[NEWS] 120622 JYJ & fans donate nearly 90 tons of rice to charity

In a warm gesture to help the community, the young men of JYJ were able to donate nearly 90 tons of rice to the Korean non-profit organization Dreame with the help of fans around the globe.

On June 22nd, the organization announced that Jaejoong, Yoochun & Junsu had donated 23 tons of rice, which had been distributed to six organizations across the country earlier in the week at the request of JYJ’s agency, C-JeS Entertaiment.

According to a Dreame representative, domestic and foreign fans of JYJ sent roughly 64 tons of rice wreathes to support the musical trio’s cause. 49 tons of the rice were directly delivered to those in need, while 19 tons were saved in the organization’s inventory for future distribution.

Fans of JYJ sent rice-wreathes to various events, including JYJ’s showcases, concerts, fanmeets, Junsu’s musicals (‘Tears of Heaven’, ‘Mozart’, ‘Elizabeath’), Yoochun’s drama filming events (‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’, ‘Miss Ripley’, ‘Rooftop Prince’), and Jaejoong’s drama filming events (‘Protect the Boss’, ‘Dr Jin’). Furthermore, fans also donated wreathes at the funeral for Yoochun’s father back in March as a sign of condolences.

Some of the places that received donations included the St Paul and Anne House, the council of Yangpyeonggun (which then delivered the rice to 500 homes), an office for the Community Chest of Korea in Busan, the Sancta Familia House in Gapyeong, and a center that helped children who attended school without lunch meals.

It’s certainly admirable and inspiring to see idols and fans banding together to do so much good to help the community, especially knowing that this isn’t the first time that JYJ & its legion of fans have donated to charities.
