The social welfare organization The Snail of Love recently relayed a message of thanks to singer Kang Daniel and his fans for their generous back-to-back donations.
Previously, on Christmas Eve, Kang Daniel donated 30 million won ($26,000) to The Snail of Love in his fandom’s name DANITY. The Snail of Love is an organization that provides cochlear implants and hearing aids to those in need, helps others adapt to the change and integrate into society, and educates the public on social awareness.
This follows his previous charity work for people with hearing and speech difficulties, where Kang Daniel had assisted with providing voice-assisted ringtone services with KT for International Day of People with Disabilities (IDPWD) in early December.
In response to the news, DANITY flooded The Snail of Love’s website with further donations. The Snail of Love thanked DANITY for donating more than 30 million won.
Kang Daniel's fans are so amazing!!! Over 30 million won has been raised from just fan donations ㅠㅠ With this support, more hard of hearing people will be able to hear sounds ~ Fans returning the amount of love they receive from their star... GOOD!! In the future, please give lots of attention to The Snail of Love ^ㅡ^
The organization also posted a real-time screenshot of a portion of the fan donations to show how fast they were coming in.
A few days later, The Snail of Love published a message of gratitude, explaining that after the news of Kang Daniel's donation, many fans' participation was a big help, and the Happy Bean Funding was successfully completed.
Happy Bean Funding has been completed after receiving attention from many people ㅠㅠ After the news of Kang Daniel's donation, all the fans joining in gave us a big boost... Thank you so much. We will continue to keep donors including DANITY updated about future news!
An update on December 31 revealed that 1,575 DANITY donated a total of 65 million won to this charity.
In a separate donation, reflecting Kang Daniel's wishes “to help everyone spend a warm winter,” KONNECT Entertainment also donated a total of 31,000 briquettes to 31 briquettes banks nationwide, which provide those in need with free coal briquettes. KONNECT said, “On December 10, we heard DANITY conveying their warm hearts to many places. In return, we joined the donation ahead of Christmas, all thanks to the good influence DANITY have shown. We hope the warmth will be spread out.”
