Hey wine lovers, here’s your chance to support Beers for Books by participating in its more refined, but equally fun, B4B variation—Bottles for Books.
Yes, B4B works just as well for wine, and in some ways even better because not only does every glass of wine you have at the newly reopened Kimono Wine & Grill www.kimonowinebar.com create a treasured book for kids, Lauren sells bottles of fine wine too and that creates even more books!
(Don’t worry beer geeks, you can go along with your wine-loving friends because Kimono can accommodate you as well with their tasteful selection of craft beers from Japan and elsewhere.)
It’s a real win/win for everyone.
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.
For Bottles for Books, the Kimono Wine & Grill will generously donate one book for each drink you order, 300 yen per carafe, 500 yen for all bottles under 4500 yen, and 1000 yen for all bottles over 4500 yen.
Come on out to the Kimono Wine bar on May 19th and enjoy some excellent wines (or beer), a great group of people, and the warm atmosphere of their brand new place near Nogizaka Station. Please see this event page for more details or contact me or Lauren on Facebook if you have any questions. See you there!
