In order to commemorate the 59th Birthday of Taekwon-Do, the men in charge over at ITF HQ Korea created the “Give Back” project that aims to support Taekwon-Do practitioners around the world who are in need.
This is designed to be an ongoing project that provides Taekwon-Do uniforms to underprivileged practitioners worldwide. Even if you’re reading this and are not a martial artist (which would be kinda wierd) you can still help!
You can make direct donations or you can purchase items from their site and (of course) all the money made goes back to getting uniforms to those who need them. You can purchase a traditional Korean Hanbok. Don’t know what one is, it’s a traditional Korean costume that reflects Korean tradition, history and culture.
They are also selling the popular Black Belt Project DVD’s featuring one of Taekwon-Do greatest competitors, Jaroslaw Suska.
You can get all the information you need on how to donate, how to purchase items and how you can help spread the word about the TKD GIVE BACK PROJECT by clicking the link at the bottom of the article.
I could go on and on about this but they have an incredible website that can answer all your questions and would do a much better job!
