From its wide selection of cozy cover-ups and everyday wear perfect for the holidays, Japanese brand Uniqlo has been a go-to store for style fixes during the Yuletide season. This time, the brand gives back to the community with its “Give the Gift of LifeWear” event for the children of Bantay Bata and SOS Children’s Villages Philippines held at Uniqlo SM Megamall.
With the mission of “Unlocking the Power of Clothing,” over 100 kids from the two foundations were treated with early Christmas presents with the brand’s wide array of LifeWear essentials.
Adding to Christmas feels, the children were serenaded by two gems of the Philippine music industry—Lea Salonga and Jose Mari Chan.
“Filipinos have always welcomed us from the time we introduced Uniqlo here in 2012, so we want to reciprocate that by giving back to those in need,” shared Geraldine Sia, Uniqlo Philippines’ Co-COO. “More than just bringing good clothing to our customers through our apparel, it is also our mission to share our LifeWear to members of our community who don’t have access to our clothing and to our stores.”
