8 Things We Love About the 2018 Giving Journal by CBTL
By Therese Aseoche
To us Filipinos, the beginning of the holiday season is marked by malls playing Christmas songs, dazzling storefront displays, and planner collecting! And among all the planners we’ve seen throughout the years, The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf’s Giving Journal has always stood out for promoting social responsibility, giving back to the community, and inspiring individuals to be the best they can be.
CBTL graciously invited 8List to their planner reveal, and these are the 8 things we can’t stop gushing about!
For the first time in 10 years, CBTL will be releasing a planner with a cover you can color and design on your own. Perfect for all the artsy people out there!
Sleek and Relaxing Colors
The Giving Journal will also be available in green, black and navy blue — very relaxing and neutral colors that will fit any person of different genders and varying tastes across generations. Each will also feature different cover designs too — tea leaves for the green cover, coffee beans for the black cover, and geometric shapes for the navy blue cover.
At the back pocket of your planner, you’ll find a nice surprise! The Giving Journal includes a sheet of adorable stickers you can put on your planner, notebooks, cases, or wherever else you’d want to stick them on to.
An inspiring theme
On its 10th year, The Giving Journal is dedicated to empowering us to live a purposeful life with this theme “Leave a Legacy” through ways that involve not only ourselves but others as well. It challenges us to think about what we want to change and how we’ll change within the next year to better serve those surrounding us.
