IU celebrated the anniversary of her debut by making a generous donation to a good cause!
As the star rang in the 13th anniversary of her debut on September 18, IU’s agency EDAM Entertainment revealed that she had come up with the idea of partnering with several of the brands she endorses to help those in need.
The agency announced, “Together with GNAL-N, New Balance, Banolim Pizza, BLACKYAK, Evezaly, and Jeju Samdasoo, for whom she is an official spokesmodel, IU has donated 850 million won [approximately $720,000] of products to help the underprivileged and specialized clinics.”
“As the anniversary of her debut approached, IU wanted to donate everyday necessities to those who needed them most,” continued EDAM Entertainment. “IU personally contacted each brand to suggest making a donation, and she contributed half of the cost for each donation.”
The donated goods included approximately 2,000 articles of clothing including winter coats for young children and teenagers in shelters, 300 bedding sets for single-mother households, and 30,000 water bottles for 20 different COVID-19 clinics in Seoul.
Congratulations to IU on the 13th anniversary of her debut!
