Community Chest of Korea, a network of locally governed charity organization, has revealed actress Moon Geun-young as the anonymous donor who has given 850 million won (roughly $620,000) over the past six years. In marking the 10th anniversary of its founding, Community Chest of Korea had released Wednesday the names of top donors in the last decade. It listed a 20-something actress as the top individual donor, generating speculations about who she was.
Community Chest of Korea has decided to disclose the identity of its greatest donor, because some people were giving credit to other actresses and the charity group wanted the facts straightened out.
Moon has been widely known for her philanthropic works, such as offering financial assistance to build a library and a scholarship fund and treat young cancer patients. Besides monetary donations, she has taken time out of her busy schedule to visit children in hospitals on many occasions. Those immediately following Moon on the list of top individual donors are former soccer star Hong Myung-bo and former Kookmin Bank chief Kim Jung-tae.

It’s really generous of her to give such a great donation, and to do it anonymously as well… even though her name eventually got out. XD;
