Event Description

日本語 は英文の下をご覧下さい。

Please mark your calendar and plan to join us for a VERY special Beers for Books celebration with Room to Read founder John Wood at one of Tokyo's finest traditional Japanese-style venues, Happo-en.

John will make a short presentation around 9PM and will share with you some of the latest developments with Room to Read and together we'll honor the magic of books and the power of literacy in a really fun way.

Not only will we be celebrating the 1st year since the launch of Beers for Books, we also estimate we might even break the 50,000 book mark (with your help ;-)) at the event.

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 9 countries in Asia and Africa including Nepal, Cambodia, Zambia, etc. For more details see www.roomtoread.org or in Japanese www.roomtoread.jp.

The cost of this event will be only 3,000 yen in advance/3500 yen at the door and includes light food and 2 drinks with every drink creating one book for kids. More details to follow, but for now, please save the date, plan to be there, and tell everyone you think might be interested in joining us.

We're just a few days away from the big event and things are going very smoothly. All we need is just for a bunch of people to show up and have a good time. Please feel free to share the info with anyone in Kanto who you think might enjoy a fun night out for a good cause. We've got info here, on Facebook, Mixi, etc. and people are using Twitter, blogs, etc. to get the word out to make sure everyone knows about it. And here's a link to a Japanese flyer for the event:

I'm going to apologize in advance for messaging a lot during February about this event. I really want to get a good crowd out to have a good time at Happo-en and to hear from John Wood about the incredible things Room to Read is doing for childhood literacy.

PLEASE help my get the word out about this special evening by blogging it, tweeting it, inviting your Facebook friends (it's easy--just takes a couple clicks). Let's make it a fun night for a great cause! Thanks for your support.

Cheers, Gary
