As part of the Asia Society Triennial, the virtual “Eat Chocopie Together” art initiative seeks to further extend love, compassion, and humanity to promote peace on earth. Conceived in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the project offers virtual Chocopies to be shared digitally by anyone, to send to a friend as a warm greeting in this time of social distancing, symbolizing a gesture towards friendship. Furthermore, each virtual share automatically raises funds for The Korean American Community Foundation’s COVID-19 Community Action Fund, a charity set up to aid the Korean American community affected by the pandemic and to support the important work to address growing anti-Asian racism in our community.
By participating in “Eat Chocopie Together,” you are helping to raise funds towards the Korean American Community Foundation’s COVID-19 Community Action Fund supports non-profit partner organizations working at the front line of the pandemic providing essential services to the most vulnerable Korean Americans. With the funds, KACF will also support the important work to address growing anti-Asian racism in our community.
One complete share raises a total of US$2, when:
|One Chocopie is shared with one friend = US$1 raised in sender’s name||
|The shared Chocopie is ‘eaten’ by a recipient = US$1 raised in recipient’s name|
The project comes to an end when the campaign target is reached, or by June 27, 2021. An anonymous donor has already made a generous pledge of the total amount to support the efforts in reaching the goal.
Note: Users do not, at any time, contribute any money of their own. The participation of sharing and eating virtual Chocopies together raises the donation to the charity fund automatically.
