JEONGMIN'S 20TH BIRTHDAY PROJECT 2014
I'm Kelly and I'm one of the Moderators here. Sorry for the delay on the report for JeongMin's Birthday Project this year, but here's the final report!
So... we just tackled the BoyFriend Christmas Project (which was really major, and ended successfully) so I thought that I finally would have some time to rest... Wrong. I was so-oh-totally-wrong! JeongMin's birthday was coming up in a few weeks and I couldn't just let that go to waste. Especially for all that he's done these past few years for me and other Bestfriends as well. (I'm talking about those body gags -***side eyeing you, Jeongminnie...)
JeongMin was finally turning 20! Oh god, what a milestone. I wanted to do something special for him, but I really wasn't sure what. JeongMin has always managed to make me smile, so I wanted to give something back to him too. I wanted to make it worthwhile, but I wasn't sure if clothes/jewelry were the right thing to get (do u get my drift LOLOLOL)
In the end, I decided on donating to a charity with Jeongmin's name. I posted about it a only a few weeks away from his birthday, so the project was quick and small.
I first found out about Camfed when I heard my peers talking about it in UNICEF. I searched it up and I learned it was an organization that helped send girls to school in Africa. I thought to myself, if Jeongmin already makes so many BestFriends smile, we should help and make others smile as well. So it was decided that we would accept quick donations to pool together a small fund for Camfed.
In the end, we managed to raise $75 USD. It wasn't much, but it was still money that could help many girls receive an education. We donated in JeongMin's name and sent an e-card to Starship.
I think that the most important part of this project, was not just sending birthday wishes to Jeongmin, but also to send love to others as well. It might have not been as spectacular as other projects, but when has doing good ever been a bad thing?
Also, thanks to everyone that helped out on this project and may we celebrate many more birthdays with JeongMin!
