Chabo!--Read a Book and Pledge Your Donation

Earthquakes, cyclones, poverty, political instability, and unfortunately, the list goes on...

There are so many issues all around the world that are impossible to ignore. The first step is to be aware of what is going on and be compassionate. The second move is to act in order to rescue these survivors and sufferers.
You can pledge your donation now by purchasing a book through Chabo!

Chabo! is a charity system which has been established based on the idea of Kazuyo Katsuma, a Japanese best-selling author, with efforts of other fellow authors.

The following is the English translation of "About Chabo!" from Chabo! website, translated by Karen.
We are delighted to introduce you to Chabo!, a new way of international cooperation.
