Created March 27, 2018
Sarah's story went viral after a customer noticed how hard Sarah was working all by herself. This fund will go directly towards Sarah and her business. Whether it be hiring some help to keep up with all this extra business, or buying materials or inventory needed to keep pace. You can donate to her story and her future even if you never get a chance to eat her delicious food.

Sarah and her husband have owned Teriyaki Plus for 10 years. 5 years ago her husband passed away from a 2 year battle with liver cancer. Since they had no children and no additional family, Sarah has been running this place solo. She has had to let go all of her staff as she can't afford to pay them. Everyone who goes there notices the ethic and passion behind her work. If you can help, please do!

Thank you all so much for your donations! We are now halting the campaign, if you choose to continue to help Sarah you can do so by visiting her at the Ballinger Teriyaki Plus. Thank you to everyone involved who was touched by Sarah's story and to the community who came to her aid ❤️❤️❤️

Sarah is receiving the funds as they come in, and I have decided to retire the fund at the end of May. If you'd like to share this campaign between now and then, please do! Otherwise, you can continue to support Sarah's business by visiting her store :)

Thank you to everyone who has supported this campaign! We nearly tripled the original goal. Sarah was hit with some repairs needed at the shop, and could confidently tend to them because of your generosity.

Don't forget to get your Teriyaki fill and visit Teriyaki Plus!

Many thanks to Alice Currah, who has been integral in assisting with translation and communication with Sarah in regards to receiving these funds.

Because Sarah's legal name is different than the name she uses with customers (as is common with Korean business owners), GoFundMe is requiring I post that information here in order for her funds to be lifted from their hold.

Thank you to everyone who has assisted this week in raising such an amazing amount for Jung Mi Kim (aka Sarah Kim) to staff and supply her business as she see fit to keep up with demand.

I imagine she went to work last Monday feeling the weight of running a business solo, and this Monday she is greatly benefitting from the generosity of strangers, community and survivors.

I hope many of you continue to patron her business for many years :)
