One In An ARMY is proud to announce the March 2020 campaign in cooperation with BTSxMidAtl to support Key Changes for Yoongi's birthday! The donation period officially began at 10:00 pm KST on March 1st, 2020. Donations will aid Key Changes provide music industry-focused mental health recovery services in hospitals and the community for musicians, song writers, lyricists, producers, vocalists and MC’s. Everything listed in steps 3-5 under our individual giving instructions is optional, but extremely helpful for us to track donation amounts as we have no other way to see how much ARMY has donated (see our FAQ for a full explanation). Our hashtag for the month is #ChangeWithYoongi and the bonus mission hashtag is #SpoonfulOfSuga. The minimum donation amount $2.00 USD.
For the 2019/2020 birthday season, One In An ARMY is also running #WePurpleEarth: a special, 48-hour flash donation project for all seven members. Find out more about We Purple Earth here.

With A Friend
If you can't afford the minimum donation amount, pair up with an ARMY friend from your country to meet the minimum donation amount and submit your form! Don't forget to check out our March Bonus Mission #SpoonfulOfSuga!
With A Fanbase
If you can’t find an ARMY friend to donate with, you can try reaching out to a local fanbase to see if they’re willing to run a collection pool for your region/country.
Please be advised that One In An ARMY has no way to monitor donations collected through fanbases; donors do so at their own risk. We recommend you only reach out to a base you trust and ask them to provide you with a screenshot that verifies they donated to the campaign. Please contact us if you made a donation through a fanbase and you have reason to believe the money was not donated to the non-profit.
If you don’t want to take the risk of donating to a third-party, save your money for a future campaign and check out the ways you can get involved without donating by visiting our Bonus Missions page or participating in our March Bonus Mission #SpoonfulOfSuga!

The service was developed in response to concerns from mental health professionals about a lack of services relevant to “hard to reach” patients who may be unresponsive to conventional therapies, non-compliant with medication or experiencing difficulties engaging with other activities or services.
Our intake is through referrals from mental health services. We can also consider self-referrals. Throughout engagement we work closely with multi-disciplinary health and social care teams including nursing staff, occupational therapists, social workers, psychologists and psychiatrists."
