Continuing where we left off last year, BEER AND BASEBALL is back and Brendan and I are headed across the Pacific to Japan for some baseball-watching and beer-drinking ... so pretty much the same thing as last year, except the prices are in yen and the trains run on time.
Once again, I'm raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Last year, I raised $3,833 (thanks, Mom, for the distortingly large $3K donation) and I'd love to make it an even $5,000 total this year.
Because I have no idea exactly how far we'll travel, I thought it'd be more fun to have my supporters donate 120 yen for every new beer I try with the modest objective of 25. (Don't freak out, it's like $1 USD). Oh, and sake counts — it's brewed not fermented, so really it's closer to beer than wine.
For ¥120 per new beer - $25.00 - I will send you a postcard from Japan.
For ¥240 or more per new beer - $50.00 - I will bring you an awesome baseball souvenir from Japan and send you a postcard.
Please email me your address - email@example.com - so I can get you your prize.
Of course, a donation of any amount will be very much appreciated!
I will post EVERY new beer or sake on my Twitter so follow along: http://www.twitter.com/b_pad
