IU Gives Back To Communities In Need On Her Birthday
IU’s meaningful way to celebrate her milestones is really admirable!
Well-loved singer-actress IU recently celebrated her 29th birthday (in Korean reckoning) by making heartwarming donations to various initiatives.
Giving back to those in need
On May 17, IU’s agency, EDAM Entertainment, revealed that she had donated a total of 500 million won (approximately $440,870) to six foundations, including Korea Pediatric Cancer Foundation, a support group called YEOULDOL, Korean Unwed Mothers’ Families Association, Comprehensive Support Center for the Elderly Living Alone, The Purme Foundation, and the Child Welfare Association.
이십 대의 마지막 생일.
찬연했던 이십 대의
모든 순간들을 함께해준
유애나의 손을 잡고
따뜻한 마음을 나누며,
오늘을 기념하려 합니다.
그간 받아온 사랑을
부지런히 갚으며 살겠다던
어느 공연에서의 약속처럼
쉴 새 없이 달려온 아이유의 이십 대!
그녀의 생일을 유애나가 축하해 주세요💜 pic.twitter.com/npgD0GNsjX

On behalf of their artist, the agency said, “IU wanted to do something warm in the name of her fans, UAENA, on her last birthday in her 20s to repay the great love she has received consistently throughout her career.”
Her donation will support the surgery and treatment of children and youth suffering from rare diseases. Additionally, it will assist single-parent families, elderly living alone, and children who left institutional care.
Since debuting in 2008, IU has been steadily extending assistance to communities in need under her fan club’s name. In March, she celebrated the release of her fifth regular album by giving 100 million won to support single-parent families and hearing-impaired individuals.
Currently, IU is busily filming her upcoming movie titled Broker.
