BTS J-Hope just turned 27 on February 18 and decided to spend his big day doing good deeds. J-Hope celebrated his birthday by donating KR₩ 150 million (around US$ 135,000) to ChildFund Korea to support children with vision and hearing disabilities.
J-Hope Is A Notable Donor of ChildFund Korea
According to KpopHerald, BTS J-Hope is currently a Green Noble Club member, which honors those high-value donors of ChildFund Korea.
It is not surprising to note that the South Korean superstar is a longtime supporter of ChildFund Korea. Last year, J-Hope donated KR₩ 100 million due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I heard that the number of families in vulnerable situations is increasing significantly due to the prolonged COVID-19 crisis, and support for disabled children is urgently needed. I hope this donation will further expand social interest in supporting children with disabilities,” he said at that time.
In 2018 and 2019, J-Hope also donated to Childfund Korea to support sick children and help low-income students attend his former high school in Gwangju city.
Child Fund Korea Chairman thanked J-Hope
Lee Je-hoon, ChildFund Korea chairman, thanked J-Hope for his generosity, noting that “his good influence is leading to increased inquiries in [donations] by both domestic and foreign ARMY.”
“ChildFund Korea will also do our best to support children from low-income families in accordance with the wishes of all our donors, including J-Hope.”Lee Je-hoon, ChildFund Korea chairman
