[PROJECT REPORT] Sikseekers Charity Project for Yoo Ah In’s Birthday “Donation for Children”

Hi Sikseekers in the Sikseekland! Happy 1st October; the Master Sik’s month~^^

Finally, this is our report on Sikseekland Project: Sikseekers Charity Project for Yoo Ah In’s Birthday!!

Since Yoo Ah In always tells his fans that he prefer us to donate for charity rather than buy him the birthday presents, we came with the charity fundraising campaign. For this campaign, Sikseekers/Sikseekland joined force with AINESE (Yoo Ah In official Korean fans club http://ainese.co.kr) and Japan Fans to raise as much money as we can for the charity and send the donation to the children foundation in his name as his surprise birthday present.

After some consideration, Ainese decided to deliver all our donation to The Beautiful Foundation. The Beautiful Foundation “아름다운재단” (http://www.beautifulfund.org/) is a foundation that supports underprivileged children and college students.

As we’ve already known, Yoo Ah In has been a regular donor for the Beautiful Foundation. Yoo Ah In has been donating to the Beautiful Foundation since 2013. In 2013, he quietly donated 77 million won and in 2015 he donated 100 million won to the foundation. In October 2016, Yoo Ah In’s fans followed his step by donating 6 million won in his name to The Beautiful Foundation on his birthday. In December 2016, Yoo Ah In donates Da Vinci Codex Exhibition tickets worth 40 million Won to the Beautiful Foundation as well.

Yoo Ah In also made his charitable donation to The Beautiful Foundation through the “New Kidz Yoo Ah In Charity Fund” account established in the foundation. The fund, started by Yoo Ah In himself back in 2015, goes directly toward a college fund within The Beautiful Foundation. The fund is used to aid Supporting Business for Youth Cultural Activities and tuition fees for university students retiring from the residential care center for adolescents.

Since we were working with other groups, necessary modifications and communications were taking place along the way. While our general idea and the intention of the project did not change, certain aspects of the project had to be modified. In the end, we completed the project nicely!

A total of 61 fans from Germany, Indonesia, Japan, Philippines, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Thailand, UEA, Ukraine, United Kingdom, USA, and Vietnam participated and raised ₩2,548,304 (approx. $2,225) for this campaign. Combined with Ainese fansclub members, we managed to make ₩6,082,814 (approx. $5,312) more in donations for the Beautiful Foundation!

The donation was transferred to the Beautiful Foundation on September 29th, 2017, and the management of the fund was left up to Yoo Ah In. Here’s the certificate of donation from the Beautiful Foundation, tweeted by Ainese:

Translations on Ainese tweet:

“Today, the donation commemorating the birthday of actor Yoo Ah In has been delivered to the Beautiful Foundation. This donation will be used for actor Yoo Ah In’s college student tuition support project. For the past four years Ainese has been doing this donation event. And this year, fans from 10 foreign countries from SikSeekland have joined us.”

 

So, now Yoo Ah In knew that his fans all over the world did the charity campaign as his birthday present, and feels all the love from his Korean and foreign fans~^^ 🙂
