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?
Until July 31, 2022 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 the company will use the card points for a donation drive.
“Our goal is to gather three million points to buy 10,000 pairs of shoes for World Vision and SM Foundation kids,” she says. “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.”
According to World Vision, this program will benefit underprivileged children from different parts of the country including to the provinces of Cebu and Cotabato.
To donate your points, simply log in to www.smac.ph then select “transfer points.” Then enter [email protected] and encode the number of points you wish to donate. Validate your donation by entering a one-time pine, then complete your transaction. Participating cards include SMAC, SMAC Prestige, and BDO SMAC.
