One of the most popular soloists in the entertainment industry, IU is truly an angel in disguise. Aside from her amazing talent (although believing she has no skills), she also has a huge heart. 

Since making her debut in 2008, IU has been adamant in giving to those who are less fortunate, always doing her best in giving donations, and on her 13th year anniversary, IU once again showcased her charitable heart.

This was recently highlighted as IU has gone on to donate ₩850 million KRW (which is approximately $723,000 USD) worth of items to multiple organizations and charities. This was her way to celebrate her 13th anniversary of being active in the industry.

"IU, who is attached to the brands she usually uses, wanted to donate daily necessities to the right places to mark her debut anniversary. IU proposed the offer to each brand, and IU will also be personally contributing for half of the cost of the goods," EDAM Entertainment, IU's label, revealed.

As per a press release from IU's agency EDAM Entertainment, IU has been able to work with a lot of the companies that she advertises, thus she was able to donate a vast amount of items to a plethora of organizations and charities. 

As per the reports, IU's full donations contain the following:

-30,000 bottles of Jeju Samdasoo Water to health centers

-2,000 Banolim pizzas for children and teenagers in shelters

-2,000 coats and winter gear from BLACKYAK for children and teenagers in shelters for the coming winter season

-2,000 first aid kits from Kyungdong Pharmaceutical to health centers

IU is truly an idol, both in K-pop and to the masses.
