Know what would be great? If you could combine doing something for other people AND a little retail therapy. If you’re down for exactly that kind of self-care, along with spreading some kindness, head to Westfield Garden State Plaza for their Shop Your Heart Out extravaganza.
Just in time for pre-holiday shopping, Westfield Garden State Plaza is offering you 10 days of in-store VIP deals at over 100 retailers. But at the same time, you’ll be doing your part to help make someone else’s life a little easier or better. All it takes from you is a minimum $10 donation, though donations of all sizes are appreciated.
Westfield Garden State Plaza has teamed up with local charitable organizations including the Center for Food Action, Community Food Bank, Eva’s Village, LEEP, NPower, Project Destined, Spring Lake Toys Foundation, #theJLBC, Tuesday’s Children, and the Valley Hospital Auxiliary for this event. You get to decide whether you’d like your donation to help feed our community, care for those dealing with trauma, illness or mental health issues, ensure college access for low income and first generation students, train veterans and young adults, or support a community hospital, among others.
Once you’ve picked your charity and made your donation, you’ll unlock your Shop Your Heart Out savings pass, good for in-store discounts between October 23rd and October 31st at 100+ retailers and restaurants within Garden State Plaza. The list of participating locations includes Abercrombie & Fitch, Louis Vuitton, Fabletics, H&M, Hollister, and Athleta. This list is growing daily. Because who wouldn’t want to join in to help out their neighbors?
Oh, and just in case the $10 for hundreds of deals thing wasn’t enough for you, Westfield Rewards members will receive double points for all their purchases during the Shop Your Heart Out time period. Want in on that? Join the Westfield Rewards Program here.
To get started, visit the website, pick your charity, make your donation and then, (this is the fun part) make your shopping list. Go ahead and put a little something (or a few little somethings, no judgement) on that list for yourself. Because as you’ve always heard, it pays to be kind.
The Shop Your Heart Out Event will run from Friday, October 23rd through Saturday, October 31st. Some restrictions apply.
