My band Cheats has a song called Sleepist. It’s a fan favorite because of how relatable it is – it’s all about wishing you had no work today and wanting to just sleeeeeeeeeep again. I jokingly call it the anthem of the privileged millennial (i.e. “magpasalamat nga tayo na may trabaho tayo, no?!” LOL) although can you really say you’ve never wished you could just call in sick to spend a few more hours in bed? It’s totally normal to complain 😁
In between late night gigs and early morning meetings, I count my lucky stars when I get enough rest. I really need a cup of coffee to perk myself up for the day and I’m very thankful for quiet time alone.
We caption our Instagram photos with “coffee is life” with little regard to the fact that for a lot of people, coffee is literally their life. Our local coffee farmers work so hard to provide for their families and to provide us with our daily dose of caffeine.
I’m happy to share that 7-Eleven has teamed up with Foundation for Sustainable Coffee Excellence (FSCE), a non-profit organization dedicated to creating a better and more sustainable local coffee industry, to come up with a Cup of Thankful from City Blends.
For each Cup of Thankful sold, 7-Eleven will give P.50 to FSCE. Funds raised through this campaign will help supply our local coffee farmers with various post-harvest facilities to help speed up production. So with more sips of Cup of Thankful, our farmers are more and more thankful for your help.
There are three special cup designs you can choose from: a red one to celebrate LOVE, a green one to celebrate LIFE and a brown one to celebrate anything you want!
Just this past 7-Eleven Day (July 11 as in… 7-11… I KNOW, RIGHT?!), people got to enjoy their 12-oz A Cup of Thankful for only P20! The promo lasted until July 16 and customers were truly thankful for the treat.
Always remember to be thankful for what you have and share a Cup of Thankful today. If you want to post your cup on social media, make sure to include the hashtags #711ACupofThankful #711ph #711Day2017
