Aussie Cricket Player helps out Room to Read

On the 30th of June, one of the most recognized names in cricket will be helping to fund the Room to Read event, ‘Beer for Books’.  Shane Watson will be the The Pawn in Wan Chai (Hong Kong) donating $10 for every beer.  When the Aussie Champion All-Rounder was asked about his feelings he responded “Reading is the most important skill you can have, without [the ability to read], it’s that much harder to achieve your goals. People who don’t have the opportunity can get stuck in a certain environment.”

Watson has been a Room to Read ambassador for some time and has helped promote events around the world.  For the ICC Cricket World Cup, the partnership benefited over 20,000 young people.

This will be a great night to help with a great cause and meet a world famous athlete that wants to offer his time to help as well.
