Kevin Ramsden is well-known in Kyoto’s expat community for his tireless and creative fundraising efforts for charitable causes. This Christmas he has come up with a new fundraising initiative: a collection of eight short stories he has both written and published himself – with all proceeds going to support the educational needs of children in rural areas of Cambodia and Zimbabwe. All the stories are set in contemporary Kyoto or Osaka and you can read a sample from the first story thanks to Amazon’s “Look inside” function. Kevin writes,
“Every 8 -10 copies sold will pay the school fees for an AIDS orphan in Zimbabwe for one year, or support one Cambodian child with the materials and teaching support they need for a year. This is not a great deal for us, but can provide a life changing moment for a little one in the developing world. You can buy either an ebook or a paperback version and know very well that you will be helping someone else. That’s got to make you feel good! Right? Anyway, check it out for yourself and PLEASE share with family and friends.”
Here Comes Kenji: and Other Stories from Contemporary Japan by Kevin Ramsden is available as both Kindle e-book and paperback from Amazon.com, Amazon.co.jp, and Amazon.co.uk. Kevin’s goal is to sell a thousand copies and if you help him reach his goal you can also rest assured that 100% of the royalties will go to fund the following good causes:
A small NGO building schools and providing educational supplies and support to children near Siem Reap in rural Cambodia. They really need help in these difficult times so that they can maintain and build on their great work.
An NGO committed to supporting AIDS orphans in Zimbabwe with daily necessities, school fees, and school supplies. It only costs about USD 25 to send a kid to school for a year, but these kids have no source of income and no fees means no school.
