Shopping...For A Good Cause

When I trained for the Chicago Marathon I did it through Team In Training, an organization that benefits the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I was a charity runner, and all of the money I raised went to the society. Now there is another opportunity to help through the Gap Inc.'s Give & Get promotion. You get 30% off Gap Inc Stores and on top of that 5% of the amount you spend goes to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society! What's better than saving money and at the same time helping a charity???

What To Do

1) Visit the link to print out a coupon
2) Shop at Gap, Banana Republic or Old Navy between 3/12 and 3/15
3) Save 30% while also donating 5% to LLS

Easy, right? Now book some time in your calendar to do some shopping :)

Training Log
Time:31:08   Distance:2.93 mi   Pace:10:38
Today I did a double-doozie ... ab class and a 3 mile run. I had no choice if I wanted to get all my runs in this week, but its really hard to do both in one day! My ab class does do some leg stuff (lifts, planks, etc) and also just the 50 minutes of continual work can really wear me out. So I started out my run feeling pretty tired, was tired during the run, and am really tired now :) It feels good to get it in, and I had a Coke to celebrate. Yay!

Thanks for posting that! I am actually planning a trip to the Gap outlet this weekend and am printing out the coupon right now. Thanks!

Do you think that now that Athleta is part of the Gap "family of brands" this will work there too?

Glad people can use the coupon! Megan - Thats a good question ... I'd try calling Athleta to ask :)

Im already trying to surf online to see what I "need" from Banana Republic!
