IU commemorates 14th debut anniversary by donating 200 million won to charity

AKP STAFF

IU recently celebrated her 14-year debut anniversary by donating 200 million won (~$144,000 USD) to charity.

According to her agency EDAM Entertainment, the singer used the name 'IUaena' – a combination of her name and the name of her fan club 'Uaena' – to donate 100 million won (~$72,000 USD) to the Asan Social Welfare Foundation and 100 million won to the Seoul Metropolitan Child Welfare Association. The Asan Social Welfare Foundation donation will be used to pay for the cancer treatment for women and children with financial difficulties, while the Seoul Metropolitan Child Welfare Association donation will help support young people preparing for financial independence.

"With Uaena, who have given me miracles both big and small for the past 15 years, I am sharing warmth again this year with a heart full of gratitude. [...] I hope that our hearts will come together to bring another little miracle to someone,"
IU commented in a statement. "All the time I'd been able to spend with Uaena over the past 15 years was my 'golden hour.' Thank you, and I love you so much."

Meanwhile, IU is also commemorating her anniversary with her 'The Golden Hour' concerts, held at Seoul's Olympic Stadium on September 17 and 18 KST.
