About This Fundraiser
Hello! I am Jinmi Kim who loves TNKR so much. I am in Boston now where my former boss Casey Lartigue spent his college life. And I wanted to do something that could be of a little help for TNKR which I love so much.
I was a student in TNKR, winner of the 7th speech contest and also worked at TNKR as a special assistant for last three months.
I was involved with TNKR by chance, but now I feel so lucky that I've got to know this great organization and they've become one of the big parts of my life. While intimately getting along with TNKR directors, staff and volunteers, I learned there are something in this world that's more valuable than just economical things. But to do something special, you all know that we need the minimum financial stability.
I hope TNKR more grow someday to be able to provide students with some space to study and do more good things for North Korean refugee students like me.
It would be so greatful, you become a part of making the history of TNKR. Let's do it together.
Thank you so much!
* I am enjoyng the first time ever of my visit to USA, and the lesson from Casey that he gave before I came here is so helpful to understand Harvard :)
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.
