About the Project
With so many different charities we want to fund raise for, it took us a lot of careful thought and consideration before we narrowed down the focus of our debut fundraising event. Ultimately, we decided on a children focused charity for several reasons.

Other than Lee Joon Gi and Lee Ji Eun's apparent love for children and wanting to somehow honor and acknowledge their on-screen daughter, Seol, from "Scarlet Heart: Ryeo," we also recalled the warmth and love we felt in our hearts at the close bond between Lee Joon Gi and Lee Chae Mi, formed on and off screen since their 2013 drama, "Two Weeks."

Through a public poll of four different children's charity, it was determined, with a 50% vote, that our Christmas Gift for Children efforts will be for Save the Children.

From now until Friday, December 23rd 11:59pm EST, we will be accepting donations of any amount in USD currency. On Saturday, December 24th, also known as Christmas Eve, 100% of the total donation* will be made under this name: Neoui Stargazers Representing Korean Stars, Lee Joon Gi and Lee Ji Eun.

We hope to spread the love we have for both Lee Joon Gi and Lee Ji Eun, as well as to bring hope, love, and joy to the children we help with our combined efforts. Together, we can scatter the dark sky with light, one bright star at a time.

* 100% of the total donation means after the deduction of Paypal's standard 2.9% fee, plus $0.30 USD per donation/transaction.
