Donations wanted for Books Doing Good at JALT2012 (by Oct. 8)



For those in Japan, once again, our call goes out for people to donate English language books (But NOT books for the teaching or studying of English or other languages) for Books Doing Good. It's the fourth time round for this.

The donated books will be offered in exchange for donations (minimum donation ¥100) at the annual JALT conference this coming October 12-15. Money raised from Books Doing Good is donated to the charity, NPO-Lesa, which distributes scholarships and study materials to HIV-positive children in northern Vietnam.

We are looking for novels, self-help books, travel books, anything really that you think might be of interest to people coming to JALT. This year too we will accept children's books.

If people are in the west of Japan they can send books to:

(有)トラベルマン 880-0913宮崎市恒久1-2-18
Travelman Ltd, Tsunehisa 1-2-18, Miyazaki-shi, 880-0913, Japan
Tel: 0985-41-6611

People in Kansai, Chubu, Kanto areas and points north can send books to:

ABAX Ltd.神奈川県川崎市高津区久地4-24-5, 新川屋センタービル3F
ABAX Ltd. Kanagawa-ken, Kawasaki-shi Takatsu-ku, Kuji 4-24-5, Shinkawaya Center Building, 3F
Tel: 044-813-2909

Everything should arrive by Monday, October 8th at the latest. Though books can also be dropped off at Books Doing Good directly at the JALT conference.

Please label all sent boxes ‘Books Doing Good’ and thanks for your support!!

You can send books collect!
