Group Big Bang is taking a big step in helping out children all over the world through UNICEF.
Big Bang revealed that part of the profit they are receiving from the world tour that has been held since March until coming December will be put into UNICEF.
On June 14, YG Entertainment's Yang Min Suk and the head of the Korea secretary general of UNICEF met and signed an agreement that states some of the profits of 'Big Bang Alive Tour 2012' will be donated to UNICEF.
The donations from Big Bang's tour will be used for vaccinations. It’s estimated that more than 600,000 children will be receiving measles vaccinations with the donations given from Big Bang. It could be basically said that one ticket sold can save one child in Africa as each ticket sale will vaccinate a child.
In addition a special limited collaboration gifts will be sold in partnership between UNICEF and YG Entertainment at Big Bang’s concert. The profits from the gifts will also be donated to UNICEF.
Big Bang's leader G-dragon said, "We wanted to share the love that receive to all around the world, and that's why we decided to support UNICEF. The donations will be used for vaccinations for children, and we really hope that the vaccinations will help the children stay healthy and away from diseases."
