Jang Nara converts paydays into charitable donations
Jang Nara is turning a few paydays into charity opportunities, sending a total of 200 million’s worth ($156,000) of items to help the needy.
Recently, Jang signed a contract to promote a children’s/junior’s clothing brand, Our Q, which is a deal worth about 100 million won. Instead of cash payment, however, her fee is being delivered as 100 million won’s worth of clothing, which will be split between two charities. That means 50 million won’s worth will go to clothe underprivileged Korean children via the Korea Food for the Hungry International, while another 50 million in clothes will be sent to a Chinese charity to help earthquake victims in Sichuan.
Furthermore, she’s also entered into a contract with a Chinese cosmetics line worth 100 million won; again, her payment will be converted into that much worth of toothpaste, hand cream, and other items to be sent to North Korea. It’s a creative way to negotiate her contracts, that’s for sure (and I’m sure the companies prefer sending their own merchandise as payment rather than cold, hard cash anyway). Wins all around.
