Free Zia is giving back even after suffering from massive condemnation following her fake designer products issues.
Free Zia has been a well-known influencer online for years, but she became more famous after appearing on Netflix’s Single’s Inferno. Unfortunately, her luck did not last that long as viewers noticed she had been wearing imitations of branded products on the show and her social media accounts.
Viewers first noticed the issue when she wore a knit Chanel shirt BLACKPINK Jennie once wore. Internet users noticed that those clothes were different, and there is no way the BLACKPINK member would wear a fake Chanel item since she is a global ambassador of the brand.
The YouTuber has since lied low and kept herself out of the limelight. But months after the incident occurred, she returned to make a heartfelt move.
Free Zia Makes Massive Donation
The Korean Red Cross, as reported by AllKpop, revealed that the YouTuber offered a generous donation to the victims of forest fires in Gangwon and Gyeongsangbuk.
The organization said they received $16,195 from the Single’s Inferno contestant, and she reportedly asked them to use the amount to support the emergency relief in the aforesaid areas.
"We thank Song Ji Ah for her warm generosity, and we look forward to her various future activities where she can spread good influence in our society,” the Korean Red Cross went on.

Free Zia Helped People After Releasing Apology Video
Free Zia’s new update came after the YouTuber shared an apology video through her YouTube channel and addressed the buzz about her personal life with her family members.
“I acknowledge the use of counterfeit products, which has been controversial recently, and I admit that everything is my fault,” she said. She added that she bought the fake items since they were pretty and people loved her because of the products.
