We are proud to announce that we have completed our very first birthday donation project as of April 8th 2012
One of SHINing Encounters' objective is birthday donations on each members' birthday and under the members' name and our puppysaur, Kim Jonghyun
, is the lucky number 1.
We have made a donation to 'Food For The Poor Inc'
, as it won the most votes from you Shawols.
We have donated a total of USD170
to the organization.

Part of the donations (USD70.66
) are taken from SHINing Encounters' funds accummulated from all the pre-orders that we have done till date. Yes, as we have promised and as have been stated in our objectives, the extra 3% for albums and 4% for merchandises are all going back to the boys. As we are just starting out, the funds are still low but we would like to extend our thanks to every single Shawol who purchased albums/merchandises under SHINing Encounters. You have ALL
played a part in this donation.
The extra USD99.34
were from voluntary donations from the following people:
1) Sophia Tan - USD10
2) Tricia - USD10
3) MinMin - USD10
4) Sharmaine - USD15
5) ChengYing Chung (co-founder) - USD25
6) Nikki Au (co-founder) - USD29.34
Also, if you didn't already know, SHINing Encounters played a part in the coordinating of Jonghyun's birthday project by Malaysian Shawols. The birthday dedication messages were published in April's issue of Epop Chinese magazine
. It was printed out and sent to Korean fansite 'Something Special'
who helped deliver it to Jonghyun together with all the other presents they have prepared for the birthday boy.
