Fans these days are becoming more practical and benevolent when sending gifts to their idols.  Instead of giving gifts of material things to their beloved artists, fans such as that of Leeteuk and Kang Sora, recently honor their favorite artists in the form of donating to charity or similar generous and socially impactful gifts.

Earlier this week, Leeteuk and Kang Sora fans from their recently completed stint on "We Got Married" sent a rice wreath of 1.25 tons to Hanbit (translated: One Light) Blind and Dumb Children's Home, an organization for needy children. It can be remembered that Hanbit is the organization behind the Hanbit String Quartet, which was featured on Star King and whose performance back then touched Leeteuk's heart.  The fans who participated thought to do this project as a memorable farewell gift to their favorite on-screen couple, inspiration for Leeteuk's impending enlistment, and motivation for Kang Sora's continuing acting projects.


On the social action day, 500 kilograms of rice were delivered to Hanbit, with the remaining to be distributed throughout the course of the year. This distribution system allows the food to be fresh and not being stale in nutrients when it finally reaches the recipients. 

The representative at Hanbit expressed gratitude for the thoughtfulness of volunteers and donors of the project.  He expressed the hope that fans continue with their warmth and love towards the disabled and needy.  With this too, he wished that Leeteuk and Kang Sora will also receive much love and attention from more people as a result of the example set by their fans. 

Worldwide fans who participated via donations in the social action event came from Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, and the United States -- proving the far-reaching impact of the couple and the show. 


In a separate event, Kang Sora acknowledged the fans' thoughtfulness and took a photo of the certificate of donation. She expressed her gratitude by indulging the fans with the famed double V-sign reminiscent of one of the couple missions she had with Leeteuk in the show.
