Event Description

Please join us in for Booktoberfest 2013, our 5th annual event, and part of a global celebration of literacy during Booktober (the month formerly know as October).

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. For more details see or in Japanese

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.




Beers For Books が主催するイベントのコンセプトは簡単です。

お立ちよりいただき、飲み物を頼んでいただくだけで(普段と料金は変わりません!)お店から100 円(=本一冊分)が寄付される仕組みです。寄付金は、ROOM TO READ というNGOを通じて、それぞれの国の現地語で書かれた良質な本の購入にあてられます。

*ROOM TO READ は、発展途上国の子どもたちに教育の機会を与えるために世界中で目覚ましい成果をあげているNGOです。世界中の子どもたちの識字率を上げるだけではなく、男女の子どもたちに平等に教育の機会を与えるために力を尽くしています。これまでにネパール、カンボジア、ザンビアを含むアジア・アフリカの10カ国で短期間に素晴らしい業績をあげてきました。 or in Japanese
