At this event, Park Jin-young said, "I also have two daughters, ages 3 and 4. As a father raising children, it is heartbreaking to think that it must be difficult for so many children to be sick, and how burdensome it must be to not have enough medical expenses. “With the hope that we can become one and provide strength to protect the hearts of children and their parents, we decided to deliver the funds to the hospital so that they can be used directly for children in need of medical treatment.” Reason for donation revealed.

Among them, the 'EDM Treatment Cost Support Project', which supports treatment costs for children with incurable diseases who are experiencing financial difficulties, the 'EDM Wish Fulfillment Project', a project that encourages hope by providing emotional support to children with incurable diseases, and the 'Love Earth', an eco-friendly project that creates a healthier place to live.
