Taemin’s fans donate to various charities in honor of his birthday
On July 19th, SHINee’s maknae and dancing machine, Taemin turned 22 years old (Korean age), and to commemorate the special day, both Korean and international fans worked together to prepare a special gift.
Various Taemin Fansites (God’s Child, ITAEM, JusTaemin, Kindergarten, Last Fantasy, My Fairy, Nineteen, Real Story, Stairway to Heaven, Taem x Taem, Taemining, Taempo) teamed up to form the fan-union ‘Ilovetaem’. Together, they held a fundraising event to raise money for the less fortunate. The fan-union successfully raised two significant amounts: 7,180,000 won was donated to KBS ‘Love Request’, and 10,000,000 won was donated to UNICEF Korea. Both donations were made under Taemin’s name in honor of his birthday, and the money will be used for the welfare of the less fortunate people.
Fans in Thailand also commemorated Taemin’s Birthday with donations to the less fortunate. They donated to the Thai Red Cross Society: Operation Smile to help kids who suffer from having a cleft-palette.

Okay guys. Time for some extra information.
Do you know why these Taemin fansites did this in the first place? It’s because last year, Taemin thanked his fans and fansites for all the presents that he received on his birthday. However, he kindly but firmly stated that he didn’t need all of those material things and asked them to use their money to donate to charities instead, who he claimed "needed it more than he did."
This year, those lovely fansites listened to our little Prince’s wish.
Forever proud to be a Shawol.
