What is The Care Package 💌 ?
The Care Package is a weekly newsletter that centers the stories and experiences of Asian women in America. It’s written and edited by Karen Mok, Co-Founder of The Cosmos (hi!).
You can become a paid subscriber for $5/month or $50/year. Every paid subscription directly supports The Care Fund, a creative aid fund that distributes micro-grants to Asian women storytelling projects. So far we’ve distributed grants to 6 Asian women to support more diverse stories in our community 🥰

Who’s writing this?
I’m Karen, writer and co-founder of The Cosmos (@jointhecosmos), a community for Asian women to care for themselves, their community, and their world. Our work has been featured in CBS News, The New York Times, The Washington Post, PAPER Mag, Bustle, and more!
I’m interested in writing candidly about identity, and I’m currently writing a coming-of-age novel about an ensemble of Asian Americans in San Francisco :) You can find me on Twitter at @themokstories.
I was born and raised in South Carolina, an experience that motivates me to both create and support more stories from the Asian women community. I identify as a child of immigrants. You can reach me with thoughts, suggestions, and comments at email@example.com. Thank you for being here <3
