BTS Jungkook’s unknowing act of kindness has led to the manufacturers of “Kombucha” Tea to pay it foward with their own act of kindness towards the vulnerable in society. Jungkook’s economic effect has been tangible and it has had a very positive effect on businesses. The Milal Welfare Foundation (Chairman Jeong-Gil Hong) announced on the 26th (Fri) that it has received donations worth 50 million won from Teazen Co., Ltd
TEAZEN said that after the scene of BTS Jungkook drinking kombucha through V Live, sales increased by more than 500%, and decided to donate to return the profits obtained from this to society.
In particular, as the coronavirus infection (Corona 19) is prolonged, they decided to knock on the door of Giving Plus, the Milal Welfare Foundation, to help the vulnerable who are suffering from employment insecurity, as an after effect of the pandemic.
Mr. Jong-Tae Kim, CEO of TEAZEN, said,
“Through this donation, we are happy to conserve resources and improve the self-reliance environment for marginalized neighbors. I want to.”
TEAZEN posted on their Instagram stories about the donation and thanked Jungkook by tagging the post “Thank you #soldoutking” with a purple heart
Also the donations are said to be used to establish a new store for Giving Plus to create a space for the vulnerable.
TEAZEN’s donations will be sold through Giving Plus, the Milal Welfare Foundation, and the proceeds from the sales will be used to hire disabled employees in the store and support the livelihoods of vulnerable communities. In addition, TEAZEN’s donations will be used to establish a new store for Giving Plus to create a space for the vulnerable.
Kim In-jong, head of the Milal Welfare Foundation, Giving Plus Headquarters, said,
“I am deeply grateful for being a great hope for those who are waiting for the opportunity to work.”
TEAZEN has consistently practiced sharing with the underprivileged by sponsoring food and gift certificates to child welfare facilities for the last 8 years. Source
