The SM Store introduces a new way to donate with SM Advantage Card
June 03, 2022

From May 15 to July 31, SMAC cardholders can donate their SMAC points to Share Shoes. The program aims to raise as many points as possible to buy 10,000 pairs of shoes for World Vision and SM Foundation kids

 

Your SM Advantage Card (SMAC) can do so much more than earn points for shopping and get discounts and freebies. If you have not decided yet on using your SMAC points, especially points that are about to expire, why not donate them to a special cause or charity?

Starting May 15 to July 31, SMAC members can help make a difference by donating their points to the Share Shoes program of The SM Store. According to Chelo Monasterio, President of The SM Store, “this is the first time we will use SMAC points for a donation drive. Our goal is to gather 3 million points to buy 10,000 pairs of shoes for World Vision and SM Foundation kids. Shoes are essential—they help protect our feet from diseases and injuries. Still, because of poverty, many Filipinos, especially children, do not have access to decent and well-fitted shoes.”

During the program launch held May 18 at The SM Store Makati Prestige Lounge, Monasterio said Share Shoes is in line with SM Founder Henry Sy Sr.’s vision where Filipinos, especially children, have access to a decent pair of shoes. She also shared how SMAC cardholders can help make a difference by donating their SMAC points to Share Shoes.

For World Vision Philippines, Resource Development Director Jun Godornes explained how shoes from Share Shoes program will greatly boost the morale of World Vision kids as they start to attend face-to-face classes for the upcoming school year
