Atalyer’s Bento Box 2009 aka Bento9

Personally, the Atalyer’s Bento Box is the winner of the Battle of the 2009 planners. I like its nationalistic concept, its message of encouragement, hope, change and its Pinoy design. The only turn-off is that the Atalyer logo is prominently printed all over the stationery set like it was an Atalyer giveaway.

Bento9 contains a stationery set, which includes:

  • Three values cards with “Believe”, “Why Not?” and “Passion & Purpose” message
  • 19 full-color Filipino stickers
  • 12 full-color Filipino Flair notecards with envelopes
  • 12-full color Ermita coasters
  • 12 full-color Sticky Match Pads
  • Four Chief notepads
  • Calendar of 12 Reasons Why Life in the Philippines is Great
  • Notebook

Full Version (P975+Vat)
2nd Bento Sacher (P495)
Calendar only (P295)

Limited Edition Starbucks Coffee 2009 Planner

Most people don’t like the Starbucks planner this year. It is a thin, handy and hard-bound book. You can choose from three colors (red, black and blue). It comes with a Starbucks pen and a Starbucks bookmark.

You need a total of sixteen (16) stickers, one sticker for any of the featured products in each category , to get one (1) Limited Edition Starbucks Coffee 2009 Planner.

The Holiday featured beverages require 8 stickers and a choice of any of the following:
1. Dark Cherry Mocha (hot, iced or Frapuccino blended beverages)
2. Toffee Nut Latte (hot, iced or Frapuccino blended beverages)
3. Praline Mocha (hot, iced or Frapuccino blended beverages)

The remaining 8 stickers can be collected with the purchase of other Starbucks beverages of your choice.

Promo ends on January 6, 2009.

The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf Giving Journal

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (CBTL) Journal is a plain notebook with different covers from the artworks of renowned artists like Riel Hilario (Whatever Happened to Pygmalion and Galatea),
Christina Quisumbing Ramilo (Madre Simula-BIRTH), Augusto Albor
(Temperature), and Jose Tence Ruiz (Mana: TAKBU).

After you collect 12 stamps for 12 drinks, CBTL will not
only make a donation under your name for your chosen charity, but will
also give you this “Giving Journal”. I like CBTL’s effort of putting the advertising money to support charities instead of creating a better planner. Most people love the concept but still wish CBTL would have added more design in the pages of the journal or used recycled paper instead.

Coffee Bean commits to donate in your name to the following charities:

* Kababaihan Gabay sa Bayan (KAGABAY): P600 per child for kids’ education needs
* The Restorative Justice Program of Caritas Manila: P1,000 for values formation classes and materials per school year per inmate
* The Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS): medicine for animals under their care
* Bahay Tuluyan: a birthday present per child worth P250
* Haribon: adoption of a seedling
* Cartwheel Foundation: P8,000 for educational materials, curriculum development, tuition, teacher training for each student per school year
* Kythe: an unforgettable kids’ outing
* Autism Society Philippines (ASP): P2,000 for books needed by children to study
* Philippine Cerebral Palsy, Inc.: P1,800 per month per patient for medicine and rehabilitation
* Philippine Band of Mercy (PBM): P8,000 for the operation of each child
* Resources for the Blind: P1,000 for Braille textbooks
* Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP): medical consultation worth P200 for a child

If you donate to all 12 charities, you get a one-year supply of brewed coffee for FREE.
