CBTL: Giving Journal 2017 ♥

by - October 31, 2016

The holiday season means so many things to us. It is the start of Christmas songs, the gathering of families, the season of giving, the mark of the year ending and the beginning of a new year filled with possibilities. :) 

As the Christmas season approaches and a new year draws near, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf reminds us that life is not about what we amass for ourselves, but about how we can share our gifts, talents, and time with others. After all, love and sharing is the essence of Christmas, right?

Ever since I got the CBTL planner two years ago, I have always been a huge fan and await their new design every year. :) But what really warms my heart about the Giving Journal of CBTL is that, they are not just releasing new planners every year, but helping out the Real LIFE Foundation. :)

The foundation is the Giving Journal's beneficiary since 2011 and through the 2017 GIVING Journal, we help empower scholars by giving them the gift of education. So, you're not just getting this cute planner, but also helping out in the education of someone.  ^_^ 

With Helen and Phya doodling on our CBTL Cups!

Been supporting The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Giving Journal launch for three years already and I wouldn't want to miss this ever! :)

At the launch, we got to do several activities that can be found on the Bingo card given to us. Once completed, we instantly get two stamps for our stamp collection!

One of the activities that we got to do was to form the given words in the box. Whoever has the less time is the winner. :) I'm not sure who won, but so far the time that I got was 59 seconds, I think the fastest one during the event. But maybe someone got it under 30! Hehe! :)

From October 22 onwards, customers can already begin their Giving Journey as the collecting of stamps for the 2017 Giving Journal commences in all The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf stores.

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is a brand that never forgets its roots. It gives back in every way it can, not limiting itself to its partners, but also to numerous organizations that support those in need. Locally, the brand has long-term partnerships with Habitat for Humanity and Real LIFE Foundation. It is also intentional about involving its community in various advocacies - from the environment, to street children, to the elderly, to people with illnesses or disabilities - through monthly outreach events that seek to advocate the spirit of volunteerism.

Bought one HOPE in a bottle to help out even just a little. This is the mineral water that is also being sold at every CBTL store. :)

Tried out the paint stenciling :)

Each stamp card consists of 12 circles with corresponding purchased drink assignments. All 12 stamps must be accumulated in one stamp card to claim the journal. A box of CBTL capsules earns the customer two stamps, while any CBTL Single Serve Beverage System purchase automatically allows a customer to claim the 2017 Giving Journal. :) 

Will be reviewing The Giving Journal in a separate blog post, so do watch out for that! ^_^

Available in 4 colors - rose, purple, gray and turquoise, the Giving Journal is a useful planner and a medium for generosity where you can begin writing the beautiful story of your own Giving Journey. 

Begin your Giving Journey by giving the gift of education this holiday season.
