This is how JEN’s BOOK MAGIC works.
Old books, old CDs, DVDs and videos lying around in your house, school, or office… never to be read again… Pack these in a card box, and NIPPON EXPRESS (Pelican-bin) will come pick it up anywhere in Japan, free of charge. Used-book store BookOff will then buy these items, and a part of it will be used in JEN’s “School Support Program” in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Sudan.
You can tidy up your room, recycle books and CDs, and at the same time contribute for a good cause! Your participation helps make children’s dream come true…
