Me & Korea could use your support!
Me & Korea is a public charity that fosters cultural unity by providing Korean adoptees and their families several opportunities to learn about Korean history and culture through a variety of programs.
Since 2013, the Mosaic Tours and Mosaic Hapa Tours have provided adult adoptees from Korea a unique opportunity to reconnect with the country of their birth by providing cultural activities and a personal search into their own family heritage and background. For many, it is their first opportunity to explore and discover Korea, and to learn more about the stories of who they were before they were adopted.
More recently, Me & Korea has expanded our programming to reach younger Korean adoptees and their families with the School for Korean Adoptees and Families (SKAF), which offers weekend classes taught by Me & Korea volunteers in the San Francisco Bay area. These classes are an opportunity for children adopted from Korea to immerse themselves and their families in Korean culture, history, customs, food, and language. Additionally, the Wings Program was started in 2016 to provide gifts and care packages to children ages newborn to 19 years old living at Angels’ Haven Orphanage in Korea. The Wings Program expanded recently to provide education grants to students to help them improve their lives into adulthood. We started this important program with the goal of consistently providing gifts of love to these children who may not otherwise have a chance to celebrate holidays/birthdays in the way that many of us take for granted.
Later this year, Me & Korea anticipates hosting a conference to explore the history of adoption and how the economic situation and development throughout the country in post-war South Korea catalyzed the adoption wave throughout the 1970s and 1980s.
To continue these important programs, please consider donating $10 and asking ten of your family and friends (or more!) to show their support by donating $10, too. Your $10 donation can turn into $110 for Me & Korea’s programs with the help of your family and friends. Any amount that you are able to give goes directly to support services and programs for Korean adoptees, including the Mosaic Tours and Mosaic Hapa Tours to Korea, SKAF (School for Korean Adoptees and Families), and the Wings Program.
We thank you in advance for your kind and generous contribution and look forward to your continued support. Me & Korea, Inc. is recognized by the IRS as a Section 501(c)(3) public charity. Donations to Me & Korea are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
