Kim Seon Ho Makes Birthday Donation To Support Children Leaving The Foster Care System

Kim Seon Ho has celebrated his birthday with a heartwarming donation!

On May 8, the Korean Red Cross announced that Kim Seon Ho donated 100 million won (approximately $75,700) from the proceeds of his fan meeting to help young people preparing to leave the foster care system.

Kim Seon Ho decided to sponsor youth preparing to leave the foster care system through a fan vote and chose to donate to the Korean Red Cross after learning about their initiatives for these adolescents.

At Kim Seon Ho’s request, the Korean Red Cross will use his donation for a program to help young people preparing to leave the foster care system develop self-reliance. The Korean Red Cross provides young people who have been aged out of the foster care system with psychological stabilization programs and customized supplies to give them a foundation for self-reliance.

Kim Seon Ho said, “This donation was made by fans. Thank you to the fans who are always with me. I hope this [donation] will be of some help to young people who have to stand alone.”

Korean Red Cross chairman Shin Hee Young stated, “Every year, about 2,500 young people are aged out of the foster care system and have to stand alone in the world, and in the past 3 years, around 20 of these young people committed suicide due to social apathy. We hope that young people who are experiencing psychological and economical difficulties will be able to stand on their own as members of the social community through our residential and emotional support programs.”

Last year, Kim Seon Ho also made generous donations to victims of the Pohang typhoon and to the Korea Childhood Leukemia Foundation.
