March

In Uncategorized on March 4, 2015 at 9:25 pm

Hey guys!

It’s been a while huh? Sorry for not updating! But we have been doing quite a bit during this new semester!

In February, we sold balloons with candy grams to spread the Valentine’s Day love. More importantly, we were able to spread awareness regarding the issues in North Korea and remind people of the oppression going on in North Korea.

For this month, we’re going to be holding a Nomad event again. The nomads are from Liberty in North Korea and they will be coming to our campus to help spread awareness and give us more insight into what is going on in North Korea at this moment, and what we can do to help.

We will keep you updated on the location and time, but this will be held on the 24th of March. The cubes will also be painted for this so keep you eyes open and invite your friends to come too!

Hope to see you all there!

October: LiNK Nomads

In Uncategorized on October 20, 2014 at 8:08 pm

Are you tired of feeling like you’re uninformed about North Korea? Do you want to hear about what’s going on in North Korea? Do you want to know what you can do to help?

Well this is a perfect event for you!

LiNK’s Nomads are coming to UNC October 23, Thursday at 7:30 PM in the Student Union Rm2420

The Nomads from Liberty in North Korea travel around the United States to speak about the North Korean crisis and share what their organization is doing to provide an outlet of hope for the North Korean people. Not only that, they tell us what WE can do to help. Come out and invite all your friends for this cool opportunity to learn about the REAL issue in North Korea!

November/December: Fighting on for LiNK

In Uncategorized on January 12, 2014 at 11:40 pm

This month we got the incredible opportunity of collaborating with some awesome organizations on campus to promote awareness for Liberty in North Korea!

1. Korean BBQ Fundraiser with PaPhi

The generous brothers of PaPhi offered to help LiNK coordinate a Korean bbq fund-raiser and offered all of the proceeds towards our cause of rescuing a refugee! We couldn’t have asked for a better option and the barbeque was extremely successful! We had a greater turn-out than had been expected (after all who can resist Korean barbeque and a good cause like ours?) and we want to thank everybody who showed up! Because of you, one more life can experience the freedom that they deserve!

2. Step into A.S.I.A 

We also collaborated with the Southeast Asia Interest Association (SEAIA), Chinese Undergraduate Student Association (CUSA), and the Hmong Student Association of Carolina for a week of awareness on Asia on our campus! LiNK offered a stimulation of the experience of shopping in a market and going to school in both North Korea and South Korea. We received positive feedback and are so glad that this helped create more awareness in our community!

3. Project for Awesome: Eat Your Kimchi 

Project for Awesome coordinated an amazing competition over our winter break which offered the resources to rescue 12 refugees! Special thanks to Eat Your Kimchi (check them out on YouTube) for helping to promote our cause. On January 14, we found out that LiNK had won the competition and $50,000! All that money will be contributed to rescuing refugees!!! Wow, this is such great news, and really brings us so much hope for the people in North Korea. Here’s the video showing our win! –> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Yml2xJdooA

4. Noteworthy Links 

And for your entertainment, here are some interesting links regarding North Korea and some of their current events

Get pumped for an exciting and event-filled spring semester with LiNK! We have so many exciting things planned for you guys 🙂

2. LiNK Nomad Visit! 

Our LiNK chapter at UNC had the privilege of meeting nomads from the headquarters of LiNK! Dani, Paul, and Judy were such awesome company and we had the chance of introducing them to some good food at Chapel Hill 🙂 More excitingly, we got some more inside info on the #bridgetonorthkorea. We watched the “Danny” screening with our nomads and sparked our passions for the cause of Liberty in North Korea. Can’t wait to see you guys again!
