MANILA, Philippines – Being a fangirl is not just about supporting your idol; it’s also about helping people in times of need. This is what fans from different countries of Korean boy band JYJ aimed to show when they responded to a call to help victims of severe flooding in the Philippines, which left 109 people dead and affected 4.1 million people.

JYJ Philippines, the local fan club of boy band, launched and organized the “JYJ Reach: JYJ Philippines Flood Relief Charity Project” to help Filipinos.

“The project’s purpose is to help our brothers and sisters who were affected by the flood in the Philippines,” said JYJ Philippines.

The heavy rains in the Philippines started last August 6 brought about by the southwest monsoon or “habagat.”

As of August 16, the Philippines’ National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said 924,948 families in 36 cities in 17 provinces including the National Capital Region were affected by the flooding.

JYJ, composed of Jaejoong, Yoochun and Junsu, is one of the most popular Korean groups.

When JYJ Philippines called out for people to donate to the worthy project, fans from different countries responded.

As of August 17, the “JYJ Reach: JYJ Philippines Flood Relief Charity Project” has collected P55,198.58.

“The response of the fans to project is overwhelming. We didn’t expect that even the International fans would give their support. But then it’s not surprising anymore because JYJ Families around the world are always supportive of each other’s fan projects,” JYJ Philippines told Bulletin Entertainment.

The donations came from fans in the US, Australia, Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Canada, Turkey, Hong Kong and the Philippines.

“Honestly, we didn’t set any target as far as the total amount of donations is concerned. When we launched the project, we thought, any amount would do just as long as we’re able to help our brothers and sisters in need. The turnout really surprised us because in three days time we were able to collect more or less P27,000. And the tentative total we have now is PhP 55,000. So, it was beyond our expectation,” JYJ Philippines added.

In the first phase of JYJ Reach, JYJ Philippines brought ready-to-eat food and medicine. Last August 12, the admins of JYJ Philippines went to the Philippine Red Cross to donate the goods.

Next week, JYJ Philippines will donate to ABS-CBN Sagip Kapamilya and World Vision for the second phase of JYJ Reach.

“We are inspired by our idols Jaejoong, Yoochun and Junsu and we will continue to do charity projects in the future,” JYJ Philippines said.

[INFO-MINI PROJECT] Support The Mango Tree Project And Leave A Message For JYJ!


Let us all go back seven years and bask in the glory that is TVXQ singing Christmas songs~ 

Herroooooooo 🙂

I haven’t posted here in a while and it makes me feel kinda guilty .__.
But I’ll probably start posting again in the next week so \o/

Anywho, the reason I’m making this post is because t’is the season of giving!
Yes ladies and gentlemen, Christmas is just around the corner (okay… more like 25 days away) and the spirit of sharing has returned.

As you all know, JYJ, along with Yoohwan and Ji Hyo, are participating in World Vision’s Mango Tree Project.

It aims to plant 20,000 mango trees in Sudan as a sustainable source of income for those who have been afflicted by the internal conflict. Each tree costs 10,000 KRW to plant, which means JYJ are aiming to collect 200 million KRW. Personally, I think this is an absolutely spectacular charity project, which is why I’ve set up this mini project.

I’m sure some of you have visited the C-JeS mini-homepage thing for the Mango Tree Project, clicked on the little link that said “click here” and…. ended up on the Korean site of World Vision (as seen here)… Awkward sauce yo .__.

You need a Korean registration number to make the donation, which is only given to Korean citizens (more awkward…). This was why my fellow ninja master Rara had to ask me if I could help her out and I said, ‘Hey, why not?’ 🙂

So, in light of it being the happiest season of the year, I’ll be using my registration number to make a collective donation from anyone who would like to join in.

Here’s some basic info for the mini-project:

Date: December 1st ~ December 10th 11:59pm KST
Amount: As much or as little as you would like
Paypal account: TVXQmelodies@gmail.com

On the 5th, 8th and 11th (after all donations have been collected) I’ll post a spreadsheet with first names, amount donated and ‘message received’ (for the message to JYJ)

All other costs that come from transferring the money from my Paypal account to my actual bank account will be paid for by me, but whatever costs may come from donating to my Paypal account must to paid for by you guys (I don’t even know if there are any costs for this D:) and I’ll be contributing an extra 30,000 KRW (one tree per member :))

After your donation has been made, send me an e-mail to TVXQmelodies@gmail.com with the following information

Name:
Country:
Amount donated:
Message to JYJ: (Maximum 5 lines guys. I know you all have a lot to say, but I can’t be translating paragraphs .__.)

On the day the donation is made, I’ll post a confirmation screencap of the donation, as well as the money withdrawn from my bank account as well as the e-mail that I’ll be sending to both C-JeS and World Vision.

So whether you’re a JYJ fan, TVXQ fan or someone who just wants to help out with a great cause, join in and spread the holiday cheer!

Mucho loves,
Jee
