Reflection: Generosity that Outlives Tragedy⠀
By Jon Polk @jonjpolk
Response to tragedy often brings out the best in humanity...⠀
J.J. Watt spearheaded a fundraising campaign that raised over $37 million in a matter of weeks.⠀
But what happens when time inevitably passes and the images of destruction and devastation no longer dominate our screens? What is the limit of our generosity?⠀
Many people are eager to donate towards an immediate one-time need, but are resistant to living an on-going lifestyle of generosity.⠀

According to Song Joong-ki's fan club members, "Since 2011, Song Joon-ki has been supporting child patients with leukemia and cancer. So we wanted to support him as well." Song Joong-ki's fans added, "We hope our small devotion and support can give those children brighter and healthier future." The exact amount is 19,850,919 won, which stands for Song Joong-ki's birthday date and year―September 15, 1985.
Ki Aile's donation will be spent toward stem cell transplantation.
Meanwhile, Song Joong-ki's fan club 'Ki Aile' has done its very first donation last year on his birthday. Then it also gave a donation when Song Joong-ki has won the best actor award at 2016 KBS Drama Awards.
It was reported that Ki Aile's donations have been spent toward three children who were undergoing medical treatments, and today's donation fee will be used toward two more children, who are receiving transplantation surgery. (Credit = SBS funE) (SBS Star) .
