SANTA Claus has been known to cheer kids with presents, but who helps him do the task of delivering each special gift to make sure that all children get a smile on their face during the happiest time of the year? It’s the reindeers!

This Christmas, Megaworld and its corporate social responsibility (CSR) arm Megaworld Foundation are helping deliver to kids a priceless gift–the gift of smile.

The real estate giant will transform all of its townships across the country into a Reindeer Park filled with reindeer displays made of wooden cut-outs in different sizes ranging from 10 to 15 feet tall, all of which with a corresponding amount.

All proceeds will then be handed to the Operation Smile Philippines Foundation, which gives free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for children throughout the country.

Painting of donated reindeers in various Megaworld townships has started last Nov. 7, which coincided with the “Smile Day” Philippines celebration.

At The Mactan Newtown, Megaworld’s first township project in Cebu, Operation Smile’s Cebu partner and chairperson of MSY Holdings Corp. Mariquita Salimbangon-Yeung and Megaworld Cebu Properties Inc. president Noli D. Hernandez led the launching of the charity program.
