Super Room to Read supporter Ogawa-san has organized a very unique new event--Beatles & Beers for Books! A lifelong Beatles fan, he wanted to combine three of his passions in support of Room to Read at his favorite rockin' bar, GABIGAGI in Shibuya.
In addition to tasty food & drink at the bar, the evening will also feature LIVE band performances of Beatles favorites, so be sure to mark your calendar and come on by for some musical fun for a great cause.
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 and gender equality in education. 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.
Come on out for a Friday evening of musical fun and frolic at GABIGABI (just a few minutes walk from Shibuya Sta.) and make lots of books for kids. Feel free to pass the info on and to bring your friends. Hope to see you there!
