SM City Iloilo celebrates Philippine Independence Day 2017 with #TheSlippersProject

This year as we celebrate Independence Day, we do not merely look at the past, but we look towards the future. In Iloilo, thousands of children have to walk to school. A lot of these children brave the elements by crossing rivers, unpaved roads and sometimes trudging on mud when the rains come.
Still, a lot of these children are determined to face these challenges and walk to school. Sometimes, too, they suffer wounds on their feet just to get an education.
As we celebrate this year’s Independence Day, #TheSlippersProject is for these children. Through this, too, we remember our young National Hero and his story about his slippers. This story is our inspiration.

Visit our Independence Day Centerpiece at the SM City Iloilo Northpoint Event Center, show your #PinoyPrideAtSM and look for our donation box. Your PHP35 will go a long way for the children of public elementary schools in Iloilo and Bacolod. / press release
