TheHundred: Meet Mi Sun

From Liberty in North Korea, an organization that Christine and I support...

"In the fall of 2009, we dreamt of rescuing 100 refugees out from hiding in the underground.

With the goal of making that dream a reality, we launched a campaign called TheHundred and the first mission finally happened in the early part of 2010.

YOU dreamt with us and by the end of the year, 6 missions were successfully completed bringing 22 refugees to freedom. Mi Sun, a 22 year old North Korean refugee was included on our first mission. We met her in China just a few months prior to her escape and promised that we would help her find freedom.

At times when this goal has seemed unattainable, Mi Sun's story inspired us to keep pushing on. Through your continuous support and encouragement, we were able to launch our 7th mission just a few weeks ago and rescued another five refugees - bringing a total of 27 refugees to freedom through TheHundred Campaign. With donations from our generous supporters, we have secured funding to rescue another 27 refugees as soon as possible.

We hope to finish the campaign this spring by raising another $115,000 to rescue the remaining 46 refugees for TheHundred. But this will only be possible with your support.

With thousands of refugees still in hiding, we have an incredible opportunity to help them escape and provide them with freedom. We ask you to join us in committing $2,500 to rescue one more North Korean refugee from hiding.

On behalf of the refugees we serve, Thank You.
