Korean-American actor Daniel Henney has donated a total of 200 million won ($178,000) to the Community Chest of Korea. 

His donation exceeds the 100 million won needed to qualify to become a member of the Honor Society of the charity organization. 

The Community Chest said Henney’s contributions will be delivered to the Purme Foundation, Seungil Hope Foundation, Pearl S. Buck Foundation and Plan Korea to help people in need.

Henney debuted as an actor in 2005 on the TV series “My Lovely Sam Soon.” He donated to fire victims, disabled children rehabilitation facilities and multiple nongovernmental organizations last year.
