Its that time of year again where we dedicate our time and energy to one of the hardest working Leaders and Emotional Man, Jung Yonghwa!! I along with CNBLUE USA and CNBLUE Puerto Rico partnered together to help create URI Yonghwa, a very Happy 25th Birthday. We all worked hard over the last few weeks designing and planning all the details involved with our birthday cake project for Yonghwa and our ‘Lovely’ Kang Minhyuk, which we also will be celebrating and will share his cake info on June 26th. Finally the time has come to reveal what exactly we’ve been working on and also all the wonderful BOICE worldwide who sent in their love and money to help support us and make this, our FIRST PROJECT, come to fruition! But first, let’s tribute the man of the hour, Yonghwa!
Happy Birthday, Jung Yonghwa
What makes Jung Yonghwa so special? Let’s explore the many layers…
Could it be his boyish charms?
Or Could it be his Irresistible DarkSexyMetal Appeal?
Or maybe its the side he’s most known for… his Emotional Side? Though, no one is more ‘Emotional’ than Lee Shin!
No matter what side of him we get to see, there are so many layers that come together to make up our beloved Jung Yonghwa, we could go on forever exploring them! He always keeps us on our toes as we try to keep up with his energy and his never-ending shining light! We Love you Yonghwa…Happy 25th Birthday our ‘Emotional Angel’!
Project: Happy 25th Birthday, Jung Yonghwa Birthday Cake
After we submitted our cake designs and wishes to the bakery and they gave us our quote, we knew we had to set our goal pretty high in order to cover all the costs. Our initial goal of $550 was way too low so we were really nervous that we couldn’t come up with the $882 our final project costs would be. We ended up surpassed our goal to collect at least $1000 and were able to afford two cakes and accompanying 30 cupcakes for each delivery to Yonghwa and Minhyuk separately, for a total of two cakes & 60 cupcakes! Thanks to all of our supporters, we were able to make it with a little to spare. Here’s the breakdown:
- Total Donations Received: $1334 USD
- Total Needed for Cakes, Cupcakes, & Delivery x2: $896.00 USD (Including Western Union Transfer Fees)/ 995,000 Won
- Total Left over: $438
We wanted to send all the proceeds of the donations from all of you to help fund ‘CNBLUE, Blue School Project’ as we intended to initially, but we didn’t have as much as we thought we would have left over so we decided we should save it toward creating a Birthday Project for Lee Jungshin who will be celebrating his 23rd birthday very soon in September!
