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
