About This Fundraiser
North Korean refugees have braved incredible dangers to find their way to freedom.
Once in South Korea, many struggle with integrating, especially learning the large amount of English necessary to succeed in modern life. Starting from the bottom, many shy away from the financial burden of English lessons they need build a new career and support families.
Help provide a free, safe study space for refugees to meet with me and other volunteer English tutors. Help innocent people who have been through unimaginable pain to build new lives.
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.
