IU Makes Heartwarming Donation For The Holidays
IU made another generous donation to close out 2021!
On December 24, it was revealed that IU had donated 200 million won (about $168,560) to ChildFund Korea.
Her agency, EDAM Entertainment, confirmed, “IU donated 100 million won [about $84,280] each to cancer patients and children from low-income families.”
Part of the donation will be used by ChildFund Korea on behalf of low-income families to cover heating bills and acquire warm clothes for the winter. It will also go toward the support of scholarships for children and youth being raised by their grandparents. The other part of the donation will be used by Seoul ASAN Hospital to pay for the treatment and operation of women and children with cancer.
IU said, “This is a difficult time when everyone is feeling exhausted, but I wanted to share feelings of warmth and help with those who needed it. I hope that everyone can spend a warm winter without a single neighbor being left out.”
IU regularly makes donations to charities, particularly to support people in economic difficulties. For her 13th anniversary this past September, she teamed up with the various brands she models for to make a donation.
IU is scheduled to release the new album “Pieces” on December 29.
