What heart-warming news!
It has been belatedly reported that Super Junior member Siwon’s fancafe donated to UNICEF in honor of his birthday, which was on April 7. The fancafe called, “THESIWONEST,” decided this year to celebrate their favorite singer’s birthday by doing something special. The fancafe collected donations from fans from fourteen countries, which included, among many, Indonesia, Iran, Bolivia, Mexico, and Chile.
This isn’t the first time that “THESIWONEST” donated to a good cause. They quietly gave to the same charity that Siwon personally donated to last year. This year’s project was the first official project for the fancafe, however, in order to increase the scope of their donation.
Siwon and the fancafe’s special relationship with UNICEF started when Siwon was named a UNICEF envoy in July 2010.
Through “THESIWONEST” donation, forty children will be able to receive eighteen sets of school supplies and one manual drinking water pump. These supplies will be delivered to needy locations by UNICEF.
The fancafe personally delivered the plaque they received from UNICEF to Siwon on his birthday. At the thoughtful gift, Siwon exclaimed, “I’m so thankful. I can’t express it in words. You guys worked so hard.”
