About This Fundraiser

Dear friends & allies,

Please consider donating to my fundraiser supporting Teach North Korean Refugees (TNKR) Global Education Center!

I joined TNKR in June 2016 to help out with a human rights campaign supporting Mr. Hwang In-cheol, whose father is among the 11 victims of aerial hijacking that was committed by North Korea in December 1969. I stayed on with TNKR because I wanted to continue helping Mr. Hwang, and because I have come to deeply respect TNKR's commitment to its North Korean refugee students (who are without a doubt some of the most beautiful souls I have ever met).

But TNKR needs help; it is a tiny start-up with a very small budget. To continue supporting our North Korean students and provide hope to people like Mr. Hwang, TNKR needs the generous help of people like you.

Any amount helps and will be deeply appreciated. Thanks in advance for your solidarity. :)

PS: Please also sign our petition urging the international community to help REPATRIATE Mr. Hwang's father:

About TNKR 2019 Matching Donation Challenge

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.

If you have trouble donating via this website then contact me directly for other options. or
