The Coffee Bean Tea Leaf's Gift Giving Journal 2015

It’s the holiday season again and believe it or not, time has passed by so quickly that I couldn’t manage to keep up anymore. When “ber” months have started, you will start to hear holiday songs everywhere and people will start decorating their places with holiday trinkets.

My wire bookmark: star, heart and peace sign

But what it is really with Christmas season that makes it worthy? Is it purely by shiny trinkets hanging on the Christmas tree? Or by the endless list of wishlist that needs to be procured before the season? Or by making someone cheer up by sharing a part of us? Either way, we have our way of making it worthwhile. With so many gifts giving during Christmas season here and there, we can opt to do it in our own little way. 


Coffee and I have a good relationship ever since I can remember. My day will not be complete without it. When I learned about gift giving journal of Coffee Bean Tea Leaf, I knew I had to attend it. I never knew that my love for coffee can actually realize someone else’s dreams, not to mention help children send to school.

Who will be benefited from this gift giving? The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf creates partnership with various organizations. But more importantly, they were able to create much needed awareness for truly worthy endeavors like Habitat for Humanity and The Real Life Foundation.

The Real Life Foundation’s Executive Director Ms. Lynn Nawata explains how their foundation helps children and what differs them from others as well. They not only send marginalized children to school but they also teach them life lessons which they will need in facing the real world. Not only they send the children to school but also feed them so that children could function at their full potential. 

Engr. Ferdie Javier and Ms. Lynn Nawata (Executive Director of The Real Life Foundation)

One of the successful graduates of The Real Life Foundation and now an electrical engineer, Ferdie Javier, was so humbled to talk about how he was empowered to continue his dreams through the help of the foundation. Coming from a marginalized community, he continues to inspire others to continue their dreams.
