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.

That's a really nice thing to do and it's good since it's pretty much a win-win for everyone around.

Oh wow, i'm impressed. That's very generous and creative of her.
The companies pay lesser than they suppose to give if they are to give away their merchandise and it's also a way of advertising. Cool.
I kinda wish Jang Nara acts in a k-drama again. I haven't seen her in korean dramas for years.

I think she did the same kind of thing to rebuild one of the schools in the worse hit area of china from that earthquake earlier this year. Getting her corporate sponsors and partners plus fan base, not to donate $ as such but items that can either be of used or resold.
Many celebrities can give $ and good for them but it takes a big heart to go the extra step and give your time to charity work as well, speciality when you a workaholic like Jang Nara.
As for any back lash in regard to this, I do not think they well be much, only from the die-hard anti-fans, as I said she been doing such things for a long time.

Never a crazy fan of her but that's such a smart way to encourage donations~ We need more people like her especially around the Christmas season. She hasn't aged a bit either ^^
