As Filipinos navigate through the extended impact of the pandemic, the need for care is at an all-time high. Whether it’s self-care at an individual level or the rise of community pantries inspiring the nation to show care at a collective level, there’s no denying that every act of care goes a long way in helping Filipinos power through the toughest of times.
With this in mind, Unilever joins forces with Lazada yet again to unite Filipinos together for the fourth consecutive year of their Shop2Give Super Brand Day Sale happening this July 2. Entitled “Shop2Give Care”, this year’s installment aims to further ignite the spirit of caring by bringing forward the season of giving, with the earliest celebration of Christmas to date.
On July 2, Unilever and Lazada give online shoppers an early Christmas treat through exclusive discounts and offers on your favorite Unilever brands Surf, Dove, TRESemmé, Cream Silk, Pond’s, Breeze, Knorr, and many more. Families in need will also be given the gift of an early Christmas as a portion of the proceeds will go towards support for the education programs of UNICEF Philippines and provision of household essentials in line with Gawad Kalinga’s Barangay Walang Iwanan Community Initiative.
UNICEF has been a long-standing partner of both Lazada and Unilever. “We at UNICEF are grateful to Unilever and Lazada for their continuous support by giving more Filipino children the opportunity to have brighter futures,” Isy Faingold, Chief of Education of UNICEF Philippines, remarked. “COVID-19 has created a major disruption in the education system in the Philippines, most especially in early childhood education. The funds raised from this campaign will provide educational supplies for the youngest children and will support their parents and caregivers to conduct home-based development and learning activities with a focus in the most disadvantaged areas”.
A new addition to the Shop2Give campaign is its commitment to extend care for communities in partnership with Gawad Kalinga. In line with their thrust to help alleviate poverty in the Philippines, Gawad Kalinga established the Barangay Walang Iwanan initiative, a platform to help the less fortunate through employment, donations, volunteerism, or even integration into business value-chains.
“We are thrilled to be part of the Shop2Give campaign and are excited to witness the Filipino spirit of Bayanihan come to life in this early season of giving. With the help of Unilever Philippines, Lazada, and of course, the rest of the community, we will be able to help improve the quality of life of 30 communities by providing them with much needed essential food, personal care, and home care items,” shares Daniel R. Bercasio, Executive Director of Gawad Kalinga.
An Early Christmas Party
In celebration of the earliest Christmas, Unilever goes live on Lazada for a two-hour live stream party on July 2. Hosted by Macoy Averilla and Bea Arboleda and a special performance from Ian Pangilinan, the live stream is sure to excite online shoppers as they add to cart and check out on the official sale day. Surprise vouchers will also be revealed at different times during the live stream.
“Lazada is thrilled to join forces once again with Unilever this year in support of UNICEF Philippines and Gawad Kalinga. As a leading e-commerce platform in the country, we are committed to providing Filipinos access to essential items and also extending care to those in need,” says Ray Alimurung, Lazada Philippines’ CEO.
