POST-AWARENESS DAY

                 Our third Awareness Day was a huge success! At the end of the day, the fence was covered with colorful ribbons with hopes and wishes for the liberty in North Korea. Many of the ribbons were written in different languages full of encouragement, love, and compassion all supporting the North Korean people. Not only did we accomplish our goal of spreading awareness to the general student body of UT, we raised over $1000! and we are almost to our goal of rescuing another North Korean refugee which would bring LiNK Texas’s total to 10 refugees rescued! Thank you to everyone who sponsored our event in any way and those who helped out, giving your time. Your efforts were not wasted. Stay tuned for more information about our next social events and fundraising efforts!

LiNK Texas’ Awareness Day is meant to change that. We want to shift the public’s perception of North Korea from the politics to the people. Come out to Gregory Plaza on Tuesday (3/18) to learn about North Korea, hear refugee’s stories, eat a FREE fried Oreo, and become part of the shift in North Korea.
