Meet T.K. Li of New York City, NY.
December 2008 Featured Donor – Tung-Kuen Li
“I am so honored being asked to be Featured Donor for the December Aura’s House newsletter. I really don’t know how I deserve this honor.
My friends call me TK. I am a Network Support Analyst with a bank in New York City. I have three sponsored children (Yamiris, 10 years old, from Colombia; Luz Dary, 14 years old, also from Colombia; and Maria Gabriela, 9 years old, from Ecuador) through Children International.
In my spare time, I volunteer in computer tutoring projects throughNew York Cares . I have been a sponsor since January of 2007. Being able to make the lives of my sponsored children easier, and to see the smiles on their faces is the best reward. I also donate to help families featured in Children International’s blog, and to individuals or families who need help through Modestneeds.org. I also make micro-loans to entrepreneurs in developing countries through Kiva.org, so that they can make better lives for themselves and their families.
I discovered Aura’s House through Children International’s website. Aura’s House is such a wonderful website that combines the power of many individuals together to help the needy families. I donate to Aura’s House because I can be sure that the funds will directly benefit the individuals or families who need help, and I see the actual difference made. With the devotion of Kristen Palana, Anastasia Yecke, Mike Epler, Christina Sidoti, Heather LaBonte, and so many dedicated volunteers of Aura’s House, we can make a difference.”
