Artist from C-JeS Entertainment use their talent to inspire and encourage students who were affected by the Typhoon Haiyan.
On April 1, the NGO World Vision shared that artists from entertainment company C-JeS Entertainment have participated in a donation project for the students who were affected by the Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines last November 2013.
Choi Min Sik, Seol Gyung Gu, Lee Jung Jae, Park Sung Woong, Song Ji Hyo, Gummy, Kang Hye Jung, and Park Yoo Hwan hand-wrote personal messages of encouragement for the students, and these messages were printed at the back of 20,000 Dream Notebooks that are to be delivered to the Philippines.
Jeon Ji Hwan, head of the International Relief Team from World Vision, stated, "Most of the schools and classrooms were devastated after the storm, and currently, students are taking their classes in town halls or open spaces. World Vision and the Philippine Department of Education are working closely together for the sake of the children and their education."
"The notebooks donated by the artists from C-JeS Entertainment will go a long way, especially since educational supplies in the area are very lacking," he added.

MANILA - TV hosts Iya Villania and Drew Arellano finally exchanged vows on Friday afternoon after 10 years of being a couple.
Villania, 27, and Arellano, 34, got married in a private ceremony in Tagaytay that started at around 3:30 p.m.
Family and friends of the couple from showbiz attended the wedding, including "It's Showtime" host Kim Atienza, who was one of the principal sponsors.
While stuck in traffic, Atienza posted a tweet on his way to the ceremony. "I will get to your wedding @DrewArellano and @iyavillania even if I have to run there. #terribletagaytaytraffic," he said.
Another close friend of the couple, singer Paolo Valenciano, took to Instagram to share his excitement for the wedding. He posted a photo of a road sign leading to the venue, as well as of Arellano "inspecting" the set-up moments before the ceremony. Valenciano later shared a photo of Villania walking down the aisle.
Villania and Arellano, who celebrated their 9th anniversary as a couple last May 9, have been vocal about having "plans for the future," but not about the details of their wedding.
"We are really just a private couple and I would like to think that it's something that has helped us in becoming strong so far," said the actress host in an earlier interview, when asked about the secret to maintaining a long-lasting relationship.
