[12.03.12] T-ara declares to donate all their "Roly-Poly" royalties to victims from the Fukushima nuclear accident

Girl group T-ara has offered their help to the Fukushima nuclear accident in Japan by donating all their royalties from their Japanese "Roly-Poly" single.

T-ara, who are currently promoting in Japan said, "We debuted in Japan last September and we're happy for receiving a lot of love from 'Roly-Poly'. We want to give back by donating all of our 'Roly-Poly' album royalties back in the full amount to Japan."

The members said, "Although our donations may only be a little help, our wish is that it'll help some of the victims." T-ara's agency will pass the money on their behalf to the fund for the Fukushima nuclear accident in Japan.

T-ara is known for repaying back their love to their fans, where they most recently went to the subway and volunteered in an elder people's shelter. This time, T-ara are also helping out overseas.

"Although our donations may only be a little help, our wish is that it'll help some of the victims." But they'll become huge role model for other singers even for society itself. Keep up your noble hearts,T-ara! ;)

That's very generous of the girls!

The Japan triple disaster was a horrific event in Japanese history. I had some friends teach abroad and contacting them during that time was very stressful.

Thanks girls & CCM for not forgetting the Japanese people!

T-ara sold about 42K on its first week on oricon, plus Tower Record and DVD sales, with each single costing about 20$, I guess it's about 750,000$ USD. But it's not sales, but royalties T-ara is donating, meaning the money they would have earned from the sales after the distributor, producers, etc. paid themselves. I guess their donation for the 1st week of sales is about 100,000$ USD then.

It's so great of them to do so.

they are very good role models to look up to for sure. doing things like this makes you realize they deserve all the fame the have up until now and it seems they can only get more popular

More like CCM declares to give the donations.

I highly doubt T-ara ever made the decision themselves.

The Fukushima nuclear powerplant incident occurred last year - what made them want to donate now? Aside

from promoting in Japan, it seems a bit whacked to suddenly bring up horrible memories from last year.

Based on the amount of success T-ara had last year, doing it last year would have made it more plausible - just like SNSD did.

It just doesn't add up - unless KKS wants the public to further avoid thinking about T-ara not getting a break

anytime soon (hell, he probably even has someone checking through all the posts in this site).

This is obviously a publicity stunt orchestrated by CCM, like how KARA got a #1 single when they donated JEt Coaster Love sales to Japanese disaster, but I am still glad T-ara are helping out.

Hopefully this will help to grow their popularity more in Japan and they can become as big as KARA and SNSD like they deserve.
