About This Fundraiser
Teach North Korean Refugees (TNKR) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of North Korean refugees by offering them free English education. I started tutoring with TNKR in March 2016 as a track 1 tutor. I worked with several refugees and helped them improve their basic English skills. Now I am joining TNKR again with a different purpose. I will be volunteering as a track 2 speech coach preparing North Koreans to tell their stories.
Since I have started volunteering with TNKR I have seen them evolve greatly and hope that they will be able to continue their mission. As a non-profit, they need your help to keep up their good work. Please consider donating to TNKR. Any amount helps.
If you donate at least $10 USD (10,000 KRW), send me an e-mail at email@example.com with your mailing address. I will send you a “thank-you” postcard from Korea! After the first 10 people donate, I will choose one lucky winner to receive a copy of Yeonmi Park’s book, “In order to Live.” Make a donation to improve the lives of North Korean Refugees today!
September 5th!!! It is the birthday of TNKR Co-founder Casey Lartigue Jr!!
9월 5일은 TNKR의 공동대표, 케이시 대표님의 생일 입니다!!
Mr. Casey is an American now living and working in South Korea. Instead of working as a researcher or commentator in the USA, he has been working directly with North Korean refugees for 7 years. Even though he isn't Korean, he established TNKR in 2013 along with Eunkoo Lee. Behind-the-scenes, he counsels, mentors and sponsors North Korean refugees.
TNKR 케이시 대표님은 한국에서 거주하며 일하고 계시는 미국인 대표 입니다. 미국에서 충분한 월급을 받을 수 있는
연구자 혹은 애널리스트의 삶보다는 한국에서 탈북민들의 영어공부를 돕는 삶을 살고 있습니다. 그리고
2013년 이은구 대표님과 함께 TNKR을 세우는 등 7여년간 탈북민을 위해서 일하고 있습니다.
외국인임에도 불구하고, 탈북민들의 교육, 자유를 위해 끊임없는 열정을 가지고 있으며, 때로는 탈북민들의 상담자로, 멘토로 혹은 후원자로 함께하고 있습니다.
We asked Mr. Casey how we could celebrate his birthday this year.
We aren't surprised when he said: "A fundraiser for TNKR. All
gifts for me, except expensive cars, can be donated to
올해 케이시 대표님께 어떻게 생일을 축하하면 좋을지 여쭤봤습니다. 너무나 당연하다는듯이, 생일축하는 TNKR을 위한 후원모금으로 하자고 이야기하였습니다.
Together, let's make a great fundraiser for TNKR, to honor Mr.
Casey's great work. No contribution to this goal is too small,
and we appreciate any help in supporting TNKR to continue working
with North Korean Refugees.
케이시 대표님의 생일을 함께 축하하고자 하는 모든 분들은 TNKR의 모금활동에 참여해주세요! 모금된 후원금은 앞으로 TNKR 발전을 위해 쓰일 것 입니다.
