Some big-time Korean celebrities are giving out some big love for an online fundraising event for Save the Children, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting children's rights and providing relief to millions of children around the world.

Hosted and sponsored by Korea's largest e-commerce company Gmarket, along with news company TV Report, the "Give Love" charity is a two-week-long online fundraising event where celebrities donate personal belongings to be sold off to the public for a very good cause. Save the Children, which was founded in 1919, is an international non-governmental charity that works to improve the lives of children all over the world. And right now, in Korea, a total of 32 celebrities are playing their part in bettering the lives of kids in need. The stars involved in "Give Love" are Kim Soo Hyun, Park Hae Jin, Song Hye Gyo, AOA's Seolhyun, and EXO, among others. 

How the charity works is that anyone who wants to participate can simply buy an application ticket for 1000 won, which isn't even a dollar. Once you have the ticket, you can bid for any item you want. Then, the winner is determined by a computer-generated lottery. The charity will go on until January 23rd, with the lucky winners names to be released on the 25th. As of now, a jacket worn by Kim Soo Hyun has garnered over 2122 bids, totaling 2,122,000 won in donations to Save the Children. Because it's not in traditional auction format where whoever bids the highest wins, everyone has a chance! As long as you pay your 1000 won to enter, you have just as good a chance as the millionaire next to you who's trying to win the same item.

There's still time to participate, and this event is open to all, so check out Gmarket's website if you want to "give love" to the children of the world.
