NKHRFF - Do Anything For the People of North Korea (by nkhrfilmfestival)

StartSomeGood News

Kinyei wrapped up Coffee, Cycling, and Community, far surpassing the campaign’s tipping point goal by raising $18,105 from 147 backers! With that, it has become one of the largest amounts raised through StartSomeGood and the largest amount raised by an Australian led campaign to date, so join us in congratulating Kinyei’s team—it’s been a really exciting past couple of weeks for them. Kinyei will use the money raised to train staff to manage its social enterprises, making the projects one hundred percent locally driven and self-sufficient.

The North Korean Human Rights Film Festival (NKHRFF) is a film festival in Toronto, Canada that will raise awareness about the lack of human rights and current humanitarian crisis in North Korea.

With a few hours left in the campaign to launch the film festival, NKHRFF has reached its tipping point, raising $2,545, and is seeking pledges to move the campaign towards its total funding goal.
