If you’re like me you do not need an excuse to go shopping.  So why not enjoy one of your favorite pastimes in support of a wonderful cause?  Starting tomorrow through Thursday, Bloomingdale’s is having a Fashionable Fundraiser in support of amfAR.  amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, is an inter nation nonprofit organization dedicated to the support of AIDS research, HIV prevention, treatment education and the advocacy of AIDS-related public policy.

You can shop and even get a discount! Now is a great time to grab the latest selections for fall. With the seasons about to change it’s time to update your fall/winter closet picking up those must-haves ahead of the crowds.

Stop in and cycle for a cure at your nearest Bloomingdales on Wednesday, August 20 and pedal for 1-3 minutes to help your store with their nationwide virtual race and support the fight against AIDS. Share photos and show your support using #bloomiescares.  You’ll receive a $10 bMoney card just for participating and enter to win a $1,000 Bloomingdale’s gift card and two tickets to the amfAR Inspiration Gala in New York City or a Schwinn stationary spinning bike.

There are two Bloomingdales in the Washington metropolitan area: Wisconsin Place in Chevy Chase, Maryland and Tysons Corner Center in Tysons Corner, Virginia. The sale is also available online at bloomingdales.com.  Happy Shopping!  I’ll see you there!
