Giving is Winning: Liberty in North Korea Fundraiser

So I know you are all just itching to find out how to win the awesome gifts featured in my previous post. And now I'm here to tell you how.

In the spirit of the upcoming holidays, I have decided to change things up a bit and challenge all of you to participate in a fundraising campaign I've started with LiNK, or Liberty in North Korea. After all, 'tis the season for giving.

And while many people around the world need our help, North Korean refugees are a noteworthy group. Lacking basic human rights and needs, thousands of citizens attempt to flee the country each year only to be captured and killed, tortured or sent to labor camps. Those that do manage to escape are often captured by Chinese nationals, and are exploited, abused, or sold into the sex trade along the 3,000-mile journey to a safer country.

Superhero Spotting: Where and When to See the Avengers in Seoul

If you haven't heard yet, Ironman, Captain America and The Hulk are headed to Seoul, South Korea. Contrary to what you might think, their visit has less to do with battling trigger-happy Kim Jeong-un and more to do with their filming "Avengers: Age of Ultron," the sequel to the 2012 Hollywood blockbuster.  It's rumored that the city will be featured for about fifteen minutes in the film and was chosen for its futuristic architecture and beautiful cityscapes.

Camping and Jams at the Rainbow Music Festival

Nami Island is, without a doubt, one of my all-time favorite Korean attractions.  Sure, it's touristy, but with good reason.  The island's stunning scenery and artistic atmosphere make it an ideal destination for nature lovers and design enthusiasts alike.  Because Namiseom is a bit of a journey from Seoul, I'm not able to get out there as often as I'd like; so, when the Korea Tourism Organization offered me tickets to the island's annual music and camping festival, I jumped at the opportunity and figured it was the perfect excuse for making the two hour trip out to Chuncheon.

The Rainbow Island Music and Camping Festival was started in 2011 and past lineups have included international headliners like Jason Mraz, Christina Perri, and KT Tunstall.  In just two short years, the festival has gained a reputation for being one of the country's best outdoor celebrations of music.  One-day and three-day tickets are available for purchase each year.
In addition to promises of amazing music, the festival is one of the only weekends of the year when camping is allowed, as to preserve the island's ecosystem.  Festival-goers holding three-day tickets can opt to reserve camping spots, either by renting the festival's tents (which include sleeping bags, lanterns, and mats) or bring their own tents.  Both options include access to a number of showers.
