BIGBANG’s Seungri Makes Meaningful Donation To Help People With Lou Gehrig’s Disease
BIGBANG’s Seungri has made a meaningful donation to help people with Lou Gehrig’s disease!
According to the Seungil Hope Foundation, Seungri recently made a donation of 100 million won (approximately $88,610). The foundation is currently accepting donations to help fund Korea’s first hospital dedicated to treating Lou Gehrig’s disease. Earlier this month, Seungri also celebrated his birthday by donating and volunteering.
Seungri stated, “The ice bucket challenge helped me learn more about Lou Gehrig’s disease. Making this donation to help build the hospital has been a very meaningful experience for me. I hope that more people will continue to send their support for people with Lou Gehrig’s disease, and I hope that the hospital will be built soon. I will always be supporting people with Lou Gehrig’s disease.”
WINNER’s Kang Seung Yoon, Seungri’s labelmate at YG Entertainment, also donated to the foundation recently. His donation will also be used to fund the cost of opening a new hospital.
Jinusean’s Sean, who heads the Seungil Hope Foundation, stated, “I am so proud and grateful to see my juniors giving back and being positive influences on society in their own ways. We are so grateful to receive such donations and we feel the warmth they have for people with Lou Gehrig’s disease and their families. We will continue to do our best to bring hope to people with the disease.”
