Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf's 2015 Giving Journal.

One of the most visited coffee shops in the Philippines, The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf will be releasing their 2015 Giving Journal that will greatly help The Real Life Foundation with its latest campaign. They always make it a habit to help others in a way that they can and it gets bigger annually involving their Giving Journal. Their latest campaign merely focuses on sharing the company's passion for Giving, Sharing and Community.
Last October 16, 2014, the coffee shop had its official heads up for their upcoming Giving Journal for the year 2015. The event started with a bookmark design challenge using a soft wire (making an artwork has always been a real-life challenge for me) creating a single word that will best describe what do I want to happen in my life as 2015 comes near. I made the word "Best" because I believed that growing up should never have any room for mediocracy. On top of what I did, I spotted some bloggers' good handcrafts that definitely described what they wanted to happen to them for 2015.
As we respectively finished our own wire-arts (thanks to Ana Gonzales for helping me!) we proceeded to the event proper laying on the table the importance of the label partnering with Real Life Foundation through their annual Giving Journal. Giving a brief description, Real Life Foundation is a non-government organization which seeks to help deserving financially-challenged young individuals to finish college through their scholarship program. Not just about providing good education, they also help these kids through life coaching, boosting their morale on what they want to achieve in the future after they finish their studies. This coaching will equip them with ample skills and attitudes that will definitely help them when they are on their own. Since 2008, the foundation has already produced 1000 scholars with over 200 university graduates that exemplify The Real Life Group's core of Leadership, Integrity, Faith and Excellence.

Closing the event with Walden Chu (CEO of The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf in Philippines), talking about making a huge difference by growing up to be the best versions of ourselves. To come up with a realization that we are blessed with tons of opportunities and should be able to give back to the community. He also emphasized that he prayed that The Giving Journal will be meaningful by helping us brew our best year and will always be the person who is always capable of loving, giving, sharing and serving.
