Twice a year, the Foreign Buyer's Club allows its members to designate orders they make during a specific week towards a fund raiser for international schools. Tsukuba International School is taking advantage of this offer by designating the first week of March as its Spring FBC order day. Any orders placed during that week (March 1-6) and designated as being applied to TIS' fund raiser will result in FBC donating 5% of the amount of the order to the school. This can be done by anybody, whether they live in Tsukuba or not, and it doesn't cost them anything extra. So if you have friends somewhere else in Japan who might be placing an order that week, ask them to put down Tsukuba International School in the space indicated for "organized school/group special orders".
