Christmas is the time of the year when everyone gets busy trying to manage all the excitement of shopping for gifts and going to parties.
True to most people’s experience, it is delightful to receive presents from loved ones. Amidst all the frenzy, there will be many who will seek to share their blessings to other people.
Above is a photo of our family’s SM Bear of Joy.
On its fourth consecutive year, SM Supermalls offers an opportunity for shoppers to give back and make another child happy, through the SM Bears of Joy charity program.
Millions of Filipino customers will once again be given a chance to buy 2 bears for the amount of P200.00, keeping one and donating the other to a less fortunate child. Each SM Supermall has partnered with an orphanage or charity institution, and all the collected bears for donation will be shared at the end of the program.
Even with endless parties and grand celebrations, there is always an opportunity to make a child happy. Every time you buy an SM Bear of Joy, you touch someone’s heart with your act of generosity and kindness.
Giving is indeed the true spirit of Christmas.
The Christmas Bears of Joy is a project of SM Cares, a division of SM Foundation, and the CSR arm of SM Prime Holdings, Inc. Visit Bears of Joy booths in participating SM Supermalls for a chance to get your own SM Cares Bears. The booths will run until January 11, 2005.
