Why Mangopost?

Mango means ‘mango hada’ in Korean language. It is a proverb where it means to ‘release all the way on purpose’, like releasing a kite to the wind to see where it goes. While it could be seen in a negative light, there’s a positive light to it. As humans are bound to meet their end, like the word ‘korean word of mango’, it is an encouragement to let go of their money back to the society to help it improve.

Mango means ‘trade’ in English language. Mango is an essential food for the underprivileged people in Asian and African countries. It has been declared as a food rather than a fruit to these countries as it has enough nutrients to feed a child as a meal for a day. Hence, when it is brought and given to a child, it is seen as a symbol as a charity food.

한국에서 ‘망고하다’ 라는 말은 연의 줄이 다 했을 때 그것을 끊어서 보내준다는 뜻으로, 무언가를 미련없이 보내주는 것입니다. 모든 것에는 끝이 있는 법이지요. 그렇기 때문에 사람들은 자신의 것을 사회에 환원하고, 사회가 더욱 발전할 수 있도록 돕습니다.

중국에서는 사람들이 명절 때 서로에게 망고를 선물합니다. 이는 서로에 대한 격식 있는 감사의 표시입니다. 또, 베트남 전통 문화에서 망고는 가족 간의 조화, 물질적인 성공을 상징합니다.
