‘Morning Yard’ Lee Kwang-gi revealed the reason why he donated his son’s death insurance money to Haiti.
Actress and writer Lee Kwang-gi appeared in the ‘Tuesday Invitational’ of KBS1’s ‘Morning Yard’, which aired on the 16th.
Lee Kwang-gi published the book ‘Tears I shed became flowers’. Lee Gwang-gi’s son passed away in 2009 from the flu.
Lee Kwang-gi donated insurance money to Haiti after his son’s death. Regarding this, he said, “I got my child’s insurance money in my bankbook, but every day I cried. At that time, I tried to overcome it with the power of religion, but it was sad when I turned back. Insurance money made it sadder. Then the Haiti earthquake broke out. It was so hard to see the children suffering. “If this insurance money goes to the children a little, it is sad for me, but I wanted to be a joy and a gift for those children.”
Also, Lee Kwang-gi said, “I didn’t know how to donate back then. Jung Ae-ri prayed for us. When I called her, she introduced World Vision as an ambassador and made a donation. When World Vision releases a press release on insurance benefits, it is difficult to raise funds in Haiti right now, but it is said that these insurance benefits can be ten, hundred or thousand. Although my son Seok-gyu is not by my side, I gave permission because a small seed turned into seed money so that it could be fruit to someone.”
