Brief: Making kindness contagious in Seoul

Making kindness contagious in Seoul

A group of benevolent strangers is seeking donations for a pay-it-forward project in Korea. Seoul Giving Club is to hold a giveaway next month.
Organizers are inviting people to make financial donations to the club’s biggest pay-it-forward event to date. The movement aims to spread goodwill by performing small acts of kindness and encouraging the recipients to do the same for others.
A group of around 25 regular members is to hand out a variety of small gifts in Seoul’s Hongdae area from 5:30 p.m. on Aug. 6.
The kind-hearted volunteers are to play carnival wheel games with passers-by to give away items including tea, flowers, money and balloon animals.
People are also welcome to come along to help, with everyone taking part required to RSVP before the event and make a financial donation.
The group’s founder, Matt Alesevich said: “Words can’t describe the positive energy and atmosphere that surround our events. However, if you join us on Aug. 6th, I can promise you that you’ll thank yourself on Aug. 7th.”
