While various activities are subsiding due to the impact of COVID-19, the Hanyang University class of ‘87 is delivering warmth through gift giving.

On March 14th, a message was posted in the class of '87 Band (an online community) regarding the gift sharing event. The chairman of the alumni association, Han Ki-soo, would be sending presents to his colleagues. Healthy foods will be delivered to applicants who are going through hard times due to COVID-19. They also gave options such as a strawberry jam set, a Jeju hallabong set, and a Jeju natural herb set. The presents are more meaningful in that they are all products that are sold by alumni, and they are intended to help economic growth during the difficult situation.


 


As of the 17th, three days after the notice was posted, the applicants exceeded 500. The announcement received grateful and inspiring comments such as “I think it will get rid of the stuffy and difficult feeling right away,” and “The class of ’87 organization is great.”

 Han Ki-soo, the chairman of the alumni association of class of ’87, who prepared this surprise gift said that “Because of COVID-19, planned alumni events have been reduced or canceled, and private gatherings of alumni intended to change the mood of the situation also have to be refrained from”, and added that “although it is not a fundamental solution, I hope that it will help us overcome the regrets and depression that the alumni can’t see often.”


Meanwhile, the alumni association of the class of ’87, sent masks by post three times to their colleagues who are residing in the Daegu and North Gyeongsang province, by launching a campaign to send masks around mid-February to February 29th. For this to happen, lots of alumni participated in the mission to supply and send masks and have been cited as an example of an active alumni association management using an online community to rapidly gather applicants.
