SM Cares honor of frontliners with special bears
THE SM Bears of Joy project returns this holiday season to bring color back into Christmas and remind shoppers that a little generosity can go a long way. The SM Bears of Joy is an annual project of SM Cares, SM Supermalls, and Toy Kingdom to encourage shoppers to share the holiday season’s joy with children in need. However, this year will be a little different as SM Cares is also honoring COVID-19 frontliners with the launch of four specially designed plushies. The special Bears of Joy are Kit the Doctor, Ace the Soldier, and Max the Police. Shoppers can purchase the bears at P200 per pair. The shopper gets to keep one of the bears, while the other will be given for donation to a charity of the mall’s choosing. The special plushies are available in select SM Malls nationwide and through the online stores of Toy Kingdom and The SM Store, until Dec. 25. SM Cares is the corporate social responsibility arm of SM Supermalls.
