The final leg of Shinhwa’s 2013 Grand Tour in Seoul is almost here (it’s on August 3rd and 4th), and we’d like to once again celebrate Shinhwa’s hard work and show them our support through the sending of an awesome and meaningful rice wreath from the subteam and fans from all around the world.
In Korea, fans send rice wreaths to their artists for special events to show their support for them, and the rice is then donated to charities under the artist’s name. The practice of sending rice wreaths for artist’s events and donating to charity began with Shinhwa Changjo in 2007, and it’s a tradition that has spread to many fandoms around the world today. We would like to carry on this tradition and send rice wreaths for the final leg of Shinhwa’s 2013 Grand Tour to show them our love and support for all their hard work this year.
Earlier this year, we held a similar fundraiser to send a rice wreath for Shinhwa’s 15th Anniversary concert in Seoul. With everyone’s wonderful support, we were able to successfully raise a total of $1,778 USD and donate 650 kg of rice in Shinhwa’s name. We were also able to present them with an awesome stand for their concert which was featured in one of the Shinhwa interviews on TV (3:59 - 4:06). The stand was also placed at the stadium entrance where Shinhwa came and left the venue, so there’s a really good chance they were able to see it too :D. (For more information on Shinhwa’s 15th Anniversary Rice Wreath fundraiser, you can check out these older posts: 1, 2).
It was a truly rewarding and eventful fundraiser for the subteam, being able to work together with our fellow viewers to donate 650kg of rice for charity (especially since it was our very first fundraiser like that), and we’d like to ask for your support once again to help send another awesome rice wreath in commemoration of Shinhwa’s fabulous 2013 comeback.
The Dreame rice wreaths will be from “The ShinhwaForever Team & International Fans” to remind Shinhwa that they are still loved by many around the entire world.
Our goal is to be able to donate as much rice as we can, so we would like to ask for your help in sending Shinhwa rice wreaths. The subteam will be donating $500 (generated from our subbed videos), and we ask that you help us by donating as well.
We will be sending the Dreame rice wreaths through “Dreame.” Depending on how much we raise, we will choose which rice wreath stands to send:
We will be collecting donations through Paypal: you can send your donations to firstname.lastname@example.org (you can also use the donate link on our tumblr page). Send us a message with your name (through our email, tumblr, or leave a message in this thread on the forum) so that we know to include your donation in the Dreame Rice Wreath funds. We will be collecting from today on until July 27th, and we will try to keep everyone updated with how much we have collected on a daily basis (in the forum). We appreciate any and all donations!
Also, if you have any suggestions and ideas for banner designs or what to write on the ribbon, please do leave a message here or in the project thread or email us!!
