This it the first time IU becoming CHOEAEDOL’s Charity Fairy. Congratulation.
Thank you, IU
On her birthday, IU donated 500 million won to the underprivileged.
According to IU’s agency EDAM Entertainment, IU has donated 500 million won to multiple charities including Korea Pediatric Cancer Foundation, Korea Unwed Mothers Families Association, Comprehensive Support Center for the Elderly Living Alone, The Purme Foundation, Association of Child Welfare, and Yeouldol, an association focusing on helping children with rare diseases.
“To repay the great love she has received throughout her twenties, IU would like to do something warm in the name of IU and Uaena on her last birthday in her last birthday in her twenties,” EDAM said.
IU, since her debut, has always donated to different charities on anniversaries in the name of her and Uaena, her fandom. For instance, IU donated 100 million won to single-parent adolescent families and the deaf and hard of hearing community last March during her previous comeback. This time, the 500 million won would be used to help to pay the treatment cost of children and teenagers with rare disease, supporting the livelihood of single-parent families and elders who live alone, and children who left the official support system.
We are also very happy to be able to donate in the name of IU, and we would like to thank all the Uaenas who have voted on IU’s birthday.
