CBTL GIVING JOURNAL 2017 LAUNCH IN DAVAO CITY #SeasonOfGivingNovember 18, 2016
It’s amazing how we’ve consumed time and past us by so fast we didn’t even notice it. I can’t even believe I’m nearing the last leaf of my Giving Journal 2016. I love that yellow Giving Journal of mine I’ve got from last year’s launch - neat and artsy. Just in case you ask, I didn’t put it on the shelf; I dutifully fill them in with my crazy everydayness.
Let me share you a page.
So don’t make a face when someone asked over a favour to hand in her or his ‘pamasahe’
to the driver. As unconsciously, you are actually doing simple act of kindness.
I’m happy I’m part of Giving Journal 2017 launch here in Davao again. I like how CBTL do their event. They always have something worthwhile to get our hands busy on. Last year it was learning how to do Calligraphy – yeah, like middle aged dog learning new tricks but I’m so glad I picked it right the first time. This is an art that needs time and constant practice and sadly I don’t have those.
This year is another awesome experience at the shop. We decorated Christmas cookies with edible pens. These cookies after they’re adorned with our art will be given to the kids at SOS Village, how noble a cause is that?
Well, I tried so hard to purge creative juices out of my head, but this is just the best my hands could give ... thought they’re lovely though! (Hehehe) I can't figure whether those are raisins or stars in my tree. Perspective is everything, you be the judge, lelz.
Busy peeps, borrowing pens 😂😂😂

And now let’s dig into the Giving Journal 2017.
It’s humbling to know that CBTL has come a long way at sharing this Giving Journal to its patrons. This is their 9th edition and I don’t think this will stop here.
The colours of Giving Journal 2017
12 stamps are all it takes and you're officially part of CBTL's giving journey
What’s so remarkable is that, this is not just your usual off-the-rack journal. CBTL’s Giving Journal is way more than that. When you decide to get yours, then you are officially part of CBTL’s giving journey. Part of the proceeds of the journal goes to the scholar beneficiaries of Real LIFE Foundation. Hence, you are not only getting a charming and sentimental Giving Journal, you are also helping change lives for the better.
So let’s take a look at Giving Journal 2017.
This year’s edition has four colours and each represents CBTL's commitment to give back to the community whilst promoting goodwill and social responsibility.
The Gray has Caring Cup Global stamp. Giving back to the coffee farmers who work hard to have every quality bean brewed right into your cup. This also aims to provide them with sustainable livelihood and education for their children.
The Purple represents Overflows. Acknowledging life that overflows.
The Blue with Coffee Tree Cup symbol represents nurturance of growth and providing better lives for others, one cup at a time.
I chose the Pink Journal, the symbol says Radiating Heart - the power to spread goodwill lies within our hearts.

Unlike last year's where it's all artsy watercolors on the pages, this year holds an ample number of sketched pages. I find this journal so sentimental, like I can't afford to write negativities, but just pure life bliss and living on. And this is also a nice piece to color, in case you want alternative to writing.
Inspirational verses and famous lines from famous people are also included.
The usual coupons are also present and nice vintage writing pages.
Thanks a lot CBTL. I'll promise to put this into good use. 'Till next year!
