▶ An account by a volunteer who is deeply touched by how YoonA did volunteer work secretly in Peru
I went to a school in Peru to do volunteer works with friends, a teacher teaching there told me that YoonA has ever came here to do volunteer works too. But no matter how i search on the net, i could not find a single trace of news related to this. I am really touched by how she carried out all these secretly.
The teacher looked at me (as i was the only Asian in the team) and spoke to me using broken English, “SNSD’s YoonA also came to do volunteer work here before.” I stared at him and thought to myself: “YoonA? SNSD’s YoonA? Why would she come here?” So i reconfirmed with him again, ” Are you sure? SNSD’s YoonA, that pretty Korean girl?” And then he replied, “Yes”, before continuing to tell me more of what YoonA did for the school.
I was still in shock and in disbelief that she travelled to the other side of the World just to play with the less fortunate kids given her high status in our society.
The teacher also said, ” There are alot of Koreans who came over here to provide aid, they are really great people, i really like Koreans. I am really in big shock. That night i went back to my hotel and tried to search on the net on YoonA volunteering in Peru, but no matter how i can’t find any news. So from what i know, YoonA just did all these secretly for herself and for others, and not to announce to the world. I just want to share this thing to everyone.
▶ Donated 20 million won but no news reports on this after a few months, inthe end fans only came to know this through a report from Jung-gu that mentioned YoonA.
Continuous donations to families with financial difficulties.
SNSD’s YoonA who is the ambassador of Jung-gu, donated 20 million wons to Dream Hearty in last year December 21st (note i’m not sure if this refes to 2013 or earlier). She also donated to education career organisation, giving 1 million wons each to 10 low-income families, and 10 million wons worth of scholarships.
▶ Since early debut, sponsored numerous times to World Vision org, but there isn’t any reports on it, only when World Vision org is doing a report at the year end, did people find out of this.
YoonA’s intention is to do charity silently, so there isnt any news, only tip a certain area is doing a summarised report did people find out she has actually donated several ten millions won. Her sponsorship on kids in her early debut is also discovered through World Vision org.
▶ Jung Ae-ri mentioned in a magazine interview, YoonA whom she did volunteer work with is someone who will try as much as possible not to publicise the things that she did. Her doing volunteer work with Actress Jung Ae-ri is also only revealed through Jung Ae-ri’s interview.

Thanks to Jung Ae’ri, SNSD’s YoonA who works with her in drama also became a volunteer.
▶ Making a surprise visit with a cake to a student with disabilities who is also a fan of YoonA
Junho, a student with disabilities, whose wish is to meet with SNSD’s YoonA.
