Lipa City – Give the children of Marawi the gift of reading this year with The SM Store’s Donate-a-Book campaign. It can be remembered that the five-month-long siege in Marawi affected thousands of children’s lives. Some schools were destroyed while children have no longer access to education and can’t afford basic learning materials like books and school supplies.

Reading is known as a powerful tool for healing – as it helps the mind to find its peaceful place.  This is because books are motivating, inspirational and give a vision of human strength. Help the children of Marawi overcome difficulties and dream again with the Gift of Reading.

In this joint project of The SM Store and SM Stationery, booths have been set up in all The SM Store branches nationwide. Shoppers can now have the chance to donate new books, pre-loved books and brand new school supplies set from May 1, 2018 to June 30, 2018.

Each donation entitles a customer with a Php 50 discount coupon which can be redeemed for every minimum Php 500 single-receipt purchase on regular-priced items from the SM Stationery at The SM Store. Coupons are valid until May 1, 2019.

Donate-A-Book is one of the ways The SM Store and its customers work together to do their share for the less fortunate. The joy it brings the recipients is priceless as it can in the Alabang Elementary School and the Tanza Elementary School. And your donation will certainly bring smiles to the children of Marawi.

Other projects are Share Your Extras, Gamot Para Sa Kapwa and the upcoming Share-A-Toy campaign.
