Yuna Kim was born in South Korea on September 5th, 1990. 
Feverskating, a place where people who love Yuna are gathered, prepared a birthday event for Yuna’s very special 21st birthday.

Note: According to the western age counting system it is Yuna's 20st birthday.
In Korea a newborn baby is considered to be a year old and one becomes a year older on the passing of the lunar New Years day, not by their birthday.
This creates an age difference of a year or two (depending on whether his/her birthday has passed or not) when compared to the western style of counting age.

♥ Birthday Event #1: LOL Book, Banner Book, Main Graphic Book

There are nights when counting sheep has no effect, just plain old boring days, and days when you just want to have a good laugh…
We collected some of the funniest posts and episodes from Feverskating(Fevers) just for those kind of days and nights.
These episodes related to everything from figure skating to just everyday life stories came from both our off-seasons and on-seasons,
and the most hilarious were collected for the 'LOL Book' project.
  


 
Behold the LOL Book!
We wish for Yuna to keep on smiling and to never lose her bright laughter.
We want Yuna to remember how special she is to us fans; that during difficult times when we are down,
 Yuna and her performances comforts us and gives us the strength to stand up again.

The ‘LOL Book’ contains this message, that you, Yuna,
give strength, hope, and happiness to other people and that there is always someone cheering for you.
Laugh and laugh until your sides hurt!

We also collected the beautiful banners that were made while preparing for the very important 2009-2010 season.
Like Yuna, we wanted to mentally prepare ourselves for this significant season and we did so by making support banners.
 
Feverskating changes its main graphic on a regular basis for special occasions and holidays,
at times for the changing weather, and sometimes just for the fun of it.
   
The ever-changing main page is another fun thing to look forward to when visiting Feverskating!  
 All of the past main graphics were collected, made into a book, and sent to Yuna along with the ‘LOL Book’.

We also present the two banners that Yuna picked out as her favorite, from the 2009-2010 Feverskating banners.
These two were the lucky banners that were chosen by the ‘Queen’ herself!!!

The ‘LOL Book, Banner Book, and the Main graphic Book’ are filled with cherished memories of Fevers
that were made during our delightful journey of following and supporting Yuna’s dreams.
Once again, we would like to thank Yuna for giving us these precious reminiscences and we hope that she enjoys it!
 








♥ Birthday Event #2: Donating to UNICEF

In July, we received the news that Korea's treasure and the 2010 Vancouver Olympic figure skating gold medalist, Yuna Kim,
had been named as an international goodwill ambassador for UNICEF, becoming the first female athlete and the first Korean to hold this title.
 

Nicknamed ‘Queen Yuna’ for her fantastic skating by the media, the figure skating world, and her fans called ‘Seung-Nyang-E’, 
Yuna  is also called ‘Charity Angel’ for her generous donations and interest in various charities.  

Note: ‘Seung-Nyang-E (승냥이)’ is a Korean wolf, otherwise known as dhole or cuon alpinus. It is not a name of a specific fan club.
 It is more of a nickname; anyone who is a fan of Yuna Kim can be called a ‘Seung-Nyang-E’.
 
 
Many of her fans were deeply moved by her generosity and her warm heart for others.
That is why it was not a surprise when Yuna was named an international goodwill ambassador
and her fans were overjoyed and congratulated her with all their hearts.

As an international goodwill ambassador, Yuna went beyond the boundaries of the sport and became a great role model for many individuals.
We believe that she can move the hearts of people all around the world, not just the hearts of her fans.

Given the fact that Feverskating is made up of fans who adore Yuna, we decided to collect money to donate to UNICEF. 
As a birthday present for Yuna, the UNICEF fund-raiser was held from August 19 to September 4, with two different ways to participate.
 

The first was to send \9095 (aprx. $7.77 USD) accompanied by a 6 letter message of love to Yuna.
The number 9095 was to signify Yuna’s birthday. (1990.09.05
A total of  \7,660,750 (aprx. $6,540.94 USD) was collected through this ‘Message Donation.’
 
Shall we take a look at the many messages of love sent through with heart-warming donations?
 

Bank book of messages>>

Note:  Translations of some of the messages.
‘Yuna I love you, Yuna is mine!, Happy skater, Marry me, I trust you, You are the only one, You make me happy, Thank you and I love you,
 Long live the Queen, You are already a legend, I’m always on your side, Lets smile Yuna, You are my start and my end, Favorite skater", etc.
The top #1 message was “Yuna I love you" .



 
Another way to participate was through a ‘No message - Restriction free’ donation. 
Unlike the message donation which had a set donation amount of  \9,095,
this donation account did not have a set limit and was also sent without a personal message to Yuna.
 
Many members sent their love, whether small or big, and in the end, the thought and the love behind it held a much bigger value than the amount itself.
A total of \8,190,202 (aprx. $6,993.00 USD) was raised through this account.

The final total of the two fund-raising accounts came out to be \15,850,952 (aprx. $13,533.94 USD).
On September 5th, we wire transferred  \15,000,000 (aprx. $12,807.38 USD) under the name
 
 <Feverskating> 
to UNICEF. 
The remaining  \850,952 (aprx. $726.56 USD) was sent the following day on the 6th because the daily wire transfer limit was set to \15,000,000. 

Being well-aware of the overflowing of love and generosity that our members have shown in the past,
we set the bar high for our daily wire transfer limit , but as always, the outcome surpassed our highest expectations.
All of the money that was raised was sent to UNICEF to help the children who are suffering from the Haiti earthquake and the Pakistan floods.

We hope that the news of these heartfelt donations of Yuna’s fans will inspire others to participate in making this world a better place.
We send our love and our prayers for the happiness of all the suffering children around the world.



 

Here is the thank-you message sent from UNICEF to Feverskating.

180558194C84BBD79403D3

Hello.
This is the Korean Committee for UNICEF.
We have graciously received your precious donations. 
We send our gratitude to all the members of Feverskating who have contributed to donating such a large sum.

We are very thankful that we are receiving such a present to commemorate our goodwill ambassador Ms. Kim Yuna’s birthday. 
A half of your valuable donation will be used to help the many children suffering in Haiti and the other half to the children in Pakistan.
As you have explained to us in your email, we will use it with grateful hearts since the donation holds a very special meaning for Ms. Kim and her fans.
To verify that your donation has been received, a ‘donation receipt’ has been attached to this mail. 
(One is in pdf format and the other in jpg) 

Once again, we express our thanks to Feverskating in contributing to the cause of UNICEF,
where we strive to make a world where all the children are happy.
  




Note: After the hearing that Yuna Kim had been named UNICEF’s International Goodwill Ambassador,
many of Yuna’s fan sites began a fundraiser in commemoration of her birthday, September 5th.

Each site had a different method of fundraising.

Yuna Kim Fan Caf?: \1,000,000 (aprx. $862 USD)
Yuna Kim Gallery: \14,946,247 (aprx. $12,890 USD)
Figure Skating Gallery: \2,027,000 (aprx. $1,748 USD)
Feverskating: \15,850,952 (aprx. $13,670 USD)

Total: \33,824,199 (aprx. $29,171 USD)

According to UNICF Korea, UNICEF sent one million dollars to the Pakistan flood emergency relief aid.
Among that was the donations made by Yuna Kim’s fans.

We hope that many more people around the world will lend a helping hand to those in need, just like ‘Charity Angel’ Yuna Kim.



 



 
Meanwhile at Fevers….

There was a commotion caused by a comment that had been left under a news article concerning the UNICEF donation of Yuna’s fans.
A person identifying himself as a bank worker had written a comment on a well-known website  (N***),
where comments are posted under the legal name of the commenter.

Jung *********
I work for Nonghyup bank and a lady came up to me the other day with a bank book in her hand and said that she needed me to update it.
When I looked up the account, I found that there were 850 transactions that had to be printed out. 
I told her that if she updated it, we would have to print out a total of 7 bank books and asked if she really needed me to print them all. 
She said that the bank books would be sent to Kim Yuna so she needed all of the transactions to be printed. 
It took me over ten minutes just to print those out. I wonder if Yuna has received it yet?
 




A member of Fevers recognized the writer of that comment and said, “I know him!” 

124EA6144C84C0CD25F028

k******      Woah, Jung******** of Nonghyup bank. I go to the same church with him. LOL




After
this surprising discovery, k****** contacted Jung******** and received the following answer.

151C03364C851B6265F66E

[May the ATSports’ LA show be a success] “Birds of a feather flock together,” said Mr. Jung from Nonghyup bank.

I wrote this as a comment under the ‘free talk’ post but many people asked me to write it as a new post so here it is!
I go to the same church with Jung******** from Nonghyup bank, the guy who printed out our fund-raising bank books.
I sent him a message through N*** saying that I saw his comment posted on a fan forum of Yuna's. 
I told him that I was a member of that forum and asked if it really was him that printed out our bank books:
"Why didn’t you mention this to me? I was one of those numerous participants lol."
And I got this reply:

"LOL
Actually, I did think of you during those 10 minutes haha.
I knew you would've been one of them!
I always knew that you were a Yuna fanatic but I guess the old adage does rule true:
Birds of a feather indeed flock together lol.”

These were his exact words LOL. I guess he had a first-hand experience of this crazy passion that we have for Yuna!
 


Yes, indeed! Birds of a feather DO flock together!
Members of Fevers had a good laugh over this funny coincidence. It certainly is a small world after all!

Mr. Jung of Nonghyup bank, thank you very much for printing out our bank books for more than 10 minutes.
These 6 bank books filled with messages of love were sent to Yuna on September 3rd, thanks to your 10 minutes of patience and kindness!

♥ Birthday Event #3: Birthday message video ‘My Favorite Skater’

f0049977_4c838ed54327d.jpg

In an interview for a fashion magazine in February 2010,
Yuna was asked what her favorite compliment was.

And to this she answered,
“I would like to be remembered as someone's 'Favorite Skater,' not just in the present,
but in the future as well, years and years down the road." 

This interview swept up Feverskating in a frenzy and had a significant impact.
‘My Favorite Skater’ was used in numerous support banners and in main graphic designs for the website.
For this reason, ‘My Favorite Skater’ was selected as the title/theme of Yuna's fan-made birthday video clip.
There were many candidates for the title but ‘My Favorite Skater’ received the most votes.

The 'My Favorite Skater' project asked fans to take a picture of this phrase with no particular restriction on the formation or the medium.
At first, this project was carried out within the members of Feverskating but a few days before the deadline,
 it was introduced to fans outside of Korea and thankfully enough, we received many pictures from fans all over the world. 
Thanks to their support and participation, this project was able to become a much more meaningful birthday present than we had anticipated.

Starting with Korea’s Feverskating members, fans from all around the world participated in this project, including, but not limited to,
Italy, Belgium, Bulgaria, U.S.A., Philippines, New Zealand, Australia, China, Taiwan, and Japan.
A total of 360 people sent 705 pictures to Feverskating, making it a big success.

Yuna had mentioned that her gala ‘Meditation from Thais’ held the meaning of her expression of gratitude to her fans.
We selected ‘Meditation from Thais’ as the background music for this video project for the same reason: to express our thanks to Yuna.
Feverskating’s member 디즈니World♥ composed and played a piano version of this piece of music for the video.


We are very happy that we could send this birthday present to Yuna
since everything in this video was done by her fans (the pictures, the editing, and background music)!

Unfortunately, there were so many pictures that we were not able to fit all of them in the video. 
However, all the pictures that were sent to us were delivered to Yuna. 

As all the fan pictures that were sent in for this project are special to us,
we plan to make a 'My Favorite Skater Ver.2' that will feature each and every picture.
So please do not be disappointed if your picture was not in this video! 
We will come back with another one in the near future!
 




To Yuna, we say it now and will continue to say it in the future, 
'My Favorite Skater YUNA'
