On May 31, it was reported that BTS‘s Jin has donated more than 100M won to UNICEF and became a member of ‘UNICEF Honors Club’.
The Honors Club extends membership to individuals who have donated over 100 million won (approximately $84,000).
Jin is said to have been a regular donor since last May, and only recently decided to reveal his work and that he had joined the Honors Club as he believed in the idea that “Good influence grows if it is shared.”
UNICEF Korea Secretary-General, Lee GiCheol also showed his gratitude to Jin by thanking his positive influence and inspiration towards the youngsters. He also hopes that through this, many people will gain an interest in the campaign.
BTS is currently on their world tour and they will have a UNICEF booth at their concerts on June 1 and 2 at the Wembley Stadium in London to continue their work.
