It’s good that along with your goal of beginning 2020 with the right mindset, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf takes on a fresh take on the holiday season through their Gifting Grateful Campaign.

Since 2011, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and the Real LIFE Foundation have been working together towards nation building through empowering our nation’s underprivileged youth.

Gifting Grateful and 2020 Giving Journal Launch in Cagayan de Oro City

Last November 16, The Coffee Bean and Leaf Tea launched their Gifting Grateful Campaign in their Limketkai Gateway Park Branch, and I am so grateful to be invited in their launch.

I enjoyed re-learning the art of giving. They walked us through different booth consisting the right attitude that we must have: Cheer, Thankful, Joyful, Happiness, Dream, Grateful, and Celebrate Together. Each booth had us an activity to do.

In Cheer, we have to choose our drink. I chose White Chocolate Dream.

For Thankful, we were given Thankful Card that we could give to a person we are thankful for.

In the Joyful booth, we were given chocolate cookies uniquely formed equivalent to Friendship and being joyful in our lives.

For Happiness, we visited the Gifting Grateful photo booth and smiled at the camera.

We were then challenged to do a meaningful Flat Lay Photo in the Dream booth. The flat lay should show the true meaning and vision or dream of Gifting Grateful Campaign through the Giving Journal 2020.

For Grateful, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s partner foundation, Real LIFE Foundation oriented us about their current project with Bulua National High School. They have 20 scholars given with free tuition fee, miscellaneous fees and monetary support for other needs, and this will continue until they finish college. We also learned that aside from the scholarship, the foundation also provides regular orientation like reminding them about the right values, for them to be citizens for others and for each to be someone in the future.

I just hope that more people and more volunteers will do the same because I believe each simple step is a great step in changing the world to be better.

I finally completed the tour!

And in Celebrating Together, bloggers and visitors gathered together with a good food and did meaningful conversations. I was also happy to bond once again with my CDO Bloggers family.
