Reading Gives Hope * Books Bring Sunshine
Nasa Pagbasa ang Pag-Asa * May Dalang Liwanag ang Mga Libro
Ing Pamamasa Babye Yang Pag-asa * Deng Libru Babye Lang Sala
Reading Gives Hope is a book donation drive inspired by BTS—especially Jung Hoseok aka J-Hope—and their positive message of diversity, inclusion, hope, and loving oneself.
In July 2020, three Pearl ARMYs, Zarah Gagatiga, Triccie Cantero, and Ellinor Ferriol met in a BTS Facebook group where they soon realized that they shared more than a love for Bangtan. Passionate advocates of books and reading, the three Titas mustered up the funds and mobilized their social networks to make this project a reality. After all, books are a wonderful way to share the message of the Bangtan Boys with others.
