Their hearts are as beautiful as their talents. Suzy and BTS’s J-Hope both donated 100 million KRW (about $89,140) to mark Children’s Day (May 5th).
Last month, Suzy donated 100 million KRW to the Happiness Sharing Taekwondo Federation. Her contributions will go a long way and support orphaned kids and those who had to leave the orphanage.
The actress became a member of the Black Belt Society by donating 50 million KRW (about $44,570) to the organization last year. Happiness Sharing Taekwondo Federation is a non-profit organization for Taekwondo lovers who want to share their love.
But Suzy isn’t the only artist who showed his big heart. J-Hope also donated the same amount to ChildFund Korea.
The foundation shared, “J-Hope sent 100 million KRW in donations for children exposed to violence in Tanzania, Africa.” J-Hope’s donations will go to the “One-Stop Center,” and support the Tanzania child violence prevention project. Including the recent donation, J-Hope’s accumulated donations to ChildFund Korea totaled 700 million KRW (about $624,080).
“Many people from around the world are suffering from COVID-19,” J-Hope said. “I decided to fund overseas children in hopes to deliver the warm sharing to the kids who are suffering in the blind spot.”
Meanwhile, Suzy is getting ready to release her new film Wonderland while BTS announced their comeback with a new English song, “Butter,” on May 21st.
