Additionally, one of T-ara’s dedicated fansites – Tiara Diadem – began a project in the beginning of April to raise funds for a forest under T-ara’s name, in accordance to their 5th anniversary date. Various official fansites from all over Asia planned to participate as well. All sites will be pitching in money together for the event, which will be conjoined with aid from TreePlanet, the organization that they’ve partnered with to facilitate the plans. Funds were collected by Tiara Diadem for relatively two months, where they gathered a successful amount of over $2100. The location will be revealed later today through the site, and the trees will be planted during the fall season, which is the best time for growth during the year in South Korea.

SNS album giveaways will also take place with both solo debuts that T-ara accomplished this year – three copies of Jiyeon’s solo mini-album “Never Ever” (including autographs), and two copies of Hyomin’s mini-album “Make Up.” The only requirements are to incorporate social media portals (SNS) in order to follow the fansite through Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and reblog their article through all three portals. Then, those interested must reply both to the portal article as well as the forum thread. In order to have a chance at winning at least one album, one needs to simply complete at least one of the five steps. The more SNS requirements one fulfills, the more chances they have of winning the specially given albums.

Fans and members alike are celebrating T-ara’s latest achievement on the special date of Tuesday, July 29th (KST). Congratulations to T-ara for coming this far in their music career!
