Sending Socks to North Korea

The idea of sending socks to a far away land via balloon is a feat. The balloons look rudimentary and folks have sent food as well to North Korea. Will they ever hear from the recipients? Will the recipients get in trouble? The messages aren’t political, and hopefully North Koreans really need socks. Yet the great piece of news? A pair of socks can be traded for 22 pounds of corn!
