Shopping can be rewarding especially if you know that what you’ve made a well-spent purchase is for a greater cause. Crate and Barrel, together with Cribs Foundation Inc., hosted a Shopping Day for a Cause at their SM Makati store on April 18, 2018.
Crate and Barrel shoppers enjoyed a special 20% off on all regular priced items from 10AM-10PM on April 18. Crate and Barrel gave back a part of the proceeds to the projects and efforts of Cribs Foundation Inc., a non-profit organization in the Philippines, providing a loving and safe environment for the abandoned, neglected, surrendered babies and minor female minor survivors of sexual abuse.
As I walked through the elegant Crate and Barrel store in SM Makati, I mentally placed all the pieces of furniture in my home. I have always loved the warmth and sophistication of their furniture pieces.
From your living room to your bedroom, it’s impossible not to find what you’d like for your own home at Crate and Barrel.
Crate and Barrel is also upholding a greater responsibility in encouraging inspiring conversations among their shoppers through Crate Conversations. First launched last February 28, 2018, the intimate, open mic talk aims to spark a dialogue between the speaker and the guests, to create a moving, dynamic, conversation.
The second leg of Crate Conversations featured an empowered woman who is both a yoga and wellness advocate. Marilen Elizalde shared some of her fitness wisdom and the importance of having a balanced lifestyle. Her talent, and eye for design, coupled by her passion for humanitarian efforts, makes her the perfect person to spark a great conversation.
As someone also going through her own wellness journey, I was interested in her perspective of her fitness journey. The takeaway I got is that you are in control of your own wellness. It does take plenty of determination and self love to continue on.
Crate and Barrel stores are located at SM Megamall, SM Makati, and SM Aura Premier.
