About This Fundraiser
Hello my generous Kiwi friends, I am a volunteer at TNKR and would love all of you to support this great organisation.
TNKR is a non-profit organisation based in South Korea dedicated to providing free one-on-one English tutoring to North Korean refugees.
North Koreans living in South Korea consider English to be a necessity whilst going about their day-to-day life; whether it be in the workplace, the classroom or social activities. They would love to better their lives and education, help the refugee community, and communicate with the world. But they can only do so with your generosity and help!
A donation of any amount would be much appreciated. Donations will go towards facilitating safe study spaces to learn English with their tutors :)
An American who has been following TNKR since 2014 made a $5,000 donation to TNKR last night (October 29).
There's one "catch": The money is restricted and is to be held in a separate account until we match it by raising $5,000.
The reason? He wanted to provide all donors with 100% assurance in advance that their funds would be matched, and released the moment it hits $5,000, with zero delay.
The deadline? He suggests it would be better for us to take the challenge of raising this in one month.
Why is he doing this? Here are a few of the things he said when we talked.
He is inspired by:
* TNKR's staff keeping the focus on empowering North Korean refugees and building an organization from nothing.
* North Korean refugees studying so hard to improve themselves, and those who are willing to share their stories.
* Volunteers giving so much of their time as tutors and mentors.
