LGBTQ Youth Crisis Support Center DDing Dong thanks Shawols for their donations




DDing Dong sincerely appreciates the fans that who have supported us under the name of 'SHINee Jonghyun'.

We are sorry to share such heartbreaking and tragic news that SHINee member Jonghyun left us suddenly. Nevertheless, there were fans who have supported DDing Dong through Global Giving (https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/rainbow-teen-safe-space/). Within two days of December 19 and 20, we have received more than $4,000 in total from 173 fans a around the world. The sudden news is indeed heart-aching, however we think it is a surprise gift from Jonghyun who cared about others more than anyone.

Jonghyun meant a lot to DDing Dong as he once raised his voice about the discrimination that LGBTQ individuals suffer in Korea. Also, this support comes to a very special meaning to DDing Dong as it encourages LGBTQ fans of Jonghyun who are grieving for the passing of Jonghyun.

We will make sure to use the fund received under the name of Jonghyun for homeless LGBTQ individuals.

As Jonghyun once supported LGBTQ individuals mentioning 'Difference is not wrong, I do support you'. We hope that the great artist, Jonghyun will stay in our hearts forever.
