I was contacted and asked to blog about the Macy’s Come Together Campaign in an effort to spread the word. COME TOGETHER is an innovative awareness and fundraising campaign that aims to feed 10 million people suffering from hunger. COME TOGETHER invites the public to rally around the cause by hosting special dinners in their homes and asking their guests to pledge a donation to Feeding America. In return, Macy’s will match these donations dollar-for-dollar until the total goal of 10 million meals is reached.

Get Involved!
To get involved the public may participate in three ways Host, Give and Shop. My donation has already been made…I hope you do the same, every $1 helps!

HOST– Friends and families across the country can host dinner parties from casual to formal, send invitations and manage party details including themes and recipes on In lieu of bringing traditional host gifts, guests are suggested to make a donation to Feeding America.
GIVE – Donate $1 directly at any Macy’s register, one dollar provides dinner for seven.
SHOP – Macy’s customers can shop for the cause and get special savings in-store on October 17, when Macy’s hosts a national Shop For A Cause day. A portion of the $5 in-store ticket sales will benefit Feeding America.

    I'm gonna go a little nutzo here…I'd invite Jane Eyre, Emily Martin from the Black Apple, Parker Posie, and my grandma. I don't know why…just seems like it would make for an intersting dinner (especially since one is a book character!).

  2. Asha @ FSK says:

    ok sorry I did not read the comment rules properly. OK! The 4 people I would invite would be

    1. Rohinton Mistry – He is a fantastic author and I love the way he writes

    2. P.G Wodehouse – everybody needs some humor in life and I can't think of any other person with a better sense of humor! :)

    3. Joel Robuchon – I love French food and share a table with one of the masters of the cuisine would be beyond my dreams.

    4. My husband – I would not dream of having my perfect dinner guests without sharing the occasion with him! :)

    well.. I do hope I get picked! there are so many little kitchen things I have had my eye on for months now…fingers crossed!! :))

  3. Stephanie says:

    I would definitely invite my husband because he is just so fun and I wouldn't want to miss sharing any experience with him. Then I would invite our favorite chefs Bobby Flay and Duff Goldman. Hopefully they would be cooking & baking!:) They both cook/bake amazing food and seem like so much fun, so I know we'd have a great time!

  4. Eva says:

    I would invite my parents and my two siblings for a hot pot dinner during winter. I love my family and we are all over the country. Rare family time together is greatly treasured.

    I also tweeted about it, hopefully people will come visit!

    My four people would be:

    1. Werner Herzog – Simply put, I would love to just hold a conversation with him.

    2. Michelle Obama – She's lovely, smart, and full of charm.

    3. My Grandfather – He was the KING of some fried fish and chips. Plus I miss him.

    4. My Hubby – Cause I love him.

  7. Emily says:

    First I'll answer the WHY: Because I'd ask each of them to bring a course and it would be a FABULOUS dinner!
    1. Bobby Flay
    2. Mario Batali
    3. Ina Garten
    4. Giada

  8. d8t8k says:

    I would invite my brother and sister-in-law (because I only see them once a year, maybe)and President Obama (to get some insight on what's really happening in D.C.) and my husband (because he would like to join the party).

  9. Debbie says:

    I would invite my four grandparents to dinner so I would have a chance to see them all again and ask all the questions about our family's history that I was too young to realize to ask years ago!!!
