GOT7's JayB joins 'Green Noble Club', donates 100M won to youth in need
The K-pop industry has always directed a positive influence on fans and as idols support various charities, fans too are directed to do good by supporting various charities of their own on behalf of their idols. Doing one such good deed himself is GOT7’s leader, Jay B who has been felicitated as he joined the ‘Green Noble Club’ for his generous contribution of 100 million won (85,046 USD) to a children’s organization under the Green Umbrella Children’s Foundation that works towards the support of disadvantaged groups in South Korea.
The Green Noble Club is a group of major donors that support the Green Umbrella Children's Foundation and with his donation, Jay B has become a model for many fans. This is not the first time Jay B has done something so selfless but in the year 2018, he was appointed as a publicity ambassador for the third ‘National Thank You Letter Contest’ hosted by the Green Umbrella Children's Foundation as he represented his group, GOT7 in the event.

Jay B donates 100 million won
Now that Jay B has more creative freedom after he joined H1GHR Music after his departure from JYP Entertainment, the idol has reported having sponsored the proceeds that he generated from the sale of his merch as well as profits from the photos he took himself. It is reported that the said donation amount accumulated from Jay B had exceeded 100 million won and all of it was directed towards the needy children of South Korea by the singer. Reports suggest that this generous donation from Jay B will be used to support families that are in crisis due to Covid-19 while also helping out children who are victims of abuse.

When Jay B was asked about the said donation, he mentioned that he was able to provide such an amount only because of the love he gathered all thanks to his fans. He also added, “It is more meaningful because fans are participating in the donation along with me rather than just myself donating alone.” Jay B as well as other members of GOT7 are currently focussing on their solo careers after the members of the boy group took a short hiatus from group activities.
Jay B himself released his first mini-album, ‘Somo: Fume’ back in September which sold out more than 100K copies and charted in 49 regions on debut. Five out of seven members of GOT7 (except Mark who is in LA and Jackson who is in China) met in a mini-reunion on November 28 where members JayB, Jinyoung, Bambam, and Yugyeom surprised the groups sunshine Youngjae as they dropped by his solo fan meeting to pay him a visit. This as well as other tiny revelations from members hinting at a group comeback in 2022 has Ahgases in unrest.
