[181207] Sowon's 24th Birthday Project Support by GFSquad

7 posts in this topic

Hello Buddies!

GFSquad is back again and  will be doing a Birthday support project for Sowon 24th Birthday this year! As we have been for our past projects, we will celebrate again by collecting funds to purchase a wreath to donate under Sowon's name as well as give her a message book with message from Buddies! We will also be purchasing gifts for the Sowon! Like our previous Birthday supports, we will have member and donor involvement as well! See "GFSquad Member Project Involvement" below for more details.



For those who haven't seen the types of projects we do, please visit here to see reviews of all our previous projects!



Donation Goal:$350 USD

This donation goal will be to cover the cost of purchasing a wreath and message book for Sowon. All extra donations will then be allocated to purchase gifts for Sowon.

Minimum Donation Amount: $5.00 USD

Donation Period: October 9, 2018 - November 9, 2018 (Ends at 11:59PM KST)

Benefits for Donors:

  1. A Forum Donation Award added to your profile. Example of previous awards:

  2. Your forum status will also be changed from "Bud" or "Buddies" to "Donors"
  3. A free forum title change. (Post your title change requests here




To make Buddies feel more involved in our projects, Buddies can help make decisions on the outcome of the project! 

Donors of the project will be invited to join a project team group chat, on the instant messaging app LINE, to brainstorm and work together on project tasks like:

  • Decide on what wreath to purchase
  • The wording on the ribbons on the wreath
  • Type of gifts
  • Wrapping of gifts
  • etc.

For all Buddies who have donated to the project, please visit the below Donor thread (Only accessible to donors) to find the link to the chat.


Our initial donation goal will be to cover the cost of the Wreath and message book as that is the core of the project. The donation goal will be decided once the type of wreath is decided. If we exceed our donation goal, the excess donations will be used to purchase a gift for Sowon! This will be decided jointly with members.

The process for deciding what gifts we will buy will be something like this:

  • Take suggestions from Buddies and compile them together
  • Create a poll for Buddies to decide on what to purchase
  • The winner of the poll will be the gift chosen to be purchased.

*We will try to make this as interactive as possible. However, if we run into unforeseen obstacles that may hinder the project timeline, GFSquad will make the executive decision on what will be done"



  • Please help us decide on what type of wreath to purchase for the Sowon! 
    You may vote for the type of wreath in the polls above. (Deadline: TBA)
  • Please submit your messages and fanarts for our Message Books for Sowon! (Google Form link and Email can be found in GFSquad main page!)




To ensure that we are able to compile the wreath and gifts by Sowon's birthday, there will be a schedule that we will follow:

  • Donation Period:
    • October 9, 2018 -November 4, 2018
  • Message Compilation for Message Book Process:
    • October 9, 2018 - November 4, 2018
  • Gift Decision Process (if applicable):
    • TBA
  • Ordering and Compiling of Gifts:
    • TBA
