Cheermasters Auction & Donation
After the close of the 2017 KBO season, Team Jokbal went to work sorting the collected items, posting them to the website, and preparing to sell their 1st round of items at the annual Cheermasters Charity Event in Seoul. On December 9, 2017, We met up with the cheermasters at Green Light Pub in Seoul to enter some items in their charity auction. When the night came to a close, the cheermasters had sold 4 items and brought in about 1.5 million won. Of the 1.5 million, 1 million won was donated to their charity and 500,000 came back to us at Team Jokbal to be donated to our selected orphanages. It was a great night and we were happy to be a part of the excitement.
Myeong Dong Bo Yook won Donation
After a couple of months of selling some of the items via internet contact and word of mouth, we were ready to make our second round of donations. This time we were able to contact Myeong Dong Bo Yook Won (one of the orphanages we selected to support) and arrange to meet with them on Saturday, March 17, 2018. We arrived around 1 pm and spent an hour or two hanging out with the kids. It was an awesome time meeting the kids. They were all really great and it was fun to spend some time getting to know them. Afterwards, we met with one of the orphanage workers and gave them a donation of 1.5 million won.
Ae min Bo Yook won Donation
A few weeks after making our donation at Myeong Dong Bo Yook Won and making a few more sales, we got in contact with the 2nd orphanage, Ae Min Bo Yook Won, and arranged to meet them for a donation. On Sunday, April 8, 2018, we met with a couple of the orphanage workers and made a donation of 1 million won to them.
Gangneung Ja Bi Won
We haven't made our donation to Gangneung Ja Bi Won yet since we are waiting to sell a few more items and arrange a weekend to go over and meet up with them. As soon as a few more sales are made, we will make contact with them and go over to make a donation. If you are interested, we still have 4 bats left to sell to clean out the inventory of items from the 2017 season. Just get in touch with us via this website, our Instagram page @teamjokbal, or our Twitter account @teamjokbal to make a purchase.
Last but not least, we would like to take another moment to thank all of the players that donated items, the cheermasters that helped us make our 1st sales and donations, other people such as interpreters and friends that have helped us spread the word of what we are doing, and the fans that have purchased from us. Without everyone's help and support there is no way that we could have been as successful as we have so far.
With the 2018 season now in swing, we are working to get things up and running again this season. Please check back often as we talk about our adventures, showcase the donated items, and begin to sell things for the 2018 season.
