ARMY run projects in honour of BTS members’ birthdays, charities and causes after the members’ hearts, for the betterment of society and the world as a whole. They prove time and again that they’re not only superheroes but also literal angels.
On February 27, Suga donated 100 million Korean Won (approx. $83,000) in aid of his hometown Daegu to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and ‘restore damages’ within the community. This led to ARMY joining to donate to Hope Bridge Disaster Relief, this number increasing after the cancellation of the Seoul concerts from the Map Of The Soul world tour, fans donating their refunds to the cause.
As of March 2nd, it was confirmed that donations worth over 425 million won were made under the names related to ‘BTS’ and ‘ARMY’, this total not counting those made by ARMY under different names.
Fan accounts helped to spread the word, working with the charity to provide ways for international fans to donate within their means, including bank transfer and PayPal. More details on how to donate below.
To make your donation in the name of ARMY, send your donation directly from the PayPal website (https://paypal.com) to email@example.com and leave a note, “BTS ARMY.” This will allow the organization to track donations made by ARMY.
