Kimchi Challenge for the Korean Unwed Mothers Families’ Association (KUMFA)/HEATER fundraiser

This is very simple, dear readers.  15 of you folks give $5.00 or more from now until 11:59 pm, Thursday, November 3.  The money goes to the Korean Unwed Mothers Families’ Association (KUMFA)/HEATER fundraiserIn return, the world will witness 5 dudes (two white guys, three Asian guys) consume the following kimchi in one sitting.  The eating will be video taped at Brooke Newmaster’s Korean Heritage House in St. Paul, MN and blasted out into the world afterwards…IF 15 of you folks give $5.00 or more. 

This is a ridiculous amount of kimchi for five guys, and, as the old saying goes, it will hurt on the way down and hurt on the way out…  Thank you Jakyong Kim, Pat Gingles, and the anonymous Korean adoptee who made and donated the kimchi for the cause.  Our stomachs thank you!

So that you know, the money raised from the kimchi challenge will benefit the HEATER facility of the Korean Unwed Mothers Families Association (KUMFA), which advocate for the rights of unwed pregnant women, unwed mothers and their children in Korea. KUMFA’s goal is to enable Korean women to have sufficient resources and support to keep their babies if they choose, and thrive in Korean society, rather than feel compelled to place their children for adoption.  HEATER is KUMFA’s facility that provides care for mothers who keep their children.  Click here for more information about KUMFA, HEATER, and the fundraiser.  And if you’re convinced that watching 5 dudes struggled through a huge amount of kimchi is really good entertainment, send your $5.00(+) via PayPal to or

Let’s do this, people!
