Christmas may be different from years past, but the meaning behind the season remains. Although the health crisis has forced Filipinos to downsize what was traditionally large Noche Buena gatherings, there is hope in better days ahead that will allow families to have a merrier celebration – the blessing of once again being able to gather with fully-vaccinated loved ones around the same Christmas tree. 

SM Supermalls brings the festivities to its shoppers with a series of memorable Christmas celebrations, all while implementing strict #SafeMalling protocols.

Share smiles with SM Bears of Joy

This whole situation has taught plenty of people to share whatever they can with those who have less. Every year, SM Supermalls and Toy Kingdom come together to give shoppers a chance to share the holiday cheer with children in need. Starting November 12, shoppers can purchase the bears at P250 per pair – one to keep, and one to be donated to charity. 

This simple act of kindness can go a long way, especially during a time when empathy is needed most.
