  1. UNICEF is a fantastic organization. I’ve meet several representatives and some of the programs they have highlighted are truly outstanding. Definitely recommend donating some money.

  2. Also, Seong is incensed that S. Korea is listed on Reporters Sans Frontières as a potential internet enemy, or “under surveillance.”

  3. Agreed, UNICEF has done some great things for kids, lets keep it going…

  4. Amazing blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring
    writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost
    on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Many thanks!
