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.

GLOW PaRty at Blue Monkey KSU

Blue Monkey Bar is having a GLoW Party!!! Grab some highlighters, dress to GLOW and come party in the blacklights with us! It will be a fundraiser event with proceeds going to Busan Volunteer to help them raise money for two local orphanages this Christmas season. What can be better than partying for a good cause??

Molotov Vibrations - or - another Hongdae fundraiser / concert

When good intentions meet good bands, a couple things happen. First, some money and goodwill are raised. Second, more than a few people get together to enjoy the celebrations, possibly mingling with those trying to do some good. While the party went fine, there were a few areas that could be improved for next time.

10,000 won earned you a stamp on the hand and a bottle of Smirnoff Ice, while raffle tickets were available for a number of prizes. When asked, however, neither volunteer could say when the drawing would be...

Before long, Rubber Duckie came up to play as the first act:

Destination: RAK (Raising Awareness in Korea) / World Bellydancing Day 2010

One of the first acts we saw - Raks Azhaar, an amateur belly-dancing performing team.

Haiti fundraisers

Although I'm not the most philanthropic guy in the world, I will take the time to spotlight some fundraising events - especially if they sound like fun events I'd go to anyway. The first three letters of 'fundraiser' are, well, 'fun'. See the Rubber Seoul event last fall as one noble example of fundraising and lots of fun.
