According to Rotary International, a non-profit charity group with over 1 million members across the globe, Jimin donated a hundred million won to the Gosung Rotary Club in July. Gosung is located in the South Gyeongsang Province of Korea, which is adjacent to Jimin’s hometown, Busan.

According to a report from Newsen, Jimin “went forward with his donation through his father without telling anyone.” His donation will go toward the Gosung Rotary Club’s vaccine fundraising campaign to permanently eradicate polio. Jimin’s donation only became known to the public when a fan discovered a banner hung by the Gosung Rotary Club to thank Jimin for his generous donation.

Jimin’s donation to help polio patients is especially meaningful as it was made right before World Polio Day, which is on October 24.


After news of Jimin’s donation was released, ARMY took to Twitter to applaud him for his generosity and humility.
