Washington, D.C. (April 30, 2013) - The National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks, and Macy’s are giving people the opportunity to thank moms everywhere – including Mother Earth!
Through May 12, the public is invited to visit facebook.com/macys to thank mothers around the world with a free, personalized e-card in honor of Mother’s Day 2013. For every e-card that is sent with the National Park Foundation selected as the charity of choice, Macy’s will donate two dollars in the recipient’s honor to the National Park Foundation.
Macy’s will donate up to $400,000 total to selected non-profits. The National Park Foundation is one of five mom-approved charities that Macy’s will contribute to as part of the “Thank-a-Mom” movement.
