The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of persons on the autism spectrum disorder. We envision a society where Filipinos on the spectrum become the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive, socially-accepted citizens of an Autism-OK Philippines.

CBTL supports ASP

By: Cathy Genovia, ASP Program Assistant

Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf’s Give in to Giving has chosen Autism Society Philippines as one of its beneficiaries, on its 2nd year. CBTL Advocacy Fair was formally launched to the media and public at Glorietta 3 On December 5. ASP, together with the nineteen (19) other beneficiaries were welcomed warmly by organizers.

To educate the public on autism awareness, ASP brochures were distributed to patrons and autism merchandise were also sold like bookmarks, books, cds and shirts. Taupauline and posters of ASP programs and services are also displayed in the outlets: like the Family Support Group, Early Detection and Early Intervention Programs and Seminars.

During the concluded Autism Beyond Borders Conference, CBTL representatives gave a surprise visit to turn over a donation of Php25,000. The proceeds came from the CBTL Art Auction last year.

The said amount will be used for the expansion of the ASP Library which houses the largest collection of books and videos on autism in the Philippines and abroad. Visit our ASP Library at Rm 307, #47 ML Bldg. Kamias Rd., Quezon City or call 7-903-5496 for more details.

This year, two branches are designated to host the advocacy for ASP, Glorietta 3 and The Residences of Greenbelt Makati. For every 24 Cups of Goodwill with The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.

Every qualifying drink you purchase at CBTL Glorietta 3 and CBTL The Residences at Greenbelt Makati will help Autism Society Philippines. The promo period ends on January 31, 2010.
