JYP Entertainment (hereafter, JYPE) has established a partnership with Make-A-Wish Korea and launched an initiative named “EDM (Every Dream Matters!)” as the company’s featured CSR program. Through this initiative, JYPE supports the wish-granting of children with critical illnesses.
Children who realised their wish through Make-A-Wish did not give up their dream and keep fighting their illness.
To commemorate the 40th anniversary of Make-A-Wish, the Korea Chapter launched the campaign named ‘#고마워요나의별’ (“Thank you my star”) to show appreciation towards all supporters and to show the power of wish-granting.
One of JYPE’s artists ? GOT7 ? participated in this campaign. GOT7 supported a child’s dream through the <KEEP SPINNING, KEEP DREAMING with GOT7> project and joined the Global Hope campaign to cheer up children with critical illnesses who are waiting to realise their dreams.
In 2019, during the GOT7 KEEP SPINNING World Tour in Melbourne, Australia, a girl named Irena realised her wish: meeting GOT7.
Irena said since day 1 of becoming an Ahgase (GOT7’s fanclub) that GOT7 has brought her so much warmth and strength and GOT7’s positivity and smiles gave her motivation during her difficult times.
When she met GOT7, she was not able to say everything she wanted because she was overwhelmed with excitement and emotion. However, she wanted to thank GOT7 for everything they gave her: happiness, excitement, hope, proudness, motivation and so much more.
Irena tagged GOT7 on Instagram to join the ‘#고마워요나의별’ (“Thank you my star”) campaign by thanking them for presenting her this beautiful day with her hand-written letter.
After she uploaded her letter to GOT7, JB from GOT7 answered to Irena, saying that it was glad that GOT7 could be a hope and could give energy to someone. Also, GOT7 will do their best to cheer Irena and Ahgase.
The #고마워요나의별 (“Thank you my star”) campaign JB joined donates 10,000KRW for each post and the donation will go to Make-A-Wish for children who are fighting against their diseases.
If you are not tagged, you can join this campaign with a video, a photo, or why not a handwritten letter.
Why don’t we all send a ‘thank you’ message to a person that we cherish and send hope to children with critical illnesses?
The more heartful mind gather, the more hope goes to children who are fighting against their disease.
