And That's A Wrap!

That's it!  Dongdaewon is over for another year.  Thanks once again for your incredible support.
Here is a message from this year's Dongdaewon chair, Jo Thies:
What an honor it has been to work with so many caring, talented and generous individuals here at Seoul Foreign School and the greater community.  Our "official" efforts to help raise funds for Eugene Bell Foundation and the patients who suffer from Multiple Drug Resistant Tuberculosis has come to a close.  Most of the money raised has been collected, but funds are still trickling in as Silent Auction items are being delivered, and that envelope that was misplaced on a messy desk is turned in.  At this moment, our community has raised 49 Million Korean Won, inching closer to 50 Million.  These funds are used to purchase much needed medicine and medicine only. 
I would like to thank students, parents and staff for all their efforts in helping save lives.  It is overwhelming, all that is needed to reach the mark of 50 Million.  It takes a lot of song and dance, candy bars, t-shirts, kids in swim suits, pizza, carnival games, and administrative approval.  My prayer is that with all the smiles and love and laughter that was had here, will travel with the cranes to the patients that receive the gift of health. 
On behalf of the Tuberculosis Patients in Dongdaewon,
Thank you 
Jo Thies 
Dongdaewon Chair 

As we go to post, the Eugene Bell Team has just arrived in North Korea to deliver medicine and checkup on the patients.  Keep your thoughts and prayers with them ...

Until next year ...

Peace to you all.
