Macy's To Donate Thanksgiving Day Parade Tickets To Hurricane Sandy Victims

Filed under: Fashion SmashionMacy's

Amazing!

Macy's and NYC Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg are teaming up to provide a very special Thanksgiving Day treat to those affected by Hurricane Sandy.

The two have set aside 5,000 tickets for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and will be distributed by local elected officials in the hardest hit areas. Macy's will also provide transportation to and from the Turkey Day festivities.

Bloomberg hopes the distribution of tickets will make Thanksgiving feel a little more joyous for families, saying:

"Thanksgiving is a time to enjoy friends and family and reflect on life’s blessings, but this will be a particularly difficult holiday for many New Yorkers who suffered terrible losses as a result of Hurricane Sandy. So many people have been donating their time, energy, and resources to helping families hit hard by the storm recover, and we hope that taking part in a tradition like the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will make their holiday just a little brighter."

The parade’s executive producer, Ann Kule added she too hopes the tickets will "provide some comfort" and that they "leave the parade knowing that our 8,000 marchers, the city and the nation are behind them as they recover from this devastating storm."

Bravo, Macy's and Mayor Bloomberg! Bravo!

Anyway, we don't know if it's the spirit of thankfulness or the desire to give back to hurricane-devastated New York City, but the singer isn't the only awesome guest this year!

The parade also boasts float passengers like
