Beers for Books at Kings Hardware in Ballard

Let's join Room to Read-Seattle Tuesday, September 24th from 7:00 - 10:00pm at King's Hardware in Ballard, for their Beers for Books event.

Buy a drink and proceeds will be donated to Room to Read's Local Language Publishing Program - producing treasured books for kids in places like Nepal, Cambodia, Laos and South Africa.

It may just be the easiest gift giving you've ever done -have a drink, give a book!

·  $1 from every King's Lemonade = 1 book

·  $4 from every pint of Fremont Brewing Company beer = 4 books

·  $13 from every pitcher of Fremont Brewing Company beer = 13 books!

Raffle tickets available for fun prizes... we'll have some other SWAG too!

Help us reach our goal of raising $1,500 which will produce 1,500 books!

    Sorry to bail a few hours before, but I'm working on a product launch and things are taking longer than I'd hoped. :( Hope to meet some of you soon!

    Just to clarify... you can't buy beer with books. It's the other way around, for every beer you buy, the proceeds fund books for kids in 10 countries that Room to Read operates. For example, one $4 beer pays for 4 local-language children's books, produced by Room to Read's own local language publishing group... using local in-country authors and artists to develop and present the stories. (Please don't bring books to the event, as the expense to ship them overseas is prohibitive.) - thanks!
