Thanks to everyone who participated in this year’s Burstday Project!
We collected a total of 95 messages for the message book and opted to include all the messages we received instead of just sticking to our original goal of 60 messages. We can’t show you all the messages here, but are providing pictures of some of the pages:
check out below for pictures
*honestly you guys, I spazzed out when I saw the message book. It looks sooooooo good. All the messages and pages were so pretty. I’m sorry I can’t show you more pages but a lot of the messages were very touching and private.
As we reported earlier, we collected a total of USD 277 which went towards the printing of the message book (USD 76) and the purchase of gifts:
The Obey the Boston T shirt (USD 30)
All Music Guide to R&B (USD20)
The World Map (USD 23)
(we didn’t unroll since its pretty huge, but you can see the product picture here. We also didn’t wrap it up)
And an additional shirt (USD 27) – The Vision Test shirt
In addition, ATY staff included some dog toys for Boss in the package (USD 26.79):
Packaging was USD 93 (this was wrapping, boxes, ribbons, shipping packaging) , including a small thank you gift for the person doing delivery.
A final birthday card
Everything ready to be shipped
ATY donated USD 200 in shipping expenses. The balance of USD 47 was donated to the Japan Red Cross in Taeyang’s name. He will receive a certificate notifying him of the donation soon, it will be delivered to the YGE building.
I finally was able to mail it out yesterday (UPS had some issues in finding my apartment so the message book was a bit delayed, lol) and according to USPS it will arrive in Korea by Saturday. From there our contact will deliver it to a YGE manager as soon as possible.
Again, on behalf of ATY I want to say a big THANK YOU for making this possible. We couldn’t have done this without you guys.
