Since its establishment in 2019, The Shiny Foundation has been donating profits made from various auctions and fund-raising activities. For this auction particularly, 50% of the earnings will be used to help victims of the forest fire in Gangwon District, while the rest will contribute to the building of a psychological counseling center.
In addition, The Shiny Foundation has been working tirelessly with the counseling center as a major goal, while at the same time encouraging mental health practices among youths and artists.
