Despite this being an unprecedented time of uncertainty and difficulty, Filipinos are not powerless. and as long as everyone thinks of and moves for each other, the Philippines will bounce back. 


This was the general sentiment of Pilipinas Shell Vice President for Retail Randy Del Valle as the nation celebrated this year’s Independence Day. With both the public and private sector standing together in solidarity during the pandemic, the nation is once again kindling the hope for a better tomorrow. 

Hold on to hope this Independence Day

In celebration of 122 years of independence, Pilipinas Shell forecourt staff, modern-day heroes who work to support the community, share origami doves for every guest in selected Shell gas stations. These doves have a simple message of hope that reveals itself when you assemble the origami.

“Everything we have witnessed through the Filipino has given us reason to hope that the country will continue to bounce back and move forward,” said Del Valle. “There is a lot more that we need to do as individuals and as communities for a better tomorrow. That’s why it’s important for us to hold onto this newfound hope. Let this origami dove serve as a reminder of this.” 


Del Valle emphasized the importance of Filipinos taking care of each other during this extraordinary time. Simple acts of kindness, such as lending a space in your car for other commuters or even a small gesture like sanitizing a shopping cart after you use it, can inspire others to be more compassionate. 

Make the most out of fueling up with Shell’s bounce back offers

Now that the Philippines has transitioned into lighter travel restrictions, Filipinos can visit Shell stations to get back on track. Customers can avail of 20 worth of items from Shell for every single purchase of either 750 or 500 worth of Shell FuelSave or Shell V-Power fuels respectively.

Participating stations also offer the Get Gas, Get Bigas promo, which gives customers one free kilo of rice for every purchase of either 2,000 or 1,500 worth of Shell FuelSave or Shell V-Power fuels, respectively. These promos are available until July 15 in select stations.

Shell Select convenience stores have also upped their safety standards by promoting strict observance of proper food handling. Shields have also been installed at the cashier to protect both customers and staff from the virus, and alcohol-based sanitizer is available at every station.

To keep themselves safe on the road, customers may also continue to bring their vehicles to Shell Helix Oilchange+ Lube Bays for regular maintenance. All mechanics and receptionists have been briefed on the company’s safety procedures and will thoroughly disinfect vehicles and other touchpoints both before and after each maintenance transaction.

Much like the heroes of the past, Shell’s modern-day heroes work hard today to build a better tomorrow. Through the safety measures and aid they provide for customers and the community, Shell aims to boost recovery efforts so that the Philippines can get back on track as soon as possible. 

“Sa bahay, sa trabaho, o kahit sa serbisyo ng isa’t isa, ang bawat isa sa atin may magagawa,” said Del Valle. “Basta’t laging may magmamalasakit, Pilipinas, kaya natin ‘to.”
