About This Fundraiser
I have joined a wonderful organization, TNKR, Teaching North Korean Refugees. If you know me, you know I’ve worked hard to teach my students about modern day slavery and to look at the world beyond themselves. Now that I am in South Korea, I have found the opportunity to tutor, one on one, North Korean refugees, people who have taken extraordinary risks to escape extreme oppression and make their lives better. An important step in furthering their education is learning English. It’s necessary for university here and for seeing more of the world. Yesterday I got matched with two students who I will start tutoring, twice a month, one on one. Last night I went to a book club at TNKR about a book by Yeonmi Park who was a student with TNKR. https://youtu.be/ufhKWfPSQOw Watch the video for her story. It’s amazing, horrifying and inspiring. TNKR is a small organization getting more and more international recognition for the good work they are doing. They need funds to continue and grow. Please contribute! Share this fundraiser! It’s important!
Why 58.5? March 30 is my half birthday. I know you want to give me a half birthday present!
Again, watch her story and give to this great organization that helps empower these amazing refugees. https://youtu.be/ufhKWfPSQOw
