday, Feb. 1 to Monday, Feb. 6.
Customers can wear red or purchase the official Red Dress pin for $3 to
receive 25 percent off on a great selection of items storewide, plus 15
percent off select home, fine and fashion jewelry, and sale and
clearance watches. Exclusions and restrictions apply. One hundred
percent of the pin sales will benefit Go Red For Women. Macy’s
associates will also be wearing red in-store to create further awareness
for the pin sale and celebrate National Wear Red Day on Feb. 3.

Merchandise That Gives Back

During the month of February, Macy’s offers customers additional ways to
support this worthy cause through merchandise that gives back, including
three limited-edition red dresses by Kensie ($99.00), Thalia ($89.50)
and Calvin Klein ($134.00). For all three styles, 10 percent of the
purchase price from Feb. 1 through Feb. 28 will be donated to Go Red For
Women. To go red and get fit in style, Macy’s also offers exclusive
Ideology active wear, which includes four graphic t-shirts where 10
percent of the purchase price will be donated to Go Red For Women. The
dresses and active wear will be available in most stores and online at

“Macy’s has been committed to supporting heart health for more than a
decade,” said Holly Thomas, group vice president of cause marketing at
Macy’s. “As the national founding sponsor of Go Red For Women, I’m
incredibly proud to say that through our efforts and the generous
support of our customers and associates — Macy’s has raised $60 million
for Go Red, and has been an important part of the work that is credited
with saving 293 women’s lives each day over that time. We are not only
raising awareness, but taking action, and Macy’s remains dedicated to
helping prevent cardiovascular disease by providing our customers easy
ways to get involved and give back to the cause.”

New this year, Macy’s is telling the stories of five associates affected
by heart disease. These brave women have shared their personal stories,
becoming the “heart” of Macy’s 2017 Go Red For Women campaign. The women
will be in featured in national marketing across the country and their
stories will be highlighted on

“The American Heart Association is deeply thankful for Macy’s
significant and steadfast commitment to raising awareness of heart
disease in women through the Go Red For Women movement, but there is
more work to do,” said Alvin Royse, J.D., CPA, American Heart
Association chairman of the national board of directors. “Cardiovascular
diseases kill about one woman every 80 seconds, but there is some good
news: about 80 percent of cardiovascular diseases may be preventable.

lifesaving education and research that will impact women’s lives, and
heart health, for the better.”
