Twice a year, FBC offers a benefit to international schools where a 5% kickback is given as a donation for all orders within a given week. The fourth week in March is the TIS benefit week, and so if you order anything from FBC and designate Tsukuba International School as the beneficiary, FBC will make a donation. (If you miss out on this particular week and order any other time, if you similarly designate TIS, FBC will still donate 2%.) FBC now is selling DVD players that can play DVD's from any country for under 10,000 yen. Most DVD players sold in Japan can only play Japanese DVD's and will not play US or other DVD's. For further information, contact Tim Boyle at 855-1907.
