If TNKR were an independent organization, then we wouldn’t have to deal with a lot of unnecessary paperwork.
 
Well, I’m not the one to complain. TNKR co-founder Eunkoo Lee is the one processing the paperwork for grants TNKR has received. She is holding the paperwork that we must report to one of the organizations that gave TNKR a grant earlier this year.
 
When people tell me their latest idea for TNKR, I often wonder, and sometimes ask, “Who is supposed to do that extra work?” That question doesn’t get answered, but it turns out that it is Eunkoo Lee who must be the de facto External Accountability Officer.
 
Here is Eunkoo’s fundraiser, “TNKR is my new life.”

 
Support TNKR so one day we can have enough money in the bank 1) to hire an External Accountability Officer so Eunkoo can spend more time focus on refugees or 2) financially independent enough that we can focus on our work, and less time on reporting to external organizations.
 
I think it was Margaret Thatcher who said something like:
 
* If you want an opinion, ask a man.
* If you want something done, ask a woman.
 
Was she talking about TNKR?
TNKR co-founder Eunkoo Lee handles the paperwork at TNKR.
 
My role? Sign the paperwork!
 
Some of our tutors get bothered with having to make reports after classes and the ones who get costs covered for study sessions at TOZ might also be a bit bothered with having to fill out an attendance sheet.
 
Well, Eunkoo gets to handle ALL of that paperwork, plus all of the reporting requirements that come along with receiving two grants. After she tracks down everything dealing with our reporting requirements, I waltz in, take the pen that Eunkoo hands me, and sign my name.
 
Yes, that is Paperwork Teamwork at TNKR.
