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.

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.
