NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–This October, Macy’s will put the power of pink to work through an
inspirational and fashionable campaign that draws attention, heightens
awareness and raises funds in the fight against breast cancer. With
in-store and online destinations, Macy’s elevates the fundraising focus
on a disease that affects not only women, but the family and friends
that surround them. Pink prevails in-store with commemorative and
exclusive product from fashion and cosmetics to home merchandise, and
Pink Pony apparel and accessories, as well as a limited-edition Pink
Pony Pin. With a plentitude of pink, Macy’s celebrates Breast Cancer
Awareness Month with style, strength and steadfast support.

like breast cancer that has affected so many within our communities, is
incredibly inspiring and strong,” said Martine Reardon, chief marketing
officer for Macy’s. “Our passion for charitable initiatives is even more
impactful with the support of our customers, employees and partners,
such as Ralph Lauren, who come together to make a difference. By
creating dedicated touch points within our stores and on with
our Pink Shop, customers who are just as committed to the cause as we
are have a place to shop and do good fashionably.”
