Dearest Family and Friends,
I’ve been working on a personal project for some time and it is ready to print:
A picture book featuring a Korean-American family celebrating one of their favorite holidays and enjoying the love and fun of that event.
Initially, this book was made as a gift for my nieces and nephews, because there are not many children’s books that reflect what our childhood looked like in our Korean-American cultural context. But by no means is this only for other Koreans. In sharing my story, I hope that any reader could feel like they were invited to my home for an afternoon among friends. At times, it seems as though a lot of content out there has given more fuel for enmity between races, so I feel that any literature that encourages empathy and understanding, especially in children, would be a worthwhile effort.
So in loving my neighbor, I want to share this book with you!
I’ve partnered with my friend David Pat at Renewal and they are going to help me publish my book. We’re hoping to raise $6,000 for this book project and your donation will help us give out free copies and funding to underserved communities.
<<UPDATE December 2020>>
We have reached our fundraising goal! We are still giving wherever we can and are now supporting orphanages in Indonesia with your help and support.
Please feel free to donate online!
