The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Celebrates its #TraditionofGiving with the 10th year of its GivingJournal

I'm getting more excited each day as holiday cheer begins to fill the air and traditions come alive. Another thing I'm excited about is the The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf's #2018GivingJournal, and being able to share its holiday tradition of giving.

At The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Christmas is not only a time to be merry, but a time to remember that we each are called to live a life in fellowship with others by being generous; by knowing and understanding the needs of others and focusing on those needs above ours, not only during Christmas but throughout the rest of the year.

For The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, their holiday tradition has always been rooted in giving and in the outpouring and sharing of the blessings in our lives with one another, and the brand invites everyone to do the same.

Now on its 10th year of the Giving Journal, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf celebrates its journey of
giving through the years with a central theme: LEAVE A LEGACY. The brand dedicates its 10th year
to its purpose - to empower each individual to live excellently and purposefully by living a life of
service to others. They believe that each person has a responsibility to leave a legacy of profound
good, impacting the lives of others, and that is why for 2018, the brand encourages its community to
not only ask questions such as “What do I want to do?” Or “What are my goals?” but instead, to ask
one’s self “What are my roles?” and “What does the world need from me?” As we set our hearts on
another year, the The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®’s hopeful mission is this: to enable its community to
expand their vision by including others.

Every word in each page of the Giving Journal is thoughtfully written , meant to enable its readers to
reflect on their life’s purpose. An excerpt from one of the chapter articles goes:

The question for everyone alive today is this: What kind of legacy will you leave
behind? Will you leave a beautiful legacy for others to enjoy? Or will you leave a
legacy of debt, pain, poverty, and sin that the people who come after you will have to
pay for?

As a socially-responsible company, the legacy  hopes to leave behind is one that transforms lives and communities for the better. With a vision of multiplying its impact for its fellow Filipinos, it calls upon its own network of Team Members and Customers to do the same.

Every year, those who partake in the holiday tradition of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® by supporting their Giving Journal initiative is able to help live out the legacy of the Real LIFE Foundation, the direct beneficiary of the Giving Journal.

The Real LIFE Foundation exists to serve the poor in the Philippines by providing opportunities for
educational assistance and holistic development. Since established, Real LIFE has not only allowed
over 300 scholars from all over the country to earn a university degree, it has more importantly
empowered these scholars to meaningfully impact the lives of others as productive change agents for
good, much in the as way their own lives have been changed. Through the tremendous support we
receive each year for our Giving Journal campaign, we have been able to directly support the Real
LIFE Foundation, producing over 40 graduates- a number we commit to growing through the years as
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® sustains its efforts in nation building.

To make its 10th year even more special, the 2018 lineup of Giving Journals from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® comes with a customizable cover specially made for individuals who use art as a form of creative self-expression. Three other Giving Journals are available in colors of green, grey, and blue, with designs that reflect The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf ® ’s premium coffees and teas.
