If you could round up a purchase to support Bunker Labs’ programming, would you? We hope your answer is yes, because Macy’s is making it possible July 1st through July 18th.
For the second year in a row, Bunker Labs and Macy’s are teaming up for the Macy’s Salutes Those Who Serve campaign. The campaign asks shoppers to round up their in-store purchase amount to donate up to $0.99 to benefit two veteran service organizations, Blue Star Families and Bunker Labs.
While the donation is small for individual shoppers, the impact is big for Bunker Labs. Last year, the campaign raised just over $2 million for three organizations, of which $679,607 went to Bunker Labs. Needless to say, that funding goes a long way in helping us host local networking events for veteran entrepreneurs, provide entrepreneurial education and resources, and launch new chapters to serve more veterans nationwide.
The video above highlights three Bunker Labs program participants:
- LeAnn Darland, U.S. Navy veteran and co-founder of Talea Beer in New York City
- Joseph Zoleta, U.S. Marine Corp veteran and founder of Black 6 Coffee Trading Co in New York City
- Al Mazzone, U.S. Army veteran and chairman of Horn & Hardart Coffee in Philadelphia and New York City
Style Makeovers for Six Veterans and Military Spouses—Plus Macy’s Gift Cards
In addition to the in-store donation campaign, Macy’s will host in-store events in select cities, and Atlanta. At each event, two local veterans or military spouses will get a free style makeover through the Macy’s MyStylist program. For many entrepreneurs, especially entrepreneurs who have spent years of their life dressed in military uniforms, receiving expert help in putting together outfits that highlight their personal brand can go a long way.
In addition to watching the big makeover reveals, each event attendee will receive a Macy’s gift card while supplies last! Stay tuned for more details regarding locations and times.
Stay Tuned for a Special Episode of the Breakdown
Bunker Labs will also host a special edition of The Breakdown during the campaign in which we’ll highlight Macy’s, the round up campaign, and a discussion on how companies, large and small, can make philanthropy a part of their company’s mission. The Breakdown is streamed live on our Facebook page so be sure to follow us on Facebook to watch the episode.
