On September 9, Greenpeace’s Seoul office announced that Changmin made a donation of 70 million won to aid the restoration efforts for the Amazon Forest, as well as helping the assessment of its environmental impact on the world. Changmin’s donation was from a part of the proceeds made during the RE:MAX project; his collaboration with clothing brand Represent.

Chae Jung Ah, the director of donations for Greenpeace Seoul, thanked the singer for his generous donation. The Amazon Forest has been suffering from large-scale fires for more than a month, and the damage to the forest and the area around it is serious,” he notes. “This donation is a great help to remedy the Amazon’s restoration and improve its protection.”

Despite this, the director also stressed the importance of everyone’s involvement in the restoration efforts for the Amazon Forest. “This wildfire is not just Brazil’s problem,” Director Chae stresses. “The carbon emissions from the Amazon fires can have a devastating effect on our climate, and this may lead to global damage.”
