Facebook fundraisers are so easy

I was scrolling through the list of Facebook friends having birthdays, recently, today or soon. Out of 100 people, only 1 has set up a Facebook fundraiser.

Of course, no one is obligated to do so. And this was happening before the virus started destroying the world. For those who haven't tried, it is SO EASY. You can do something nice in this world on a day that friends want to honor you. Evil Facebook is doing something special, making it easy for organizations to raise money, but you can scroll through Facebook for the usual ranting about it or other bad things in the world. (non-Facebook users, go here)


Step 1: Look to the left, you will see a list of tempting tabs. Click "Fundraisers" if you are in a country where this is allowed.

STEP 2: Select Nonprofit. Start typing in "TNKR" or "Teach North Korean Refugees."

Step 3: TNKR will pop up as an option! TNKR is a registered 501(c)3, that means you can get a tax-deduction in the USA for donating to TNKR! Just send your name and email to me. If you are in Korea and would like to get a tax deduction in Korea, then donate via our bank account.

Step 4: Either write a short description about TNKR or just go with Facebook's default message. You could also add a photo. You don't have to save the whole world, just raise a bit of money for your favorite organization.

That was from my Laptop computer. Your experience could be a bit different from your mobile device, but it is easy from there too!

Of course I wish that everyone I knew would set up a fundraiser for TNKR. Not realistic, I know, but out of 100 people I know who recently and will soon be celebrating birthdays, wouldn't it be great if just a handful could do so? If TNKR is not your favorite, it is your choice, there are many other organizations that would be delighted to know that others have set up fundraisers for them.

As an added bonus, evil Facebook even highlights your fundraiser as part of the daily list of your friend's birthdays. So you can raise money for a cause and also raise awareness about it. And if it isn't your birthday, you can set up a fundraiser anyway.

The donations are tax-deductible. When you donate to TNKR, send me a message so I can be sure to generate a donation receipt for you (name, email, amount you donated).

If you are not on Facebook, then check our donation and fundraising options here:

2016-11-03 Who is Andrei Lankov?

Disclaimer: NK experts, please don't read this, there will be no rabbits pulled out of a hat. * * * Every couple of months, I meet up with Andrei Lankov to discuss various things. I first met him back in 2011, shortly before he spoke at an event I organized with the Center for Free Enterprise. I have read his articles for years, he has spoken at about four TNKR events over the years. When it comes to analyzing NK, he is one of the leading experts in the field. Last March, I was one of the organizers of the first (and perhaps last) International Volunteers Workshop, we had 227 RSVP in advance. I asked them all as part of the RSVP: "The keynote speaker will be Andrei Lankov. Had you heard of him before hearing about this event?" No: 133 Yes: 94 Even within those 94 "Yes" responses, I am sure there were various levels of awareness--such as some may have seen his name, others may have read some articles, and a few experts may have the Andrei La

Songmi’s first book signing (2022-09-27)

Songmi Han escaped from North Korea in March 2011 and was released into freedom in South Korea in October 2011. For the first decade, she was silent. She was struggling with settling down and was also a survival of several different traumas. After she went through counseling and joined Freedom Speakers International as a Special Assistant in early 2021, she finally began to open up. I suggested that she might want to write a book. that her healing process might also be able to help others. After some discussions, she decided to try, although she recruited me as her co-author (that was NOT part of my suggestion). As we worked on the book, I told her that the would come that she would have a book signing. She didn’t believe it. Eighteen months later, she had her first in-person book signing. I organized a trip to the USA, with the first event being held on her birthday. Below are many of the photos I took of her as she signed books with attendees in Nashville. Finally, after signing many

2014-07-01 Happy Birthday, Joo Yeon Cho!

Can it be true? I have known Joo Yeon Cho for less than 9 months? Incredible! But I guess that's the way it is with Joo Yeon. I'm not surprised to see so many birthday messages coming from all over Korea and the world. She works for a company that could crush me and everyone I know, but she still calls me "Boss."^^ I checked my emails, she first emailed me back on October 14, and I was surprise d to see it was 2013, not 2012 or even earlier. She wanted to join as a volunteer at the Mulmangcho School. I quickly recognized she was a special lady. She didn't know it, but I had already decided that she would help me with a special project I had planned with Praise Ju that I was going to launch two days later. They hit it off, and the project took off! We are collaborating again--she started off as the first Academic Adviser in the Teach North Korean Refugees Project, and she is now our first External Coordinator. As I posted a few days ago, she regularly blows u
