As founding national sponsor of the American Heart Association’s Go
Red For Women® movement, Macy’s has raised more than $55 million to
support the fight against heart disease in women, resulting in 285 lives
saved each day from the movement

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Macy’s will inspire women and ignite action once again this February as
the national founding sponsor of the American Heart Association’s Go Red
For Women®. In honor of American Heart Month, Macy’s will
offer limited-edition merchandise, promotions and in-store events to
benefit Go Red For Women throughout February. Together with its
associates and customers, Macy’s has helped to raise more than $55
million to support Go Red For Women since 2004. This contribution has
funded vital research and education efforts credited with saving 285
lives every day.

Heart disease is not just a man’s disease; in fact, 90 percent of women
have at least one risk factor for cardiovascular diseases which cause
one in three deaths among women each year. Macy’s encourages customers
to support this fight against heart disease and stroke by participating
in the Go Red with Macy’s event from Wednesday, Feb. 3 to Monday, Feb.
8. Customers who wear red or purchase the official Red Dress pin for $3
will receive an extra 25 percent on most purchases storewide, or 15
percent off fine and fashion jewelry, sale and clearance watches, and
select home items. Exclusions and restrictions apply. One hundred
percent of the Red Dress pin sales benefit Go Red For Women.

In celebration of National Wear Red Day on Feb. 5, Macy’s is offering
customers three limited-edition red dresses throughout February by
Kensie ($99.00), Thalia ($89.50) and Calvin Klein ($134.00) with 10
percent of the purchase price benefiting Go Red For Women. The dresses
will be available in store and on To stay heart-healthy
in style this February, Macy’s is also offering exclusive Ideology
active wear in support of Go Red For Women. The collection includes
select sports bras, socks, tank tops, graphic t-shirts and crop pants
with 10 percent of the purchase price benefiting Go Red For Women.

“As the founding national partner, Macy’s has been a proud supporter of
Go Red For Women for more than a decade,” said Martine Reardon, Macy’s
chief marketing officer. “Through the movement, the color ‘red’ and ‘the
red dress’ have become linked with the ability all women have to improve
their heart health and live stronger, longer lives. We thank our
associates and customers who take such an active role in our efforts to
help the millions of women in the United States affected by
cardiovascular diseases, and look forward to their support again this
year as we offer many ways to give back to the cause through our
promotions, events and merchandise.”

“The American Heart Association is thankful for Macy’s continued support
of Go Red For Women and the great work they have done to raise awareness
of heart disease in women,” said Al Royse, American Heart Association
chairman of the national board of directors. “An estimated 44 million
women in the U.S. are affected by cardiovascular diseases, and a
surprising 80 percent of cardiac and stroke events may be prevented by
taking the right steps, like scheduling a Well-Woman Visit to fully
understand the risks for heart disease. Macy’s helps fund life-saving
research and education that no doubt impacts many lives.”

In addition to the Go Red with Macy’s event and merchandise benefiting
the cause, Macy’s will host additional events offering even more chances
to support Go Red For Women:
