Awwww, Dara you have one of the biggest hearts I know! <3 We love and appreciate this! ^^
2NE1 Sandara Park, Fundraising for Philippines, her Second Home
Hello my name is Sandara Park from 2NE1.
As many of you already know, my brother Thunder and I spent many years in the Philippines. The Philippines, a country we consider our second home, are in much need of your help. In response to the current desperate situation, Thunder and I, together with WEGENERATION and the charity organization World Share decided to launch an emergency aid campaign for the Philippines. Haiyan, a super typhoon that hit the eastern region of the Philippines on November 7th left tremendous damages and a shocking number of casualties. It is reported that the typhoon left over 10,000 people dead, with the south-central region having fallen into a great chaos.
To make the situation worse, as the monsoon season approaches, there is a great fear of an outbreak of diseases caused by humidity, wrecked houses, and uncovered corpses.
Please help out the people of the Philippines by supporting this campaign! By draw, WEGENERATION will be giving out some of the treasured items of Sandara and Thunder to the people who donate.
We cannot do it “alone”, but we can do it “together”!
Thank you for your support!!

All contributions sent to WeLoveDara/OhDara’s Paypal account will be accumulated then sent to OhMyGoddess. Since it’s only open to Korea, OhMyGoddess will then make the donation in behalf of everyone.
For those interested in donating, please don’t forget to make a screencap after your transaction has been made for documentation purposes.
Thank you and I hope that we will unite together to make this a successful campaign, not only in support of Dara and Thunder, but more importantly, to help out to the people in need.

Dara and Thunder’s WeGeneration Fundraising campaign for the Philippines, which was recently devastated by the Super Typhoon Haiyan (Philippines local name “Yolanda”). We all know that the Park family once called the Philippines “home.” And I am happy and touched that they have the country in mind and are doing this campaign for all the Filipinos affected. T_T
The fundraising period is from November 12 – December 24. I think Park Siblings want to be able to give their gift to the Filipinos before the New Year or around that time. They’re aiming for 5,000,000 (around $4,600) for the fundraising campaign.
WEGENERATION is unique among the social fundraising platforms because a big part of their fundraising is the involvement of celebrities and that donors have a chance to meet/greet the celebrity sponsoring a campaign. The celebrities that sponsor a campaign takes an active part in promoting it and also in giving to the campaign itself. YG Family’s Sean is part of WEGENERATION (for a children’s hospital) and he’s sponsoring a dinner party after the end of his fundraising. Other examples are Lee So-Eun having dinner with a donor and Clara (for breast cancer patients) having a yacht dinner with a donor as well. Idol group Block B sponsored a campaign for a high school student named Ji Hye (for her studies) and will give autographed albums.
Dara and Thunder are going to pick 10 donors (5 each), selected in random, and will be giving them special items after the end of the fundraising campaign. In the words of WEGENERATION, “Celebrities are important and influential voices in society.” The fact that Sean is also part of WEGENERATION, might have also influenced Dara to pick this one up too… ^^ I am sure that she did her research before she decided with WeGeneration. And I think it’s a great incentive (not that you need one in order to donate, but still it IS a good incentive in whichever way we think about it) that fans and donors can meet the celebrity sponsors, and it’s a great way for them to show their appreciation for joining in on their respective fundraising campaign as well. ^^
I think that this is a really great move for them. WeGen knows the power of celebrities and harnessed that into a movement with a cause.
As of now, we don’t know if people outside Korea can donate. People have been asking if they can donate, but they aren’t in Korea. T_T However, maybe we can donate for the Philippines’ typhoon victims through the Park siblings’ WeGeneration campaign via OhMyGoddess. We will be discussing this, and will update as soon as we can. Is anyone interested in donating?
Check out more after the cut!
LMAO at the beginning, Ryan said that he thought there was a huge commotion outside, then he realized that it was because of Dara and that people wanted to take pictures with her and told him to move aside. XDDD Then he said, “If you say ‘Sandara Park’ that’s the most beautiful ‘Park’ in the entire Philippines. Rizal Park, Luneta Park.. Sandara Park!” Haha! ^^
Then he asked what Dara missed in the Philippines, and she said, “I miss all my friends. All the ‘Kapamilya’ artists are my friends.” Then Ryan asked, what about the ‘Kapuso’ artists of GMA, and she said they were friends too. ^^ And Dara said, “I also miss sinigang!” then he said that if she wanted to eat sinigang, then she should go to the Philippines and they’ll choose the best and most delicious sinigang, then she’ll have to pay for it. Kekekeke! Dara also said that ‘krung-krung’ meant “cute, unique, and crazy” when Ryan asked about it. ^^ Then they sang a bit of Dara’s hit single in the Philippines, “In or Out” then proceeded to eat because the director said that Dara looked hungry already. ^^

Dara is so sweet! Taking some time to greet her friend Ryan Bang who is also Korean, but very famous in Philippines. ^^
“How are you? Me? I’m doing great and I would like to greet you a happy birthday! Woooo~ You know, when I first met you, I thought you were “krung-krung”, but you turned out to be really nice *laughs* So you’re definitely IN! And this is my birthday wish for you: I wish you will always be happy and I hope there will be a show where we can work together! That will be fun, right? Oh, anyways, I need to go now ‘cause I’m kinda busy. Take care always! Annyeong!”
