In a trend that’s growing in popularity, B.A.P fans have donated to charity in member Jongup‘s name to celebrate his birthday.
A spokesperson for Love Snails, a welfare organization that supports children with hearing impairments, stated on February 3, “B.A.P’s fan club has helped aid ill-fortunate children with hearing disabilities and donated money on behalf of Jongup.”
The fan club donated a total of about 1.6 million won (approximately $1,275) in celebration of Jongup’s birthday, which is on February 6. A representative for the fan club said, “It’s impossible to put a number to the suffering of not being able to hear, but we sent this small gift because we want those troubled hearts to hear a little bit of hope and love.”
They continued, “We wanted to provide even a little bit of aid so that those children will be able to hear all the different sounds in the world, like their family’s precious voices and the sound of beautiful music.”
Meanwhile, B.A.P is gearing up for a comeback with their newest album set to drop on February 22.
