BTS‘s J-Hope has donated ₩100 million KRW (about $84,000 USD) to support underprivileged children during the winter season.
The Green Umbrella Foundation announced on December 31 that J-Hope donated ₩100 million KRW (about $84,000 USD) to support underprivileged children in Korea. The donation will be used for medical expenses and to provide heating for children in low-income families and care facilities.
J-Hope also shared the reason why he made the donation.
I was worried that children suffering economically during the Covid-19 pandemic would have a double whammy and go through a cold and lonely winter. I hope this donation will help children have a warmer winter.
J-Hope has donated over ₩800 million KRW (about $672,000 USD) to support children, both in Korea and overseas.
