What an amazing journey I have been on with (TNKR) Teach North Korean Refugees these past five months! When I learned about it I was just planning on signing up for the tutoring sessions with the refugees. However, one matching session later Larah and I had our own women’s group – Lending Ears – and an entire plan for fundraisers. Little did we know that we would meet so many wonderful people and how rewarding the fundraising would be. Being part of TNKR gives me such a sense of pride and hope and I’m looking forward to what else I can contribute while I remain in South Korea. With that being said… THANK YOU to EVERYONE who donated, shared, and attending our fundraiser events! I’m please to announce that we have reached our 1 million won goal – that’s roughly 1,150.00$ Canadian! We couldn’t have done any of this without all of the support we get from co-founders Casey Lartigue Jr. and Eunkoo Lee and also without the support of every single person who helped us along our journey!! Much love!!!
