Q:Ahh good, I will definitely donate if it happens again :)
Aw thanks! :3
We actually just discussed if we wanted to do it again so we’ll be thinking out the details before anything is official~ 8]
Q:Are you doing this every year? I didn't know about it until now but I don't want to send money and it was only a one time thing and has finished? :)
It was a one time thing and has finished. As of now, we haven’t planned on doing this project again but will let you guys know if we ever do ^^

Update on the Maltese dog we helped!
Hello, BBCs! We have some wonderful news! As you know, our Taeil Birthday Project donations to KARA (Korea Animal Rights Advocates) went to help a Maltese dog who was found with a broken leg and blood clots. KARA posted about it before here. We now know her name is Byul^^ She recovered well and now has a family! :D
They made a post about it on their Facebook:
Byul finally meets her forever family!
We are so happy for Byul. It has not been easy to find a family due to her limping leg but now she will enjoy full attention and love from her new parents!

Recently, Block B released an OST for the MBC drama “The Thousandth Man” titled “Your Umbrella.” Pia and Block B’s Zico also collaborated to release an OST for the MBC drama “Golden Time” titled “Oasis.” They also released a music video for “Oasis” as well. Additionally, member Zico also hinted at the groups possiblecomeback to the Korean music industry.
On September 24th, Block B’s Taeil celebrated his birthday. For Taeil’s birthday gift this year, international and domestic BBCs (Block B’s fanclub) decided to collect donations for charity. Taeil openly shows his love for animals, so the fanclub decided to select the Korean Animal Rights Advocates (KARA) as the charity to receive the donation. They set their donation goal to $500 USD, however, when the project was completed, they had collected $1133.00 USD!
Along with the proof of their donation, Taeil’s fans sent him a message book and other gifts for his birthday. The donation will be used to treat a dog who has been suffering due to a car accident. KARA will be updating the fanclub with pictures showing her progress.
You can check out more of the project at the official project website. You can learn more about the Korea Animal Rights Advocates (KARA) here.
Happy Birthday to Block B’s Lee Taeil!

[UPDATE] Happy Birthday Taeil! + Let’s tip the news sites!
First off, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO TAEIL!! <33
It’s time we send it in tips the the kpop news sites to show BBCs contribution for Taeil’s birthday!
Here is what you can say:
Subject: BBC’s donate to charity for Block B Taeil’s birthday
For Block B’s Lee Taeil’s birthday (Sept 24th), BBC’s started a charity project as a gift for him. Since Taeil has often shown his love for animals, an animal rights organization, the Korea Animal Rights Advocates ( aka KARA), was the decided charity. The goal was to raise $500, but BBC’s managed to raise a total of $1,133 USD. This is the first time international BBC’s have raised this amount. The donations are going directly towards helping a recently abandoned dog who has been suffering from a car crash accident. We wanted to do something good towards society while celebrating Taeil’s birthday.
Countries who donated: USA, Canada, South Korea, Brazil, Peru, Mexico, Spain, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Finland, England, UK, and France.

Aww thank YOU!! ;w; Glad you were a part of this and I’m proud of all BBCs who were!! <333 Can’t wait for Taeil to find out!^^
Q:just curious, is all the donators is shown in that picture? thanks
No, I made a mistake & there are 5 names missing ;___; We are trying to fix it & see if Monica can add them in herself when she receives it before she gives it to Taeil >< I’m very sorry if you were one of those names, I don’t want anyone to be left out :(( It’s my fault, I will update when this is resolved ><
*EDIT* Also, ALL of your messages are still in the book, it’s just the list where those names are missing.
[UPDATE] Proof of Donation + Message Book sent + Good News!
So if you followed our twitter @TaeilBdayProj, you already know we sent our donations to KARA on Sunday. Anyway, KARA has sent us their screen-shot of them receiving our $1,133 USD donation:
It originally said my name but I changed it to say BBC & Lee Taeil since it automatically shows the PayPal user’s name. I put this in the message book & also sent it to KARA to tweet to Taeil :)
Also, the message book was sent out on Thursday. We contacted one of the awesome Stardom staff members, Monica, and she will be receiving the package & personally give Taeil the book on his birthday! Even if it happens to arrive a couple days late, it fine. As long as he gets it ^^ Here are some pics! Aside from the message book, we also sent chocolates & a stuffed doggy =3 Sorry some of the pages are plain, school didn’t give me much time & I wanted to send it asap! Oh and we DID get permission to use those fan-taken pics. Thanks to @britney1829 for them! <3
Now the great news!
As KARA said, they will be tweeting about our donation to Taeil’s Twitter on his birthday. But they will also be making a plaque for Taeil! Monica has been speaking to the Korean KARA staff, so I don’t know the full details on what it will say yet, but when they receive it, she will upload a picture of it and about our project on the official FB & Twitter.
Monica is also going to try to get an article written if she can, which would be great! It’d be perfect to tip to sites like allkpop, soompi, etc. to show BBCs’ contribution with an article. If not, we can tip them with the plaque picture and maybe our tumblr too^^
Ok, the best news!! What is our donation going towards exactly??
KARA said that our donation will be used to treat a recently rescued dog who has been suffering from pain after a car accident. They will be updating her pictures and progress on their site and forward them to us as well! This is really great!! We are really making a difference in a dog’s life! Let’s hope she recovers well! ^^ Don’t know her name yet, but we’ll soon find out! When they update her progress, I’ll post it here, of course :)
To conclude, we just want to thank everyone who participated in this project and helped promote!
We also want to give a special thanks to the following people:
and KARA! :)
Thank you all so much for making this project a success! We exceeded our goal by more than double the amount we originally aimed for! We’re really touched :’) It all went towards a great cause, I’m glad we’re helping an animal in need. Let’s look forward to seeing her progress :)
Now all we have to do is wait for Taeil’s birthday, when he finds out about our gift to him! ^^
Can’t wait! He will be proud! Good job, BBCs! <3
