The Christmas season is definitely in the air as the days draw closer to December, the merriest month of each year!
Giving Journal 2017 Launch at CBTL Davao
At The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, the Christmas holiday season of giving is officially here with the launch of their 2017 Giving Journal in Davao City last November 12, 2016 at their CBTL store in SM Lanang Premier, one of their three branches here in the city.
We’re happy to be part of the Davao launch this year.
The Giving Journal launch was hosted by Ms. Tin Baldos and Ms. Donna Boniel of the CBTL marketing team who were also the ladies who welcomed us at the reception area when we arrived for the event.
While waiting for the short program of the launching event to start, guests enjoyed some of our fave treats to eat at CBTL.
These cookies have long been our fave ‘something to eat’ order especially of our dear little guy who requests for it every time then when we visit any of their shops in the city or elsewhere.
This time I found myself indulged in the goodness of their banana chocolate chip muffin while I had fun chatting with mommies and blogger friends who were there too in the event.
A few talented artists also volunteered to play music to fill the air with holiday cheer during the event.
A fun part of the launch was when we had to decorate each of the snowman and Christmas tree sugar cookies.
While it challenged our basic art skills, if ever we have any left, it was a meaningful and fun activity since all our decorated sugar cookies were to be donated to the children of the SOS Children’s Village here in Davao City.
May the kids appreciate these cookies given to them with love and prayers in our hearts for them that they may have good memories of Christmas as children.
Guests also had fun decorating their own CBTL cups too.
I dedicated more time on the cookies which will be given with love for the SOS children.
My boys did both and here are what they came up with and it came with CBTL’s logo! 🙂
These are some of the colorful Christmas cups done by other people.

Ms. Nella Lomotan, Associate Brand Manager of CBTL Philippines talked during the launch in Davao about The Giving Journal 2017, which you can read about by clicking on this link below to a separate post…
The Giving Journal 2017
We already spotted the new 2017 Giving Journals displayed at CBTL Abreeza last October 29 during our visit a week after the start of the stamp collection for this particular season.
Ms. Chil, CBTL’s very friendly store manager in Davao City also shared the news and gave me my own CBTL stamp card which I will hopefully still be able to complete by December.
In CBTL, you only need 12 stamps to complete the stamp collection and redeem your own choice of the 2017 Giving Journal among the four colors each representing a particular Giving Icon.
Know about those icons by clicking on the photo below.
Start your giving journey now…
Visit any Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf branch. Get you own stamp card from their friendly baristas. Start collecting those stamps to complete by purchasing participating drinks. Remember every cup helps one of their scholars so you get to enjoy a drink for a good cause in helping the REAL LIFE Foundation scholars. Once you complete the stamps, you can now redeem your own 2017 Giving Journal which are available in four colors each representing a particular Giving Icon.
Thank you to our friends from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf – Ms. Nella, Tin and Donna and also to Kharisse. Special mention to our friends in CBTL Davao – Ms. Chil, Ris and Hazel. Auween who was assigned in CDO, we miss you come back to Davao soon! We also miss Ms. Jean, Van, Angel, Ces, Faith, Rod and the rest of the first batch of baristas of CBTL Abreeza, their first Davao branch.
Thank you for the love, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf! 🙂
See you all at CBTL this holiday season!
Have a meaningful giving journey to all this 2017!
