We had an overwhelming response during SXSW from supporters all over the world. Together we were able to give 551 USB flash drives to Flash Drives for Freedom, which are on their way to North Korea right this moment. Follow us on social media in order to contribute next time!
It has been a year since we partnered with Flash Drives for Freedom and we have collected thousands of drives, but we still need more. So this year for SXSW we are taking to social and asking you guys to help us! Help us fight North Korea by Tweeting @usbmemorydirect with the hashtag #FlashDrivesForFreedom and we will donate a drive on your behalf.
In a society whose government censors every aspect of their daily lives, North Koreans rely solely on outsiders who take huge risks to provide them with films, books, and digital tools for discovery. Here's what we did to help.
