Although the Third Annual Single Moms’ Day is not until May, we are doing an end-of-year fundraiser to get the ball rolling. We have also just gotten fiscal sponsorship, meaning donations from our American friends are now tax-deductible.
This year, May 11 will be on a Saturday, meaning we are going to try to have some big public events, possibly over multiple days if we can raise the money.
Some things we would like to use Single Moms’ Day 3.0 for:
- Invite a guest speaker from Australia, where they are having the apology for forced adoptions
- Showcase the Dandelions group (Korean adoptees’ families of origin)
- Pressure the ROK government to fulfill its responsibilities under international treaty obligations. We are still engaged in a struggle with the government to accept the Universal Periodic Review recommendations from the United Nations
- Artistic performance
If you send a check to our American fiscal sponsor, Give2Asia, they will mail you the receipt you need for your tax returns. You may contribute a gift of any amount and send to:
340 Pine Street, Suite 501
San Francisco, CA 94104
Please make the check out to Give2Asia and write KoRoot/Single Moms’ Day in the memo part of your check. Your gift will benefit KoRoot, TRACK, and KUMFA (Korean Unwed Mothers and Families Association) because we all share the bill for Single Moms’ Day. FYI Give2Asia takes 7% for administrative fees.
Sincere thanks to you!
