With the recent death of the oppressive Kim Jong-il, the world ought to be reminded that there is no country on this planet with less freedom than North Korea. Although we may (rightfully) make fun of the deceased dictator for his bizarre claims and behavior and laugh at his puppet like character, let’s not be ignorant to what the people of his country face. Below is a letter that will give you more insight into this world without any form of freedom. Read it through and support my noble friend as she travels as a voice on behalf of the voiceless.
LiNK is a non-profit and all of the interns are volunteers, so I will not be getting paid. This is why I am writing to you: to ask for your help in making this trip a possibility. LiNK asks that all Nomads raise a $1,000 stipend for the tour. This is direct support that will cover the cost of food and incidental living expenses during the period of participation in this unpaid internship that would otherwise be taken away from the LiNK General Fund. I know money is tight for everyone right now, but every little bit helps. $5 or $10 makes a difference. Since the moment I learned about what was going on in N. Korea I have been filled with a passion for the people of North Korea. I have what it takes to be a nomad and make a difference in this very special way and would hate for finances to be the only obstacle. If you are unable to help monetarily, that is okay—just keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I travel around the country. If you would like to donate, please make your check payable to LiNK and send it to:
1751 Torrance Blvd, Suite L
Torrance, CA 90501
Please be sure to write my full name on the memo line so they can deposit it into my account.
