Hey guys! It's been SO long and I apologize for that. We've been busy with your orders and with life, but we did want to update you all on a little something we've added to the shop!
A lot of people have been asking us about adding SHINee decals to the store and making them available for purchase. For the longest time, this idea didn't sit well with me. I talked to a few friends about this and they can tell you how I was so against the idea, it felt as though it was in poor taste to me and I just didn't want to do it.
It wasn't until my best friend and production partner who helps me with your orders suggested something to me. She suggested that maybe if we donated proceeds from the sales of SHINee decals to an organization, it would seem better...and it did.
I immediately went online and researched different organizations. Originally, I was going to choose a Korean support organization, but when I found The AFSP, I knew they were the one. They're dedicated to researching and preventing suicide here in America, something most of us have been affected by at some point in our lives. Friends I grew up with, they unfortunately took their own lives by the time we were 21. My own uncle took his life in 2010, my father and I being the ones notified by police.
We all know the sad and tragic ending to Jonghyun's life in December of 2017, there's no need for us to go over the details again. With this, though, we decided that 50% of ALL purchases of SHINee decals available in our shop would be donated to the AFSP. We're still tallying July and with just a few days left in August, we will have a two-month total for you as we send our donation off.
Thank you to all of you who have supported this effort and have purchased SHINee decals. Thank you all for supporting the AFSP and any of those whose lives have ended tragically due to suicide.
