Awwww, Dara you have one of the biggest hearts I know! ❤ 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!!

Dara & Thunder Start Charity Campaign for Haiyan-struck Philippines
Recently, the Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines, resulting in nearly 4,000 fatalities and over 10,000 injured. In response, the siblings Dara of 2NE1 and Thunder of MBLAQ set up a charity campaign at the WEGENERATION website to raise funds to donate to the Philippines.
“We are especially worried about the Philippines because we spent our childhood there,” the siblings wrote on the site. “Please support us so our neighbors in the Philippines can overcome their hardships and stand on their own two feet again!”
Haiyan was the most powerful typhoon that ever made landfall, and struck its first target, the eastern Philippines coastal city of Tacloban, with hurricane force (Beaufort force 12) winds and tidal waves that literally swept over the city.
Dara and Thunder’s campaign began on November 11 and will continue for six weeks. The target figure is 5 million Korean won, approximately 4,700 US dollars. The money raised will be handed over to the World Share charity organization to support emergency aid in the Philippines. Ten supporters will be chosen by lot to receive five of Dara’s treasures and five of Thunder’s.

Dara really has the Philippines in her heart and mind all of the time. I love the way she always treasures the Philippines and the Filipino people and thinks of the country as her other home.. We appreciate the prayers and yes, I did smile when I saw her link to Jollibee Foundation. ^^
