It’s 100 Days ‘til Christmas and it’s all about caring and giving at SM Supermalls

Friday, September 17, 2021


The past years have always had us counting down to the most wonderful time of the year when the ‘ber’ months roll in; Christmas carols fill the air, dazzling tree lights dot the streets, shopping for gifts becomes a sport, and everyone else goes on a diet to make way for Christmas feasts.

This year may not be as festive as previous years, but it will most certainly be more meaningful. SM showed us the most uplifting way to best celebrate the season with “100 Days of Caring”;  featuring 100 days of spreading love, thoughtfulness, and care for one another and for the communities surrounding our favorite SM malls. The virtual event showcasing the pledges happened Thursday, Sept 16, 2021 over FB Live and WatchSM on YouTube.

“100 days of Caring”.
 To kickstart the Christmas countdown, SM pledged to donate to over 10,000 beneficiaries, namely communities in need, hardworking SM employees, medical frontliners and dedicated delivery partners, among others. Some of the beneficiaries and their partner malls are as follows: 

‘Gift’ for your mental health. Aside from our physical health being at risk during a pandemic, our mental health is also affected due to the stress and anxiety these times bring. And since SM believes in the value of taking care of our mental health, Dr Gia Sison, MD DPCOM gave a  ‘Call to Share’ talk during the virtual launch. Dr Gia Sison is a mental health advocate and co-founder of PH Leader Livestrong Foundation. Her talk centered on how to cope during this stressful time and still find hope in a better tomorrow.

100 voices that care. If there’s one thing that binds us all Filipinos together, it’s our passion and love for music. While we may not be allowed to have big gatherings this year, SM entertained the audience with the performance of the 3 Divas – Rahda, Frenchie and Bituin Escalante; later on joined by 100 artists, singers, and SM employees and stakeholders who came together to sing during the virtual launch on Sept 16.

We may be in the middle of a pandemic, times may be tough, and many of us may be physically apart, but let’s not forget what this season truly means. To view the event, go to WatchSM on YouTube.

While staying home during the past year, many have embraced the sporting life to keep healthy, happy and fit. They’ve turned to home gyms or online fitness classes instead of heading to the gym center; converted a part of their home into a yoga studio; biked their way to well-being through stationery bikes or cycled their way to the office; and have turned to their backyards to keep active and busy.

More than that, wellness has evolved from a lifestyle choice to a new status symbol, with an increasing number of fitness buffs showcasing their healthy lifestyles in social media, posting photos of them wearing athleisure apparel for all kinds of activities.

The good news is that Surplus has a new active wear collection designed for your comfort, performance, and style, perfect for both fitness and fashion.

Start your day balancing body, mind, and spirit with some yoga and meditation wearing a snug fit sports bra paired with lightweight and breathable leggings for a good range of motion. Do some cardio or strength training to boost your mood with sweat-wicking tees, gym shorts, or sweatpants.

If you’re going for a quick outdoor run or bike, wear athletic jackets or hoodies to protect your skin under the sun. Make sure also to keep your belongings safe with Surplus messenger bags, gym bags, and waist packs. Staying hydrated is also a must with tumblers and water bottles available in different designs and colors.

The Surplus active collection is available at Surplus stores located in most SM Supermalls nationwide.

Contact your nearest Surplus branch at bit.ly/OTDcontacts or visit SM City San Jose del Monte, SM City Baliwag and SM Center Pulilan.

SM Mall in San Jose del Monte City in partnership with the Local Government Unit (LGU) has successfully achieved the 100% vaccination status across employees, agency staff, and tenant partners.

For the safety of its frontline workers and customers, and to stay true to its commitment to provide safe malling experience, SM City San Jose del Monte encouraged all its employees to get vaccinated against Covid19 and rewardingly became the second mall to hit the 100% vaccination status next to SM Center Tuguegarao Downtown.

“We are truly grateful for the strong commitment of LGU and the mall team, SM City San Jose del Monte is now 100% vaccinated. It is true that we can really be stronger and can achieve significant milestones if we will all work hard.” said Regional Operations Manager Lea D. Sta Ana. “We will remain committed in giving the community the safest shopping experience.” she added.

Last May 14, the mall became one of the LGU’s partner in inoculating those in the priority list. Then, the City Health Office started with just 400 vaccines per day. And now that there are more available vaccines, they were able to inoculate 2,000 at the most.

And since vaccines became available to category A4 or the frontline personnel in essential sectors, the mall management became the bridge to the city health and to its frontline employees who weren’t yet vaccinated to get their jab done, which includes the guards, janitorial services, sales clerk, affiliates and tenant’s staff.

Regardless of this achievement, SM City San Jose del Monte will continuously and strictly implement the minimum health protocols such as wearing of face mask, face shields, social distancing, washing of hands, and bringing their own handy alcohol or sanitizers.
