MANILA, NOVEMBER 13, 2020 – Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, together with its new brand ambassador Kris Aquino, surprises three Filipino families with special deliveries just a few weeks before Christmas. With the festive season just around the corner, Shopee started the online initiative, My Shopee 11.11 Christmas Wish, asking users what they wanted to receive this holiday.
Most wishes were simple, heartwarming, and centered on earning enough to feed their families and sustain their current livelihood. Each of the three families received ₱50,000 in cash, ₱10,000 worth of ShopeePay credits, and a specific wish granted. On November 10, Shopee brand ambassador Kris Aquino personally delivered the gifts right to their doorsteps.

Ramel Magale works in the restaurant delivery service to support his parents and younger siblings. Shopee grants his wish for a motorcycle and can now deliver food to customers easily.
Lorna Nonong, 38
Lorna Nonong is a housewife, mother to three children, and caretaker to a relative with special needs. She sells seafood online while her husband works as a family driver. Shopee gave her a refrigerator and sari-sari store package to help support her family during these challenging times. Kris Aquino also donated an extra ₱10,000 cash to h
elp support her relative with special needs.
