Pepero Day is 11/11, because that date looks like Pepero sticks. Our goal is to raise $1111 by the end of Pepero Day weekend. If 101 people give $11 each, we can reach our goal and send more than 3000 pairs of socks across the border into North Korea before this winter sets in. Let's make it happen!
Here's what you can do:
- Be a Pepero Pal: Give $11 today!
- Take the Pepero Pledge: Give $11 a month for one year, from Pepero Day to Pepero Day
- Make a Pepero Power Play: TELL 11 FRIENDS. You know 11 people who can give $11 to change lives. Inspire, make a difference, and be a leader on our journey to peace in North Korea!
Every journey has to start somewhere, sometime. We’re starting the journey to peace, freedom, and unity on the Korean Peninsula. Our North Korean brothers and sisters are coming with us. We’re sending them socks to keep their feet warm on the way.
Winters are cold in Korea. People need socks to survive. In South Korea, you can buy a pair of socks for the price of a pack of gum, about 35 cents. That's the price to change a life.
We send balloons across the border carrying thousands of socks. Also a message: “Brothers and sisters: We haven't forgotten about your suffering. Until unification, please stay alive. People around the world love you.”
We invite you to come with us on our journey. It’s a long trip. Bring socks.
