Celebrities join Unicef project


Celebrities from SM Entertainment, one of the country’s biggest talent agencies, took part in a campaign sponsored by Unicef last week to help children displaced by the earthquake that struck Nepal on April 25.

According to Unicef affiliate on Friday, 11 SM entertainers, including all five members of the girl group f(x) and Choi Si-won of Super Junior, helped put together Awoo dolls - rag dolls meant to symbolize children - to be donated to the organization.

The dolls will be put up for auction on the Unicef website in Korea from April 30 to May 6. While on auction, they will be displayed at COEX, in southern Seoul. All proceeds from the event will go towards helping children in Nepal.

On Saturday, the female ensemble Girl’s Day also donated 10 million won ($9300) to the Red Cross to help the victims of the quake, according to one of the organization’s affiliates. Girl’s Day member, Minah, posted a picture last week on her personal Instagram account that read, “Pray for Nepal, please be strong.”
