YOUR SM Advantage Card (SMAC) can do more than earn points for shopping, discounts and freebies. If you haven’t decided yet to use your SMAC points, especially those that are about to expire, why not donate them to a special cause or charity?

From May 15 through July 31, SMAC members can help make a difference by donating their points to The SM Store’s Share Shoes program.

“This is the first time we will be using SMAC points for a donation campaign. Our goal is to collect 3 million points to purchase 10,000 pairs of shoes for children from World Vision and the SM Foundation. The shoes are essential – they help protect our feet from disease and yet, due to poverty, many Filipinos, especially children, do not have access to decent, well-fitting shoes,” said Chelo Monasterio, President of The SM Store.

Giving SMAC points is easy. Just log on to www. smac.ph, then select Transfer Points, enter [email protected], and enter the number of points you want to give. Validate your donation by entering a unique PIN, then complete the transaction. Participating cards include SM Advantage Card, SMAC Prestige and BDO SMAC.

Earlier this year, The SM Store donated 500,000 pairs of shoes to beneficiaries of the Department of Social Welfare and Development and Caritas Philippines nationwide, including last-mile communities.
