About This Fundraiser

Hi everyone,
I am turning 25 years old this month on Oct 4th and I would like to donate my birthday to a cause that I deeply care about. You can tell what they do by their title already, TNKR(Teach North Korean Refugees English) was one of the turning points of my life outside of darkness. The volunteer teachers showed me a hope for humanity through their love and care for people like myself who had nothing to offer. I cannot name them all, but every one of them showed me that the humanity's hope was never lost when we stand together, help each other and fight for each other.

Please donate any amount you can contribute to this amazing organization that helps my fellow North Korean defectors to find their voice in freedom and continue to speak up against evil Kim regime. We need more survivors to tell their stories in English, so not only we end this tyranny of North Korean regime, but also educate humanity so we will never again let these dictators take our dignity and freedom away.

My goal is to raise $5,000 USD, and please send me messages if you have you any questions about TNKR or how to get involved in making this world a better place.

About Yeonmi Park's fundraiser FSI

When I was in North Korea, I have never seen super hero movies. I never even heard words like Superman, Spiderman or even Wonder Woman. I am always fascinated how people here are somewhat obsessed with super hero movies. I do truly believe that people genuinely want to help others and human nature is compassionate.
However, what people don’t realize is that they don’t need to have a super power like heroes in the movies to help other people. To me, being free and having a voice is a super power that I never thought I could have. In that sense, we are all super heroes and have the ability to help others.
What would you do with your super power? Would you use it to help someone who is less fortunate than yourself?
Today is a World Refugee Day! When I was a refugee, I felt like I was somewhat less of a human than non refugee persons.
Being born into oppression and poverty is nobody’s fault. By some mysterious luck, some people born into freedom and prosperity and some don’t.
So I kindly ask if you want to use your super power today to help North Korean refugees.
Often people think our journey ends when we arrive in South Korea, but it is just the begging for us. There are still mountains of obstacles for us to overcome to survive in freedom and FSI smooths this rough process for us to overcome.

I am deeply grateful for your support for my mission to free North Koreans. Hope you all take care xoxo


2019 Birthday:

A lot of you often have asked me how you can help the situation in North Korea. So this is the chance where you can make that difference. TNKR gives voices to North Korea defectors to share their stories internationally by teaching them English for free. This is really a tip of iceberg of what they are doing. The founders of TNKR and the volunteers that I met showed me an unconditional care and that gave me a confidence that we can free North Koreans if we know what is going on.

I hope we do something positive to show that people are still kind and we still have hope in this world. I am eternally grateful for all your support and please give any little amount you can or just share with your friends. You could become an individual donor to help TNKR become a sustainable organization or donating once is fine too.
