In response to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, Casual Market Chicago and the Merchandise Mart announced today a donation-matching program benefitting the American Red Cross. The digital fundraising campaign will run from Sept. 12-15, the duration of the annual trade show.
Those who would like to help can text REDCROSS to 90999, and $10 will be added to their wireless bill and the funds will be sent to the Red Cross. Those who donate can post their contribution to Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #CasualCares, and theMART will match donations up to $5,000.
“Witnessing the destruction of homes and businesses in our country has been truly heart-breaking,” said Beth Hicks, Managing Director of Marketing for the Design Center at theMART and Casual Market Chicago. “The casual furnishings industry is deeply rooted in the Southeastern and Southwestern states that have been affected, and we feel it is important for us to come together to support victims of the disaster.”
