Part of #SparklingSMallidays campaign is the launch of the Bears of Joy, the annual charity project of SM Cares, SM Supermalls, and Toy Kingdom where for only P200.00, one can buy a pair of toy bears: one goes to the buyer, and the other is donated to a charity.

“The project started in 2011 and since then SM and its customers have given out more than 170,000 bears to underprivileged children nationwide. We invite all of you to spread the joy, buy a bear, and make a child happy this Christmas,” said Carlos Bauzon, SM’s assistant vice president for CSR marketing.

Meanwhile, Grace Magno, SM vice president for corporate marketing, also announced the launch of SM Supermalls Christmas playlist on Spotify and #DearSMSanta campaign.

Mr. Christmas Jose Mari Chan serenades audience with his iconic song “Christmas in our Hearts.”

In partnership with Spotify, SM curated a playlist to set the holiday mood with their Christmas jingle, ‘SM Mallidays’, and other best-loved Christmas tunes. “We will continue to create playlists throughout the year to celebrate other Filipino occasions such as Valentine’s and Easter,” Magno added.
