This Week’s Macy’s Christmas Miracle

‘Believe’ is the theme of the annual Macy’s Christmas fundraising campaign for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and that word should have extra meaning for us this week after the revelations that Macy’s no longer contributes to Planned Parenthood.

At 2ndVote, we’ve always believed that the research and resources we develop can create informed shoppers who will engage companies for taking positions that don’t line up with our values. That’s why we want to thank you for believing in what we do and reaching out to Macy’s to influence their decision.

This week’s news should make us all believe that companies will come back to neutral when we let them know why we don’t want our dollars supporting liberal organizations like Planned Parenthood. Your support and efforts have paid off this week and we believe other companies are paying attention.

See below what other’s have been saying about this week’s ‘Miracle on 34th Street’ that came just in time for Christmas. Then make sure to use our Christmas Shopping Guide as you make your shopping decisions for the rest of the season. (Wouldn’t Macy’s make a great #AnywhereButTARGET alternative choice this year?)

    I have had no problem finding neutral places to shop since I cut up my Macy’s card and mailed it back to them after they cancelled Trump’s line of clothing based on political motivation. I prefer to shop elsewhere, although discontinuing their PP money is a start, but not enough to get my business.

    • Ron Bass

      Curious. What would it take to get your business back? I too stopped shopping at Macy’s when they got rid of the Trump line.

      • Right wing

        Once a company alienates a large part of it’s clientele by taking a public political stance, (especially when I saw Trump as the change we so desperately needed), any attempt to generate goodwill by a change in that policy appears to me to be pandering for money, while deep seated values held by that company remain, in my mind, most likely unchanged. Therefore, it is difficult for me to change my stance, especially when there are easy alternatives to choose. In the case of Macy’s, I simply walk down the mall to Dillards and find everything I need there. I doubt if Kellogg’s will ever see another dollar of my money, and Target is pretty much off my radar. I do, infrequently, stop at Starbucks, I am sorry to say.

        • Ron Bass

          I know the kind of people who banned the Trump line of clothes, knee jerk lefties, but I would return to shopping at Macy’s if they brought the Trump line back. The deep seated values held by the people that run the company will not change, but by bringing the Trump line back then Macy’s, the company would be doing the right thing and the boycott would be considered a success.

          • Right wing

            You make a good point.
