[ETA: Holiday emails to Rain] [announcement] It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

[*ETA 12/9: For anyone who ran out of time or couldn’t send a card or gift and would like to send Rain a Holiday e-mail message instead, just send an E-MAIL for him to letitrain@cloudusa.org, one that is simple for us to PRINT OUT, and we’ll include it in Rain’s Christmas box as well.

(Online greeting cards are NOT ideal for this.  Don’t send those.)

Thanks, all. — ^@@^]

°

…in a BOX.

Yes, Cloud USA is pleased to announce that we have decided to send a Christmas box to Rain.

One of Rain’s top supporters has agreed to accept delivery of the box from Cloud USA and is planning to deliver the box to Rain’s management/staff at Rain’s Adieu Concert, on December 31.  If that can’t be done, then the box will be delivered directly to J.Tune.  Cloud USA will be paying the postage for the box to be delivered to Rain.

If you would like to be included in our Christmas box project, please send your gifts to:

Cloud USA
Christmas Box Project
3961 Floyd Road
Suite 300130
Austell, Georgia 30106

PLEASE READ this ENTIRE post very CAREFULLY!

What to send:

• SMALL, unwrapped, non-fragile gifts reflective of your personality and/or LOCATION
• holiday cards

What NOT to send:

• large, bulky gifts
• wrapped gifts that cannot be inspected for customs purposes
• perishable foodstuffs (NO candy, chocolate, cookies, etc.)
• fragile items

Deadline:  Friday, December 10, 2010.

Please do not wrap your gifts. Please understand that if you send us a wrapped gift, your gift will still be unwrapped and inspected for customs purposes.  Cloud USA plans to wrap all of the gifts in Cloud USA wrapping paper created especially for this project.

Please send your gift as early as you can to allow us adequate time to pack and ship the box.  The box will be mailed to Asia on Saturday, December 11 (or Monday, December 13, depending on the number of gifts we need to pack).  Any gifts received after the deadline will NOT be included in the box and the sender will be contacted to coordinate return shipping.

Have fun shopping for or crafting gifts for Rain, dear fans.  (You know — postcards from your city/state/location would really show JiHoon how far his influence has spread!)  Let’s send him a flood of cards guaranteed to put a smile on his face.

Happy Holidays!

Terri :-} and Stephe ^@@^

  7. Okay, Clouds…

    As of the DEADLINE (which was yesterday 12/10), we’ve received gifts, cards, etc. from the following people:

    Riverwood, from Down Under (Thank you for your kind words.)
    Divalcious, from New Jersey (nice one!)
    StarRain’s (gift-wrapping stash & Cloud USA labels…HUGE THANK YOU!), from Las Vegas, Nevada
    J.S. in Washington State (Kingston)
    BiAlamode in Houston, Texas
    Kim in Louisville, Kentucky
    Isavalie in Washington State (Kingston/Seattle)
    Melis in Saint Paul, Minnesota

    MD from North Carolina
    Marisara from Puerto Rico
    Busybee from Pennsylvania
    J & D in North Carolina
    G.C. in the Bronx, New York
    $ to assist with postage (Another HUGE THANK YOU for that.)

    If you DON’T see your name on this list and you’ve sent a gift, give me a holler.

    The wrapping party is tomorrow. We will take some pictures of all of the gifts before and after the wrapping.

    We’ll also be checking the mail one last time on Monday evening, to catch any stragglers. So, even if you miss the party, if you hurry, you might still be able to make the box.

    And remember, if you just didn’t have time to get a gift together, you can always send an e-mail note. Write something sweet up and then send it to us at letitrain@cloudusa.org, and we’ll add it to the package.

    The plan is to mail the package out on Wednesday afternoon.

    BTW, this idea is like the best idea ever. I think you guys are the greatest for doing this, as well as everything else you guys do. I’m so excited for Rain to get his gifts!

  18. Ladies let me try to help with your gifts. When I decided to send a gift to Rain I started to think about what he likes. What is that? Well, music coz he always takes an Ipod with him; something that he couldn’t find anywhere else but your hometown, something from your heart like a special note for him; not to long and with simple english coz remember that english is not his first language. I also thought about something that he can use like a cap from your area or a tshirt or something you specially made for him. Those are the things that he can value coz they are special and unique. But most of all give him your heart so he knows that you love him very much. Remember that those ratings for Fugitive were not what they expected so he needs a little extra from us to keep him warm this holydays. I hope this helps.

    • @aprilshowers07, don’t feel bad. What I sent is not an expensive gift and could be considered cheesy too. However, I think Ji-Hoon will/should appreciate whatever is coming from all of us, because they are gifts from the heart. Personally, I have a hard time shopping for someone I don’t know on a more personal level because I like to give gifts that I know “fits the personality” of that particluar individual, so it’s hard when you don’t know someone like that. Also, he’s rich!……How the heck does one go about shopping for a millionaire?! So, I kept it very simple…….(SMILES)…..Happy Holidays Ji-Hoon!!

      I’m sure your gift will get here in time, but thanks for letting us know it is on the way, so we can be looking out for it.

      I know what you mean. The idea of sending a celebrity (who can buy anything that he wants anyway) a gift has NEVER crossed my mind–until now for Rain. I still haven’t a clue why Rain is different. It makes absolutely NO sense to me at all. None.

      But who cares? Like you said, we’re having fun, and being a “fan-girl” for Rain makes me smile. So, what the heck does it matter?

      Let me answer that. It doesn’t matter. Not at all. Life’s all about love and living and connecting in some small way with the people around you. So, if you can do something that supports all of that and have a great time while doing it, then all the better, I always say. :-}

    • I think they are good ideas.

      I was already planning to send along a list of everyone who had a gift or card inside the box. I’m considering adding the Forum members, we’ll see… and maybe the blog subscribers who are regular commenters (only because subscribers who don’t comment are ID’d only by their email addresses, and sending that information anywhere would be irresponsible).

      As far as the small project you suggested goes, like I said, it is a terrific idea so long as it’s not too large, and what needs to happen is one of you or several of you get together and make it happen, and send it on to us, because Terri and I (and the rest of the staff) simply don’t have the time to do anything more than what we’ve got on our plates right now.

  52. Oh and ladies,

    We will also post pics of the stash of gifts before we pack them up in the box and send them to Rain. So that everyone can “share” in the packing up process, right?

    Does that sound good? This is the first time we have done this, so if you have any cool suggestions, please do let us know.

    Thank you.

    • That is sooo cool!!!! I must admit that I was sad coz I could not go to his Adeu Concert but this gives me the oppportunity to send him something before he goes to the military. I think is going to be a tough time for him, man, I hope not, but anyway is a great idea. I am soo excited!!! I am planning to send him a post card of my family and me with a beautiful background of a place in Puerto Rico so he can see it and maybe a cap. I would love to see his face when he open it. Probably would said, “Where is this place?” LOL Thank you ladies for making this possible for us!!!! 😀

    • Lotus,

      No kidding. That was the question Stephe and I had to ask ourselves: What DO you get a guy who can have anything he wants? And the only thing we could think of was FAN LOVE–pieces of our hearts.

      We thought it would be best to give him something that would tell him more about US, his English-speaking Clouds, because, although we know a heck of a lot about him by now, honestly, what does he really know about any of US. Not much at all.

      I can tell you that if I were a celeb, then that is what I’D want to receive from my fans–not expensive gifts that I didn’t really need, but gifts from their hearts–cards or small, inexpensive gifts that told me a little bit about the fans from which they came, things that helped me to feel a little less alone in this world.

      And we thought he also might enjoy receiving one bigger box filled with lots of different Cloud USA gifts, as opposed to having to deal with all of our gifts coming in separately. Might save him some precious time, at least.

      Terri :-}

  55. Well! Now I have to think quickly of what I want to send. Nothing big, probably a card… I just want to think of him opening the box and thinking: wow people in the U.S. love me too!

    • Kongsao,

      Hopefully, I’m understanding your question.

      If you would like for us to send your gift and cards in the Cloud USA box, along with all of the other Cloud USA members’ gifts, then send it to us at our address at Cloud USA and we will put it in the big box and send it to our contact in Korea.

      If you want to send something to Rain separately yourself, that’s fine. Do what you wish.

  65. @terri or stephe are all Rain’s fans called Clouds? Or are you only a Cloud if you join the official fan club? Can anyone send a card and/or gift or is it only for Clouds?

    By the way I think this is an awsome ideal. This is one of the most sweetest thing a fan could do for an artist. Rain has some of the best caring fans an artist can have.

    Like

    • Yes, that is the official name for Rain’s fans across the Kpop world — Clouds. He once said, “If there are no clouds, there is no rain” about the relationship between himself and his fans.

      When you join the official fan club in Korea or in Japan (by paying membership dues), you are officially recognized by The Cloud. However, you don’t have to be official to consider yourself or call yourself a Cloud. Supporting Rain with integrity and to the best of your ability is all that’s required for that. 🙂

      Honestly, there are regular Rain fans, and Rain Clouds (unofficial), and Clouds (official), several different degrees of folks who like Rain and his work, as is natural. (for instance, a regular Rain fan will patron his albums or his other works and be quite content with only that, whereas a Rain Cloud or Cloud would think nothing of spending hours voting for him for an award, or traveling 1000s of miles for a concert.) This Christmas Box isn’t only for Clouds — it’s for any fan who wishes to send him love, encouragement, and good will this holiday season.
