The Giving Journal by The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf


As the season of giving draws nearer, there are people who count every second until Christmas, and there are those who sit in the corner of their rooms watching “ The Grinch” while playing Last Christmas in the background, probably being bitter about love (#hugot lines are welcome Whether you happen to be the green monster who stole Christmas or you just don’t feel inspired this season, just know there are presents in stores for you!

Allow me to sprinkle fairy dusts unto you with good news and pure bliss this Christmas as The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf unleashes The Giving Journal. Not only does it provide pages for organizing your monthly events, it serves as a helping hand to the less fortunate kids.

In partnership with Real LIFE foundation, The Coffee Bean continuously supports the educational needs of the less fortunate children. Looking back, they have sponsored 38 university scholars since 2011, and 13 of which have already graduated!

It has always been a tradition for them to give back to less fortunate communities with their outreach programs and now is the time for you to be part of it. Just complete your stamp card by purchasing an Original Ice Blended Espresso/Coffee-based, or Tea-based Beverage, Hot Chocolate/Hot Vanilla, or SBTL capsules. Complete all 12 stamps and claim your 2016 Giving Journal. For every claimed journal, you get to help scholars reach their dreams!
The journal is not limited to a simple notebook for planning your entire year, it holds the purpose to “inspire each individual to pursue their passions and find meaning and fulfillment in everyday moments, while providing them the opportunities to give back by helping others.”

The Giving Journal 2015 aims to brew each individual’s best years with its pages of encouraging self-development and finding meaning in everyday moments. It sure is the season of love. No more green hairy monsters!

You will be surprised to know what’s inside the planner. Here’s a hint. Okay nevermind I’ll just spill the beans!
