About This Fundraiser

Here is the deal. I have decided to fast for 16 hours each day for my health. That is between 10 pm and 2 pm the next day I will eat nothing. I figure I will save 10,000 won on breakfast and other stuff I might buy and pop in my mouth. That’s 70,000 won a week. What shall I do with such a windfall? I got it. I’ll donate it to TNKR. Every Friday I’ll settle up and send the monery to Information Into North Korea.
Anyone who is carrying around that spare tire and likes a challenge is welcome to join me. Lets do it till the matching goal is reached.

About TNKR 2019 Matching Donation Challenge

Originally named "English Matching," Teach North Korean Refugees has helped almost 400 North Korean refugees with adjusting to living outside of South Korea. We have done this on a tight budget, relying on our volunteers and fans. Despite our limitations, we have had a number of success stories and are a non-profit that North Korean refugees seek out.

We now have a fan who has offered us the most ambitious matching donation challenge. He says that in 2019, he will raise more money than I have for TNKR. Please accept this challenge along with me! He is in the finance industry, and confident he can twist enough arms to help us become more financially stable.

To be clear: your donations to this fundraising page will be matched. Doubled. If you give $100, it will become $200. If you give $500, it will become $1,000. If you give $5 a month, it will become $10 a month.

These donations are tax-deductible in the USA and South Korea.
