K-pop singer-actress Suzy Bae, better known simply as Suzy, has donated 100 million won (US$90,000) to help children suffering from incurable illnesses, as part of her forthcoming 25th birthday celebrations.
“Suzy handed the donation over this year,” Life Share Association, an organ donation campaign group, said on Saturday.
“We thank Suzy for taking the lead in creating a bright and healthy society.”
The money will be used to treat children with cancer and leukaemia.
It is not the first time the star has been involved in philanthropy. She recently donated 20 million won to support single mothers.
Suzy, 24, who will turn 25 next October 10, made her debut in 2010 as a member of now-disbanded idol girl group Miss A and has also become a soloist and actress.
She will star in the forthcoming television series Vagabond, with singer-actor Lee Seung-gi.
