BTS Army raise P45,000 for kind food delivery driver


The power of a positive comment cannot be underscored or undervalued.

Take the example of this simple but thankful delivery rider Foodpanda driver named Benjamin Baetiong posted a message on Facebook declaring full support to BTS fans excited over the McDo promo meal, some members of the ARMY who got wind of the message and wasted no time in giving back the love. 

The enormous support of the fans of the South Korean boy band BTS known as “Army” did not think twice to help and give a simple help to Baetiong.

The delivery rider posted a message in his Facebook account.

“Lakas ng BTS meal ngaun, Umaarangkada na.. kme mga Foodpanda rides.. masayang dedeliver sa inyo ang bts meal.. kya mga bts fans.. dyn.. gogogogo na order na kyo.” 

Baetiong is referring to the MacDonalds collaboration of the famous Sokor boyband, the former created a promo meal which they call the “BTS meal”

The P260 meal which contains 10 pieces of Chicken McNuggets and its limited edition sauces: Cajun and Sweet Chili. The meal also includes a medium cup of Coke, and medium fries.

One of the members of a BTS fan group called the Tea Squad was touched by the post. It was, after all, a refreshing expression of encouragement and positivity amid mockery and negativity from non-fans. The member shared the message to the rest of the team who quickly switched to do-gooder mode and immediately decided they needed to raise funds for driver Benjamin—even if they didn’t know the guy from Adam. 

A customer service representative and owner of the Twitter handle, @therealkittenwp. Their group was formed following a late night chat over Twitter space. From then on the conversations became a nightly ritual. Now the Tea Squad is 17-member strong.

“I’ve been a fan of BTS since 2016,” Kit tells us, “although I wasn’t really getting into conversations with other ARMYs. I guess what attracted me to BTS is the group’s passion and advocacy: to love ourselves and to be better every day.” It will be recalled that in 2017, BTS, in partnership with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), launched Love Myself, an anti-violence campaign.

The squad’s fundraiser accumulated P45,000 for Benjamin Baetiong. The 38-year old Benjamin tells ANCX he is still blown away by the show of support from the BTS fans. Also, it turns out he could use some extra cash. 


A gift for someone who really needs it


It just so happen that Baetiong is one of those badly affected by the pandemic, a former tricycle driver turned delivery rider when food panda launched its project extending help to those tricycle driver who lost there source of income because of the pandemic.

Also, his 73-year-old father suffered a stroke and the medical bills started piling up. Then came the day of the BTS meal launch.

“No’ng nakita nila [Tea Squad] post ko, natuwa po sila sa akin, at nag-PM [private message] sila na magpopondo daw sila,” Benjamin tells ANCX through Facebook messenger. “Sabi nila maagang pamasko raw po ’yon. Para po sa papa ko ‘to, pang gastos sa mga gamot at dito na rin sa bahay.”

“Super Salamat sa lahat ng BTS fans at ARMY,” he wrote to us on Facebook Messenger. “Super ty ty ty talaga.”

Kit of the Tea Squad meanwhile says the fundraising activity was a way for them to live by the advocacies and beliefs of their idols. “I think that people deserve to also know this side of the K-pop stan world,” Kit says. “That we are more than just fan girls. Also, I believe that if someone is really deserving of help, then we should help the best way we can and know how.”
