IU with a Big Heart
To celebrate her 13th debut anniversary, IU took the opportunity to give a hand to those who are in need in society.
IU and the brands she represents, such as shoe brand New Balance, clothing brand Blackyak, and bottle water brand Jeju Samdasoo, have joined forces together and made an 850 million donation to medical staff and people who are in need.
All these collaborations were proposed by IU personally. Also, IU has contributed half of the donations.
“IU, who is closely linked to the brands she represents, wanted to donate necessities to the right place to make her debut anniversary,” EDAM Entertainment said.
For instance, New Balance is going to contribute 100 pairs of shoes to teenagers who are going to soon leave the protection provided by the government. Banolim Pizza is also going to donate roughly 2000 pizzas to kids and teenagers in the protection facilities. Blackyak will be donating 2000 different kid clothing and winter coats.
