BTS’s Jin Becomes Member Of UNICEF’s Honors Club For His Generous Donations
It was recently revealed that BTS’s Jin has become a member of UNICEF’s Honors Club member. 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.”
Secretary General Lee Ki Chul of UNICEF Korea stated, “We express our gratitude to BTS’s Jin, who has become an inspiration to youth around the world with a message of hope, for his meaningful donations. We hope that his donations will help bring more attention to our work from younger generations.”
BTS and their agency Big Hit Entertainment have been working with UNICEF since November 2017 on their “LOVE MYSELF” campaign, which is a part of the organization’s #ENDViolence campaign that seeks to protect young people from violence. The group has been participating in a variety of activities to raise awareness and donate.
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.
