It's that time of year for our 5th annual Halloween spooktacular to scare away childhood illiteracy worldwide.
We encourage you to come dressed up as your favorite literary character and enjoy a fun night of education, fundraising and B4B mirth making at Suji's, our long-term Beers for Books supporter.
For those of you new to Beers for Books, the concept is simple: For every drink you have 100 yen will be donated to Room to Read and that buys a treasured book for children via Room to Read.
Room to Read is an amazing NPO whose mission is to provide quality educational opportunities to children in developing countries with the goal of empowering kids via literacy. Room to Read has projects in 10 countries in Asia and Africa including Nepal, Cambodia, Zambia, etc. For more details see www.roomtoread.org or in Japanesewww.roomtoread.jp.
There is no cost to join the event but we'll have a 1000 yen suggested donation at the door which gets you three raffle tickets for the raffle prize drawing and your donation will fund 10 books for kids.
This event is open to everyone, so please feel free to share this information with friends. Come on out for a relaxed evening for a great cause!
