To further support the cause, LG will be conducting a public awareness drive to request and urge people to come forward, show support for the cause and contribute to the Armed Forces Flag Day Fund. LG Electronics will also run a TV, radio and digital campaign between January 20 and January 31, 2022, to further amplify communication across the masses for the initiative.
