Hi, babigurl1 here! BOAB81 asked if I would occasionally guest blog, to which I readily accepted. Here goes nothing! Soooo, back to why we love Bi…
Ok, it’s no secret that we are in love with rain’s sexy body and confident bad boy swagger. But here’s the icing on the cake. Underneath those designer suits and muscular pecks beats a heart of gold. Rain is well known for devoting much time and energy to various charitable causes. There’s a pretty long list and counting. But here are a few items that caught my eye:
- He donated proceeds from his world tour in 2006-2007 to help children orphaned by AIDS.
- There are pictures of him quietly assisting in the cleanup of Taean Beach, S. Korea in the freezing cold after an oil spill.
- He’s also participated in several charity events supporting organizations that locate missing children and work towards ending human trafficking.
- He even donated towards the medical costs of a fan that was terminally ill with cancer, and visited her before her death.
Rain is a modest fellow when it comes to his philanthropic activities and appears to rather his efforts not be publicly recognized, especially when that could mean media intrusion disrupting the lives of those he’s helping. But his celebrity lends itself to raising awareness for important causes and thus his giving spirit seems to have rubbed off on others. Thousands of dollars have been donated by his fans worldwide in his name for victims of the earthquakes in Haiti and China. His protégés, MBLAQ, have also participated in several charity functions, including opening a small concert to help needy children. And if you’ve seen footage of the Blaqies playing with kids, it’s hard to tell who’s having a better time.
I don’t know about you, but the knowledge of all these hot guys helping to support their global neighbors, especially in children’s causes, is enough to make my heart melt and ovaries twitch. 🙂 But seriously, isn’t it nice to know that Rain’s true beauty is internal and that he unselfishly uses his talents and finances to help others? We could use a few more people like that…
