Kifubon Project

     

“I would like to help share this message of hope
around the world”

Kifubon means book donation or contribution (寄付本)in Japanese.

The Kifubon project provides a wonderful opportunity for you to directly share this message with people around the world and your ongoing support is most welcome and needed to provide books for the next wave of donation activities which are focused on the new illustrated book 'The Stonecutter'(Japaese version).

The Kifubon project is extremely dear to us at Bunya publishing.
Through this project we are touching hearts and sharing a message of hope and strength.
