For Super Junior‘s 10th and 11th Anniversaries, ELFs came together to help build schools in Africa.
Through the Twitter account, SJ Charities, fans around the world were able to learn about the project. SJ Charities set up a system where ELF fan clubs were able to monitor their progress and promote their fundraising efforts for the project.
The group worked with Build A School In Africa, which is an award-winning all-volunteer based organization that “works to ensure children in rural Africa have the best opportunity to learn.” In a recent newsletter, the organization acknowledged the help of the fans in honor of Super Junior for the charities 15th school built in Tiogola.
According to the SJ Charities twitter page, 45 ELF fan clubs participated in the project. Contributions from the Seoul Police as well as SUJU member Yesung‘s cafe, Mouse Rabbit, took part as well.
In the past, Siwon participated in a child abuse campaign to help raise awareness. Have you ever participated in a fan project for your favorite group? Let us know in the comments below!
