About This Fundraiser
Hi Everyone! SJ and I are getting married this year and we would love if people would donate to TNKR in place of big gifts! I have been involved with TNKR for the past year and have loved getting to learn about North Korea and the people who have lived there. At TNKR I have been able to tutor students, host a movie night, hear North Korean speeches, meet famous North Koran authors, and learn so much about refugees and the struggles they have. I hope that you can learn more about TNKR and donate to this organization so they can continue to be financially stable and help even more refugees in the future!
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.
