We as a community have the opportunity to make a difference in the life of JAE KIM, a 2013 graduate of Issaquah High - She graduated this June to the rousing and emotional applause of her classmates at Safeco Field.
Jae was born in Korea with cerebral palsy. She cannot speak or walk, and has only limited use of her right hand. Jae’s parents moved here from Korea because the education system in Korea could not provide her an education due to her disabilities.
We have been fortunate enough to align with Bridge Disability Ministries, a nonprofit, 501c3 organization who serves individuals with disabilities. Since our mission aligns with its mission, Bridge is helping us to set up a fund for Jae in order for your donations to be tax deductible and eligible for company matching.
We thank you for considering to help Jae fulfill her highest potential by giving her wheels to get around. In addition to giving her the opportunity to get to school, you will also be helping her have a more normal life that all of us and our kids enjoy.
Please contact anyone of us to receive more information and ways you can donate:
