On November 30, 2010, Lee Seung Gi, together with the Deputy Minister for Korea’s Ministry of Strategy and Finance and about 120 volunteers from the Sharing Happiness Volunteers Corps participated in ‘sharing love’s coal and early Christmas community service’ in the Nowon-Gu area of Seoul.
With the onset of a cold December in mind and as a gift of love for the start of this Christmas season, approximately 6,000 coal blocks were personally delivered during this community service project so that low-income families and senior citizens living on their own in the local area could experience a warm winter.
Despite the recent and sudden cold temperatures, Lee Seung Gi and the community service volunteers personally delivered the coals with utmost sincerity via cart, back carriers, and hand. In addition, volunteers dressed in Santa Claus costumes delivered blankets and rice to local residents and spread Christmas cheer.
Formalized in 2008 with the goal of bringing health, laughter, and hope to needy and less fortunate neighborhoods and communities, the Sharing Happiness Volunteer Corps is a national volunteer organization consisting of more than 2,000 persons.
Following current volunteer Kim Mi Hwa and film actress Park Bo Young, Lee Seung Gi is the third appointee to head the Sharing Happiness Volunteer Corps. This past May, he was formally inducted as the honorary director and also participated in a community service project assisting the elderly and children from low-income, single parent homes.
Following the completion of today’s community service activity, Lee Seung Gi said, “As the director of the the Sharing Happiness Volunteer Corps during the past year, I had the opportunity to personally sense the meaning and joy of sharing with others. Through this community service project, I realized that there are still many people in our surrounding areas that need a helping hand, and I plan to continue participating in various community service activities so that sharing with others can be advanced and spread throughout society as a whole.”
Man. Lee Seung Gi is truly a man with a big heart. ^_____^
