On April 28, it was reported that Olympic gold medallist Kim Yuna also opened up her heart to the victims of the horrific earthquake that shook. According to her reps, Kim Yuna, who has been UNICEF's goodwill ambassador since 2010, donated $100,000  through UNICEF. According to the Korean Committee for UNICEF, Kim Yuna made the donation in hopes of providing food and potable water to the children living in earthquake-affected areas.

To encourage people to donate, Kim Yuna also took to Twitter to promote UNICEF's efforts in assisting children in Nepal who have been badly scarred by this tragedy. She also called for her Twitter followers to help in whatever way they can.
