I HAVE never been so excited with a planner before.

Personally, I don’t usually use planners because I tend to find them to be too bulky to bring around but I won’t deny the fact that they are very useful. Plus, if I have one, I usually forget to write on it.

However, this time around, I might find myself doodling, taking down notes, or writing down appointments and important reminders on Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (CBTL) Philippines’ 2018 Giving Journal.

I have to say, this year’s Giving Journal has got to be my favorite one to date, from the design to its content, I find everything to be well thought off and beautiful.

The planners come in four different designs — green, gray, blue, and the customizable cover in white and gold. For those who love to doodle or personalize their planner, be sure to get the one with a customizable cover.

This year’s Giving Journal centers on the theme, “Leave a Legacy.”

“We dedicate the 10th year of our Giving Journal to its purpose — to empower each individual to live excellently and purposefully by living a life of service to others. We believe that each person has a responsibility to leave a legacy of profound good, impacting, and changing lives,” CBTL said.

In an Instagram post, CBTL said each 2018 Giving Journal redeemed will help transform lives of Real LIFE Foundation scholars.

Inside the planner, you will not only see dates, lines, and boxes but it also highlights CBTL Philippines’ corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs, its partnerships with various charitable organizations, and how the company empowers its team members. The planner also encourages you to give back to the community.

The 2018 Giving Journal was introduced to the members of the Davao media and local digital influencers last November 11 at the CBTL store in SM Lanang Premier, Davao City.

To avail of the Giving Journal, simply get your ticker card at any CBTL store and complete it. The rest of the mechanics to avail of the planner are listed on the ticker card.

Whether it is for yourself or to somebody special, the 2018 Giving Journal will make a great gift.
