f(x)'s Luna made a kind donation in response to a heartbreaking story about a girl who can't afford feminine hygiene products. 


The idol star has self-designed underwears and will be donating all the profit from its sales to KUMFA or Korean Unwed Mothers' Families Association. Luna decided to start the campaign after hearing the story about a girl who used shoe pads in replacement of feminine hygiene products.

Prior to the fund donation, Luna also delivered 14,400 feminine hygiene products to the organization. Representative Kim Do Kyung from KUMFA shed tears and thanked Luna for her kindness, and stated, "This is the first time a celebrity visited the organization themselves."


Watch Luna's kind donations for KUMFA in the clip above.

This is why we need to become more familiar to products like the menstrual cup , which is reusable for years :(  So kind of her.

They're good for the environment and saving money but they aren't in keeping with some women's beliefs.

shoe pads are cheaper than feminine hygiene products?

In Korea they are too expensive

i thought maybe you could like.. wash shoe pads or something and reuse them?

Some poor women does that they use shoe insoles or toilet papers cuz they can't afford to buy pads which is ridiculously expressive for such an important item all women needs.

This melts my heart. A lot of us never actually realise how privileged we are to have access to these things. Bless her heart, because they really are expensive.

Fans of Luna, follow her example and get involved in your local charity organisations. I personally volunteer for "Days for Girls" , a non-profit organisation that provides teenage girls and women all around the World with reusable sanitary pads. There is an urgent needs right now for those kits, especially in refugee camps.

Luna is such a sweetheart. She seems really genuine and kind-hearted in everything she does.

I hope a lot of idols will become more active in raising awareness to important social issues. :) I'm very proud of the woman you've become, Luna. :D You deserve the best!

Pads are fucking expensive in South Korea and in a lot of countries while it's a necessity for all women, in the world, each month... I live with my boyfriend and we do shopping together each weeks, when I buy pads he still can't understand why this is so expensive while every women in the world have to buy this product each month because of this natural/biological event from their body. It's a real taboo in some society to talk about menstruation/periods because of religious sequels who said that is what make a woman impure : when she menstruates. I know in India it's really hard to find pads on shops (I think you can only find them on pharmacy) and it's really expensive, and a lot a girl are ashamed to buy them because of their society's vision of it. So for young girl/high school girls, you have a lot of story of young korean teens (12-16 years old) who can't afford to buy them, or afraid to buy them and misses school for a week to a month because of humiliation and because they can't afford to buy them. (an interesting article on this topic on Korea here : 10mag . com/korea-sanitary-pads-rising-price ) And I still don't talk about tampon, this is x1000 more expensive than pads and are a little more hard to find in Korea.
Luna is such a role model, and she's brave to talk about it when a lot of women are embarrassed to talk about while it's the most natural thing that's happen to women and is not well-accepted by society.

It does get hard some days not to feel like society hates women. I mean I can walk into a family planning clinic and grab a handful of free condoms but should I be in desperate need of a pad I have to go to the toilet and get my wallet out. How does that make sense?

It's nice when fans make huge donations in the name of their idols. But having the idols themselves do the donating because they are able to? That's more! Luna really has such a good heart. That's why she's blessed with such a good voice. <3
