Get Off Your Assian and Do Something

January 17th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Actually, neither of the following requires you or me to get off our lazy A’s, but they do need our help and attention:

1) Becky’s Fund

Ever wonder what Becky Lee of Survivor: Cook Islands is up to these days? Since November 2006, Becky has helmed, a non-profit that raises awareness and teaches prevention of domestic violence, as well as advocates for victims.

Becky and her Cook Islands BFF, Yul Kwon, have reunited for an online fundraiser via Facebook. If they raise the most amount of money by 3 pm tomorrow, Facebook will donate $50,000 to the cause. You can donate as little as $5. I already ponied up today because I want them to get the 50 large, and I don’t want to get the stinkeye from Becks, who’s got the most intense Asian game face this side of Seau.

2) Friends of Mike Cho

On December 31st, 25 year-old, UCLA alum Michael Sungman Cho was shot outside of the liquor store in La Habra by Orange County police responding to a vandalism call. The popo contend that they fired on Cho because he had threatened an officer with a tire iron. But Cho’s friends and family believe, after seeing a liquor store surveillance tape that captures part of the confrontation, that the former art student was walking away from the police when he was shot. In a story published by The Daily Bruin, there’s a general consensus among people who knew the guy that this story doesn’t add up and the police may have used excessive force.

Orange County Korean-American groups are calling for a federal investigation of this case. To support this, email Richard Bertsch of Orange County Korean American Coalition at
