About This Fundraiser
Who would have ever believed the young boy in that photo would move to South Korea and start an organization helping North Korean refugees learn English? And yet it happened!
The much older and less cuter version of that young boy is donating up $1,000 to TNKR, depending on how much of that amount is matched by others. If less than $1,000 is donated, then he will use the rest of it to buy video games to pretend he is still a cute young boy!

On March 1, 2012, I made a commitment to get involved with helping North Korean refugees. After a year of getting involved with various activities, on March 3, 2013, I co-founded along with South Korean researcher Eunkoo Lee an organization helping North Korean refugees.
Originally named "English Matching," Teach North Korean Refugees has helped more than 350 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.
