The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf's 2017 Giving Journal #SeasonOfGiving #GivingJournal2017 #CBTLPh

Christmas season is a celebration of the birth of Christ. It's also a time of gathering of families, relatives and loved ones. It's filled with laughter, joy and happiness  and not to forget that Christmas is a season of sharing and giving especially those less fortunate brothers and sisters of ours.

There's no better way to share the warmth of the season than by generously pouring into the cups of those in needs. That's why, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf reminds everyone that life is about what we can contribute to the world during this season.

The Season of Giving 

As the Christmas season approaches and as we marks the end of the final pages of 2016, we look forward to the possibilities that lay ahead of us.

It's my first time to attend the CBTL Giving Journal. I don't know about CBTL Advocacy. I thought Giving Journal is just an ordinary planner/journal, it doesn't slip my mind that it is a journal that gives.

Available in 4 colors- rose, purple, gray and turquoise 

The CBTL 2017 Giving Journal started from the incredible rise of the word "selfie" to the many articles and posts about "loving yourself first". There 's nothing wrong with sharing (sharing is actually good!), what is we need here is the way we reflect our motives for sharing.

That is why CBTL launched the Giving Journal, to remind us all that life is not about what we gather for ourselves but what we give back about what we bless the world with.

The Cup that Changes Lives 

Throughout the years, starting from 2010, the Giving Journal's evolution, from different designs and theme, one thing has remained: the CBTL commitment to giving and to making lives better, one cup at a time.

The 2017 Giving Journal has each month of the year begin with sketch that symbolizes various commitments of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf(CBTL). It highlights their partners organizations advocacies and how we all can take action in getting involved through out its pages.

The Giving Icons

Caring Cup Global (Gray Journal) - giving back to the farmers and community who work hard to supply The CBTL with Simply The Best products. The cup image aims to provide the farmers and the community as well with their needs.

Radiating Heart (Rose Journal) - the power to spread goodwill. The image signifies how we can live up to the essence of giving by performing little acts of kindness towards others.

Coffee Tree Cup (Turquoise Journal) - The CBTL hopeful mission, together with their partners organizations, they can help to nurture growth and provide a better life.

Overflows (Purple Journal) - Brewing your best year by developing one's self, have strong will to reach your full potential by sharing your gifts and blessings with others.

The Real LIFE Foundation is CBTL partner organization committed to serving the poor through education, character development, and community service. In this, every Giving Journal redeemed throughout the holiday season will enable the dreams of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf's scholars to take flight.

Throughout the pages of the 2017 Giving Journal, every individual will find inspiration to brew their best year 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.

AlaskaMazing Moms 2016: The Search for the Next Ginang Alaska in Davao City #GinangAlaska #AlaskaMazingMoms

Ginang Alaska is back but repackaging its event to a much better concept of a search. The Alaska-Mazing Moms 2016, is not just a beauty pageant being known for but changing it to
a well-rounded persona of a mother to her family and to her community.  They are finally looking for moms ages between 21-35 years old and legally married with at least 1 child. You can check all participating cities and corresponding event dates here and see if you are qualified.

It's so nice to see how women changed from time to time. I can understand how change is happening, balancing both works and family, there's no need to rephrase it to make it more palatable to those who don't agree with its worth. No matter how difficult it is or how hard we work, we don't mind it. For as long as we raise our family to a person we wanted them to be, and opted to bring into the world is a privilege, and calling it anything else is ignorant and condescending.

Congratulation to the Davao City Alaska-mazing Moms:

2nd Runner Up: Conchiga Camporedondo - Ginang No.1
1st Runner Up: Meriam Perez - Ginang No.12
Grand Winner: Ailene Caracol - Ginang No. 8

The AlaskaMazing Moms is an eye-opener to me, not because I am a woman, but as a single mom to two tweens. The ALASKA vision to bring women with respect and beautifully achieve the hope and ambitions each moms should achieved in life. Hope soon they will include "SINGLE MOM" to their qualification to join AlaskaMazing Moms 2017.
