Ever since their debut in 2016, Blackpink have solidified their title as one of the most successful K-pop acts ever and as role models for their millions of fans worldwide.

The K-pop band, consisting of Rosé, Jisoo, Jennie and Lisa, have enchanted their fans with their catchy sound and power-packed performances, selling out stadiums effortlessly and winning awards internationally. They’ve also managed to become the faces of some of the biggest luxury fashion brands like Chanel, Dior, Celine, YSL, Bulgari and more, thanks to their influential power.

Blackpink, however, wields this influence with care as they choose to put their might behind some incredible causes, while giving them a platform as well as sizeable donations.

More recently, Jisoo announced that all the earnings from her solo YouTube channel, launched in January of 2023, will be donated to Save The Children, a UK-based non-profit that’s dedicated to making the world a better place for children globally.

The proceeds will go towards the Vietnam chapter of the NGO and will help create mangrove forests in Ca Mau, Vietnam.

Over the years, Blackpink has supported many causes, from raising awareness about climate change to providing disaster relief. Here are a few instances that prove the girl group has a heart of gold…

Helping Low-Income And Single-Parent Households

In December 2018, Blackpink donated the prize money from Elle Style Awards, a whopping 20 million KRW (INR 14 lakhs approx) to low-income and single-parent households in South Korea.

Disaster Relief For The Goseong Wildfire

In 2019, a wildfire incident devastated four cities in South Korea, causing widespread injuries and displacement. Blackpink donated 40 million KRW (INR 27 lakhs approx) to the Hope Bridge Association of the National Disaster Relief for the victims of the Goseong Wildfire.


Damage Repair Caused By Wildfire

The group continued to support rehabilitation and damage repair efforts due to wildfires in March 2022. Blackpink donated 500 million KRW (INR 3 crores) for the damage repair caused by the wildfires that happened in Gangwon and Gyeonbuk.

COVID-19 Relief

It’s no secret that the pandemic was devastating on a number of industries, including music. Blackpink partnered with a merchandising agency to release limited edition face masks in April 2020. The proceeds from the sale of these in-demand masks benefitted the Recording Academy relief fund which was established to help people in the music industry who were affected by the pandemic.

Their efforts to highlight environmental sustainability and climate change advocacy was praised by King Charles when the group joined South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol at the state banquet held in his honour at Buckingham Palace.
