About This Fundraiser
NORTH KOREA—The world mourned another roadblock to progress this week as it was revealed that North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un was not dead. His sister, Kim Yo Jong, was slated to replace him upon his death, paving the way for murderous female dictators everywhere.
"The clock has been set back yet again," said feminist activist Claire Scholde. "North Korea was in the running to become a beacon of hope for women across the globe. Women could have looked at Kim Yo Jong and said 'look, a strong woman. She's like me. I can do that too. I can imprison people, torture my enemies, starve an entire country, tear apart families. Who can run the world's largest concentration camp? A woman can, that's who!'"
Scholde says the non-death of Kim Jong Un is just the patriarchy at work. "The greatest hindrance to feminine progress is men not dying. It's the epitome of sexism," Scholde added. "It just goes to show, Kim Jong Un is even more backward and regressive than his father and his father's father. At least they had the decency to die."
For the time being, North Korea will continue to be ruled over with an iron fist by Kim Jong Un, but hope remains that his sister could still replace him as soon as he dies of some other obesity-related disease because he is pretty, pretty fat.

September 5th!!! It is the birthday of TNKR Co-founder Casey Lartigue Jr!!
9월 5일은 TNKR의 공동대표, 케이시 대표님의 생일 입니다!!
Mr. Casey is an American now living and working in South Korea. Instead of working as a researcher or commentator in the USA, he has been working directly with North Korean refugees for 7 years. Even though he isn't Korean, he established TNKR in 2013 along with Eunkoo Lee. Behind-the-scenes, he counsels, mentors and sponsors North Korean refugees.
TNKR 케이시 대표님은 한국에서 거주하며 일하고 계시는 미국인 대표 입니다. 미국에서 충분한 월급을 받을 수 있는
연구자 혹은 애널리스트의 삶보다는 한국에서 탈북민들의 영어공부를 돕는 삶을 살고 있습니다. 그리고
2013년 이은구 대표님과 함께 TNKR을 세우는 등 7여년간 탈북민을 위해서 일하고 있습니다.
외국인임에도 불구하고, 탈북민들의 교육, 자유를 위해 끊임없는 열정을 가지고 있으며, 때로는 탈북민들의 상담자로, 멘토로 혹은 후원자로 함께하고 있습니다.
We asked Mr. Casey how we could celebrate his birthday this year.
We aren't surprised when he said: "A fundraiser for TNKR. All

Casey's great work. No contribution to this goal is too small,
