WELOVEDARA/OHDARA’S GIFTS FOR DARA AND 2NE1
We gave a basket full of Dara’s favorite dried mangoes, dried assorted fruits, inipit and choo choo pies from the Philippines. Thanks to Mama Wowa, we were also able to give Jo Malone Perfumes and Body Creams, Patchi Chocolates, Vitamins and Champagne.

Looking back at the year that was… Or at least the first half of the year that was.. ^_^ When I was making this report, I was amazed at how many things we Dara fans should be thankful for. Even before 2NE1 promoted during the second half of the year, Dara had already been doing so many things that slaked our thirst for her. Here’s a summary of all the Dara moments for January-June 2013:
DARA BASKS IN HER VERSATILITY THROUGH ENDORSEMENTS
DIFFERENT LOOKS FOR CLIO
Dara became Clio’s new endorser after the end of her contract with Etude on December 2012. It didn’t take too long before our sadness over the end of that partnership turned into joy when we learned of Dara’s new endorsement for a more mature make-up line! Taking over the endorsement reigns from her idol, no other than Lee Hyori, Dara made a spectacular transformation for Clio! She headlined two campaigns for the brand: S/S 2013 – Angel VS Devil and F/W 2013 Reverse Charm Lipnicure
Which one is your favorite look for the first Clio campaign for the first half of 2013?

If you guys noticed, in the past few days, new names have been posting updates in OhDara… We are very happy to announce that our family has grown bigger!!! ^_^
Please help us in welcoming OhDara/WeLoveDara’s Newest Admins:
@DARLICIOUSX, @CARMELASEPSIA and PRINCESSEXXI!!!
Thanks to Mama Wowa, we were able to donate 65 huggable bear stuffed toys through @1000BearHugs for the children displaced by Typhoon Yolanda in Dara’s name. While we are aware that there is a need for basic necessities, we also acknowledge the fact that the rehabilitation of affected children is also an important aspect of relief operations.

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!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SANDARA PARK!
Thank you everyone who joined us on our #HappyDaraDay Twitter trending party last night! It was a huge success, and the #HappyDaraDay went up to become number one on trending topics!
Then Dara updated her new Instagram account and people went crazy over it for a bit and left the trending for a while, kekekeke, totally understandable though! ^^ However, in just a few minutes, the #HappyDaraDay got right back and trended in several countries! At its peak, it reached number 1 Trending Topic in Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Singapore, and trended in various different countries as well!
Once again, THANK YOU, THANK YOU everyone for joining us and for making Dara’s birthday a truly memorable one. ^^
As most of us all know by now, the Philippines was hit by Super Typhoon Yolanda (international name Haiyan) last Thursday killing an estimated 10,000 people and wiping out billions worth of homes and property. Because of this, OhDara/WeLoveDara did a private donation drive and was able to raise roughly $1000 to donate to the victims of the super typhoon. The money we were able to raise was then forwarded to GMA Kapuso Foundation, Inc. for distribution. The donation was done in the name of Sandara Park in honor of her 30th birthday for the country that she loves dearly as her second home.
We would like to thank our donors for opening up their hearts and pockets to help the victims of such massive destruction and devastation. Once again we have proof that not only did Sandara Park unite all of us in fangirling for K-Pop but she was able to create a community of individuals who love and have compassion to those in dire need. Thank you everyone!
Let us not forget to continue to pray for those whose lives are forever changed by such utter devastation.
Here’s a photo of the 2nd deposit made to GMA Kapuso Foundation, Inc.:
I know some are expecting us to have prepared elaborate personalized birthday gifts for Dara similar to what we have done in the past but we realized that this would mean more not only to Dara but to many of those in need as well.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DARA! WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH!
D-1 To Dara’s Birthday!
Have a meow-wific time as we look forward to a few more hours before our goddess turns 30! Don’t forget to join in on the Twitter Trending Party at 12AM, KST on November 12 (That’s 11PM, Pacific/Philippines time). ^^
