let morning shine


"Let Morning Shine! : SEEDS" is a charity event intended to bring awareness of the present situation in North Korea and to practically assist those in need.

The evening will feature a documentary filmed by a national geographic reporter and her camera crew, who were only able to film this by posing as nurses/doctor assistants to a Nepalese eye doctor visiting North Korea to heal 1000+ people of cataracts . There will also be live musical performances of some of the songs from the first-ever cd of music entirely written for the people of North Korea; a cd which was released in February, 2008 and which will be available during the evening. Finally, there will be an art auction with most of the artwork being created for the event by artists from Hong Kong, Singapore, and the United States. Featured artists include students from Parsons School of Design in New York, as well as Eric Lafforgue, a professional, freelance photographer whose work has appeared in numerous publications such as National Geographic, Lonely Planet, the Times, BBC, Reader's Digest, Blue Planet, and CNN Traveller.

Admission is free and is open to everyone.

The money made from the event will be donated to two projects:
1. a project coordinated by LiNK (Liberty in North Korea) called SEEDs. The money will aid North Korean refugee children in the specific areas of food, education, and shelter. The concept of this project, SEEDs, is to "invest in the younger generation" of North Korea, that they might be nurtured, grow up and be able to make a difference to benefit their home country.
2. a non-profit bread factory in North Korea that provides thousands of children in poverty with soybean milk and bread rolls everyday.
