On Thursday (May 16), non-profit organisation Habitat For Humanity Korea announced that Blackpink member Jennie donated 100 million won (US$73,600) to support a project for Korean youths in the name of Blinks, the fandom of Blackpink.

A sponsorship certificate obtained by South Korean news outlet Newsen showed that the donation would be used for the construction of Rodemnamu International Alternative School.

The certificate reads: “We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Jennie and Blinks for their valuable contribution. Habitat Korea will remember the warm hearts of our sponsors for a long time.”

Located in the city of Anseong in South Korea’s Gyeonggi province, Rodemnamu International Alternative School will house and educate Koryoin (ethnic Koreans from post-Soviet states) teenagers.

Jennie is one of the four members of K-pop girl group Blackpink, alongside Jisoo, Rose and Lisa. In December 2023, the four women renewed their contracts with YG Entertainment for group activities. However, they did not renew a contract for individual activities. 

That same month, Jennie established her own agency Odd Atelier to manage her solo activities. Since then, Jennie has appeared in the variety show Apartment 404 and was a guest artiste on Zico’s hit song Spot!.
