IU Makes Meaningful Donation In Honor Of Children’s Day
IU has made another heartwarming donation to help children in need.
On May 3, the Green Umbrella Children’s Foundation, a global non-profit organization supporting children’s welfare, revealed, “Ahead of Children’s Day, IU donated 100 million won (approximately $85,500) to support children raised by single parents or grandparents as well as underprivileged children from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.” Children’s Day is celebrated on May 5 in South Korea.
The organization continued, “In May, underprivileged children feel a relatively greater sense of deprivation. We hope that through the good influence of IU, a singer who has been secretly donating after continuously showing interest in children, donation culture will spread and help children in need to have a happy Children’s Day.”
IU has donated to the Green Umbrella Children’s Foundation since 2015 and previously sponsored 100 million won in support of children affected by the wildfire in Gangwon Province in April. Until now, IU has donated around 620 million won (approximately $530,000) through the Green Umbrella Children’s Foundation to help children in need.
