The celebration didn't end there. Several Onew fansites joined forces to donate money and resources to good causes. Over $6,000 was given to his alma mater's scholarship program through Naver Happy Bean, and coal briquettes were handed out to impoverished South Koreans. The Korean Foundation for the Prevention of Blindness and the Korea Childhood Leukemia Foundation received over $4,000.
