About This Fundraiser
TNKR co-founder Casey Lartigue will be traveling from South Korea to the USA! Some of our fans have expressed interest in supporting this trip during much of April 2019. We need many things for this trip:
* PowerPoint: We need to show all of the great stuff TNKR has been doing.
* Speaking opportunities--such as to speak to business, organizations, foundations, churches, anyone who would be interested in supporting TNKR's message. We can ask people to fly us to them, but in other cases, we will need to pay our own way. So far, we have speaking opportunity requests in DC, Tennessee, and Florida.
* Get the word out! If you are in the USA and would like to host an event or connect us with others who could support TNKR's growth, let us know!
* If you would like to support this trip, let us know!
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.
