For the fifth year in a row, Got Your 6 is honored to partner with Macy’s. This year, Got Your 6 and Macy’s will team up to reinforce “The Power Of Potential” to ensure veterans skills are utilized here at home.

Join us in celebrating July 4th and five years of giving back to America’s veterans!

On Wednesday, June 28 to Tuesday, July 4, give $3 and get 25% off storewide or 15% off the home store, fine and fashion jewelry, sale and clearance watches.

You can shop in store or online! 100% of your $3 will benefit Got Your 6 and our nonprofit partners. Since 2013, Macy’s customers and associates have helped raise more than $8.3 million for Got Your 6 in support of veterans and military families across the country. Visit Macy’s to learn more.

Thanks to Macy’s support, Got Your 6 and our partners are being provided the resources to fulfill our mission of empowering veterans and delivering real change in small towns and big cities across America.

For example, through our nonprofit partner Hiring our Heroes, the funding we’ve generated over the past five years has helped secure 585,000 commitments to hire veterans and military spouses. These commitments not only translate into increased job opportunities, they empower veterans to showcase their leadership and problem-solving skills within communities all across the country.

Similarly, the donations we’ve received from our Macy’s partnership has supported the work of The 6th Branch, allowing it to expand into neighboring communities in East Baltimore and grow its mission.

The funding has also supported the work of Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) to help 1,400 children – and an equal number of mentors – through programs that focus on grief and healing.

In 2016, for the fourth year in a row, Got Your 6 was excited to participate in Macy’s American Icons campaign. Last year, Macy’s celebrated the beats we all love with music, festivities, and fashion. And together, as always, we celebrated the people, places, and things that make America great—all in effort to empower our country’s military veterans and families.

The campaign kicked off with Got Your 6 Weekend May 13-15. Got Your 6 and our partners visited Macy’s stores across the nation to share stories of service and to shift the conversation about veterans.

In order to empower veterans with Got Your 6 and Macy’s, shoppers were able to visit any Macy’s store or Macys.com and give $3 to get 25 percent off their purchase.  Learn more at Macys.com/gotyour6.

In addition, on Thursday, June 2, Macy’s presented Macy’s Summer Vibes — an online music festival!  For every view from June 2-19, Macy’s donated $1, up to $100K, to Got Your 6.

See you at Macy’s and online! And get ready to check out our 2017 Macy’s partnership.

 

I Am a Veteran

#IAm just like you

Got Your 6 and Macy’s teamed up for a special edition of the #IAm campaign! The campaign highlights veterans’ multi-dimensional attributes, challenging stereotypes and misconceptions in order to normalize perceptions of those who have served in the military.  As the cultural narrative changes, Got Your 6 engages veterans and civilians together to foster understanding, and empower veterans to lead in their communities. Click on the photographs below to meet Macy’s employees who have served in the military.
