On July 24, the Korean Red Cross revealed that Taeyeon had donated 100 million won (approximately $84,940) to the Korean Red Cross’s North Jeolla province office.
A source from the Korean Red Cross explained that Taeyeon had asked for the funds to be used to help support women, children, and adolescents in low-income households by providing hygiene products such as sanitary pads. The organization will use the donation to provide hygiene products to three schools.
Taeyeon stated, “I decided to make my donation because I’ve watched my mother help those in need and give hope to others through the Korean Red Cross. I hope I can provide warmth to female students who are having a difficult time and feel neglected.”
Through her donation, Taeyeon has now become the 132nd member of the Red Cross Honors Club (RCHC) in Korea, and is the first celebrity from North Jeolla province to do so. The RCHC celebrates those who have made significant donations to the organization to help those in need.
