For Fans From Fans is a platform dedicated to K-POP Fans around the world. This project began in early 2014 when admins Mari, Alexa and Sara noticed the amount of fans who could not afford albums and K-POP merchandise. We came up with the idea of holding random giveaways through our personal Twitter accounts to help some fans when our friends took notice of this, they began donating their spare albums. That was the beginning of the ongoing project, For Fans From Fans.
Over the years, we have grown from just a small project to a large one: giving away nearly 500 items, having over 400 winners, about 300 contributors and almost 11k followers! Our followers on Twitter are from all around the world and contributors are always showing their love and support by promoting and donating. For Fans From Fans continues to accept donations from fellow K-POP fans and we continue to grow and stand together with fellow K-POP fans who need our help.
As fellow K-POP fans, we promise to keep For Fans From Fans open for as long as we possibly can and to continue putting a smile on the faces of fans around the world. For Fans From Fans is currently run on the funds fans have donated and we hope to keep it going this way. We wish to continue spreading happiness through K-POP, one fan at a time.
