It’s almost December!
Last week I started making a list (and checking it twice, hehe) of the people who have made 2016 a year to remember. Those who are in the “nice” department are definitely going to receive presents that come from my heart. 🙂 The power of presents is so strong, I swear. Like last year, I was over the moon when I received presents from our students/their parents. They were simple presents, but I don’t care…they were presents nonetheless! I even postponed opening the gifts until after New Year because looking at them made my heart sing. Basta ang sarap makatanggap ng regalo, however simple it may be, as long as you know that the gift you receive was given a lot of thought. Loving and not grumbling thoughts, that is. 🙂
One of the things I often see on wish lists of people during the Holidays is a planner, especially the lovely planners from coffee shops. I guess it’s because as we ink the final pages of 2016, we look forward to the possibilities that lay ahead of us. And yes, because they’re pretty. Haha! That’s why my heart did cartwheels when I received my very own #TheGivingJournal from The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf! Look:
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.
What I love about The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®’s The Giving Journal is that it 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. Throughout the pages of the 2017 Giving Journal, every individual will find inspiration to brew their best year yet by becoming the best version of themselves, by making a positive difference in the world and living a life full of love and service for others.
Get your own 2017 Giving Journal to take part in the Giving Journey.
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. 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.
And aside from your own personal Giving Journey, through the 2017 Giving Journal, you also empower scholars by giving them gift of education through the Real LIFE Foundation, the Giving Journal’s beneficiary since 2011. By supporting their educational needs, you bring them one step closer to achieving their goals, enabling their dreams to take flight. Begin your Giving Journey by giving the gift of education this holiday season. <3
