Yen Bar, a legendary drinkers' bar in Shibuya is hosting its 1st Beers for Books event Thursday, July 15th from 7PM - 11PM. Come join Ono-san and Blake as they serve cold beers and tasty cocktails at the bar along with delicious tapas from the kitchen, all for a great cause.
For those of you new to B4B, 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 9 countries in Asia and Africa including Nepal, Cambodia, Zambia, etc. For more details see www.roomtoread.org or in Japanese www.roomtoread.jp.
