SM Cares leads kick-off of National Bike Weekend in Pasay City

Fun Bike Ride, Bike Safety Clinic, and livelihood program launch held to promote cycling.

A Bike Safety Clinic taught children how to bike responsibly in the city by wearing safety gear and observing road signs.

SM Cares together with the local government of Pasay City kicked off the National Bike Weekend and the Foundation Week of the City last November 26 at SM By the Bay in the Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City.
Hundreds of cyclists joined "Padyak Pasay: Moving Together Towards One Eco City," a fun bike ride around the Mall of Asia Complex as part of the festivities. The bike ride celebrated Pasay as an eco-city, as the local government endeavors to make environmental awareness a driving force to achieve greater growth and development for the city. Pasay City Mayor Hon. Emi Calixto-Rubiano opened the bike ride, together with City Councilors and representatives of SM Prime Holdings, Inc., SM Supermalls, the Department of Transportation (DOTr), the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and bike organizations such as BeeSeekleta For Every Juan.

428 cyclists across Pasay City residents and partner organizations joined the bike ride which started and ended at SM by the BAY.

“These celebrations are very important to us at SM Cares, because we believe that progress should be as sustainable as it is achievable. Proof of this is our advocacy to create a bicycle-friendly community for everyone, where we work with our local governments to make bike facilities more accessible—from bike lanes, to bike racks and bike repair stops in our various properties,” Queenie Dizon-Rodulfo, SAVP for Mall Based Business Units and Operations Services of SM Supermalls said.

A Bike Safety Clinic taught children how to bike responsibly in the city by wearing safety gear and observing road signs.

Meanwhile, SM Cares also held a Bike Safety Clinic especially designed for Kids. Thirty children from Pasay together with their parents were educated about the meaning of various road Signages, hand signals, and were also instructed on how to properly wear safety equipment. The children received their personal helmets, elbow and knee pads from SM Cares to encourage them to have a lifelong affinity for biking. This event was supported by DOTr, Decathlon Philippines, MX3, Beesekleta for Every Juan and Tropang Women Bikers.
“We have been advocating road safety for our cyclists by partnering with the Department of Transportation and bicycle organizations to provide safety manuals and training. From adult cyclists and delivery riders, we are teaching our children to become responsible cyclists, too” Dizon-Rodulfo said.

SM PadyaKabuhayan bicycle carts were granted to 4Ps beneficiaries, including technical business training and bike safety tips for vendors.

The event also saw the launch of SM PadyaKabuhayan, a program that promotes sustainable livelihood through sustainable mobility. The program provides a means of earning for families in need, many of them beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program or 4Ps. It also expands the benefits of bikes, from being more than an environmentally-friendly form of transportation to a sustainable source of income. Beneficiaries of the program received bicycle food carts, comprehensive training on handling a business and road safety tips for bicycle vendors. The program was undertaken in partnership with Pasay City’s Social Welfare Department, Kalye Negosyo, and DTI.
“SM Cares believes in working together with a multi-stakeholder approach for our programs. We have always been about supporting communities, and we believe that social inclusion is vital in creating lasting change. Through this, we hope to help achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals 'SDG 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities,' which underscores the importance of making cities and settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable.” ~Dizon-Rodulfo

National Bike Day, which is celebrated every fourth Sunday of November, is celebrated in line with Proclamation No. 1052–which was signed by former President Rodrigo Duterte in 2020–with the aim to promote the environmental benefits of using bicycles.
SM Cares is the Corporate Social Responsibility arm of SM Supermalls, with programs that support communities, promote social inclusion, and care for the environment. Aside from the creation of bike-friendly SM Malls, its advocacies include Programs for the Environment, Persons with Disabilities, Women & Breastfeeding Mothers, Children & Youth, and Senior Citizens.

UNIQLO Releases Four New Designs for PEACE FOR ALL Charity T-shirt Project

New collection from four popular collaborators available from December 16.

November 29, 2022, Manila, Philippines - Global apparel retailer UNIQLO today announces the global launch of four new designs for PEACE FOR ALL, the charity T-shirt project from UT (UNIQLO T-shirt). This latest collection features special graphics from collaborators with a close connection to UNIQLO such as Peanuts as well as a design with an original photo taken by the world-renowned film director Wim Wenders. 

As with earlier collections, UNIQLO parent company Fast Retailing will continue to donate 100% of profits from the sale of the T-shirts (equivalent to 20% of the selling price) to three international aid organizations - UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, Save the Children, and Plan International - who provide assistance to people impacted by poverty, discrimination, violence and conflict.

UNIQLO first introduced the PEACE FOR ALL project on June 17, 2022, with the concept that a T-shirt can help make the world a better place. As of September, a total of more than 484,000 T-shirts have been sold, raising more than US $1M (calculation period through August 31). 

So far, 20 collaborators who support the project’s aim of “praying sincerely for world peace and taking action” have volunteered their time and effort to create one-of-a-kind, original design T-shirts.
The five new UTs will be available for purchase from Friday, December 16th.

PEACE FOR ALL New Collection Collaborator Comments and Profiles

WIM WENDERS (Film Director)

I never saw more horizon in my life than on that day in the West-Australian desert. And at the very end of that road, I was sure, behind the horizon, we could only find a peaceful future.

Wim Wenders is one of the most acclaimed film directors of our time, who won the Palm D’Or for PARIS, TEXAS, and more than 20 awards worldwide for WINGS OF DESIRE. His documentaries have received three Oscar nominations, and he was lately honored with the Praemium Imperiale. His photographs have been exhibited in museums all over the world.


The late Keith Haring created this artwork as a sign of global peace. It was meant to signify people all over the world coming together to stand for peace on earth.

A key figure in New York’s East Village scene toward the end of the 1970s and 80s, the American artist Keith Haring’s artwork populated not only art galleries, but also the city’s subways, streets, and sidewalks. His work often combined an iconographic vocabulary, including hearts, flying saucers, winged figures, and a crawling “radiant baby,” with abstract marks and patterning.

PEANUTS (Comics)

The group of friends who inhabit the world of Peanuts display a wide range of personalities: bold, nervous, romantic, curious, thoughtful, and adventurous. What unites them is their friendships and sense of community. For decades, the characters have resonated with fans for displaying all the elements of humanity. This design captures both the love the characters have for one another and the love that Peanuts inspires around the world.

Charles M. Schulz, the creator of the comic strip Peanuts, drew 17,897 strips over the course of half a century from 1950 (the year of the comic’s initial syndication in seven US newspapers) to his death in 2000.

LISA LARSON (Ceramicist)

The picture speaks of unconditional friendship and trust. The vulnerable girl sits on the back of a wild beast. We have to trust in Peace and choose the path of Peace. The lion symbolizes strength, loyalty, and bravery. It takes bravery to turn against violence. To protect the young girl means protecting the future of the human race. Trust is not being afraid. Peace is strength.

Born in 1931 in Härlunda in the province of Småland in the south of Sweden. In 1954, she began working for Gustavsberg porcelain. Later, as the company’s star designer, she became a mainstay of the golden age of Swedish ceramics. In 1980, Larson left the company to work as a freelance designer. In 1992, she co-founded Keramikstudion Gustavsberg. Full of life, Lisa continues to make new designs for production, and unique (one-off) ceramic pieces.

UNIQLO believes that T-shirts have the power to express the ideas of the wearer, as well as elicit empathy and spread messages broadly. To help create a peaceful future, UNIQLO actively engages with individuals who support the PEACE FOR ALL project and dedicates space in its stores around the world to remind customers of all the people who need assistance. Anyone can join the call for peace by wearing their favorite PEACE FOR ALL UT, and UNIQLO looks forward to a successful continuation of the project.
