BENEFITING: NODUTDOL CORPORATION
EVENT DATE: Aug 01, 2013
I am excited to tell you that I will be joining 2013 KEEP-DPRK for a 2-week trip to north Korea in early August. I will be part of the 10th KEEP delegation to north Korea!
"What is KEEP-DPRK"???
It stands for Korea Education & Exposure Program-Democratic People's Republic of Korea (KEEP-DPRK). KEEP-DPRK focuses on reunification effort of the Korean Peninsula through peaceful relations between the U.S. and Korea. This is a program of Nodutdol (non-profit org).
"Why are you going?"
- To learn about the history, struggles and daily lives of the people in their homeland through first-hand experience, since we rarely hear from the people themselves.
- To provide much-needed medical aid to north Koreans. To hand-deliver medical supplies and medicines (antibiotics) to a hospital of our choice.
"What is your fundraising goal?"
Our goal for MEDICAL AID fundraising is $7,500 (with in-kind donations from World Medical Relief, the value of the antibiotics we are bringing will be approximately $13,000). However, among the 12 of us who are going this summer, we, as individuals are aiming to raise $650/person to meet the overall $7,500 goal.
ALSO I have a personal goal of fundraising at least $1500 to support the overal trip cost of $4000 (which includes airfares to China and Pyeongyang and program fees).
"What are you going to do after you come back?"
With your support, I will be much more accountable to our community, committed to doing a public reportback after the trip, to develop our Korean diaspora working on peace, and work on peace and reunification work. Personally, I would like to make a short vlog to share with you all! Stay tuned :D
"How can I help?"
ANY support ($10-100) you can offer or asking your friends to donate!!!
