Current Campaign

One In An ARMY is proud to announce the April 2020 campaign Our Remedy Is ARMY to support COVID-19 relief efforts. This month's project follows a different format than usual. We reached out to non-profits we worked with on previous campaigns and found that many of them are in dire need of donations. Groups that were already in precarious situations are extremely vulnerable to contracting COVID-19 and are more likely to be hit harder with the economic fallout. Additionally, since One In An ARMY predominantly works with smaller non-profits, these organizations are facing staffing and supply shortages. These organizations play a vital role in keeping people and animals safe and healthy, physically and mentally. It is crucial to keep these organizations operating through the pandemic.

We ask that ARMY donate only if they're able, as we realize that many ARMY are also impacted physically and/or financially by COVID-19. Please make sure you're taking care of yourselves during this crisis. We have compiled a thread of non-profits that are particularly in need of donations. You can also read the summary of our previous campaigns with those organizations in our archive. The list of non-profits (and the original date we're highlighting is:

Recently, BTS appeared on The Late Late Show's special broadcast of Home Fest. The two fundraisers promoted on the show are CDC Foundation and Feed The Children.

 

If ARMY would like to donate in the name of BTS ARMY to the CDC Foundation, we now have a custom donation page! If you donate to the CDC Foundation or Feed The Children, we ask that you please follow the steps as outlined on Twitter which include filling out this form.

Our hashtag for the month is #OurRemedyIsARMY. The minimum donation amount varies by organization. Please ensure your donation meets their minimum amount. If you donate less than the minimum it means the organization would be losing money in fees to process your donation.

how to donate

Our Impact

If you are interested in learning more about the organizations, you can find links to their websites below. Each organization has also given us a rough summary of what our donations will be funding during the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Medical Teams International: Preventing the spread of COVID-19 and supporting local health systems in responding to it by promoting good hygiene, shipping personal protective equipment (PPE) to hospitals and repurposing their Mobile Dental Vans in the US to serve as drive-thru screening sites.

  • Thirst Relief: To provide a safe way to wash their hands and help stop the spread of sickness in the homes of 120 at risk children that attend a school in Kampala, Uganda. They have no clean water at home, so they can't wash their hands and maintain hygiene, which is extremely important in the current situation.

  • Korean Kids and Orphanage Outreach Mission: The funds will help them maintain the basic necessities of the children in their care. They have been placed on mandatory quarantine by the government for the last 7 weeks, and KKOOM is concerned about the emotional well-being of the children (ranging from 1 1/2 to 19 years old).

  • MindLeaps: Due to the pandemic, dance classes have been put on hold. MindLeaps continues to provide life-saving stipends to their refugee dance teachers. In addition, they are coming up with a plan to continue to provide daily meals to their students at the Rwanda Center which, for many of them, is the only meal they receive daily.

  • Cuatro Por Venezuela: Help Venezuela to fight this very contagious disease by funding protective supplies for health workers, hand sanitizer, and soap. The health crisis in Venezuela has been ongoing since 2016 and they aren't prepared to deal with COVID-19. The shortage of medicine and medical supplies is devastating. They also lack access to clean water and basic hygiene products.

  • Purple Community Fund: COVID-19 has resulted in a 24/7 lock-down, with many families unable to work and earn money to buy food or medicine. PCF will provide people in the communities they serve with much needed life-saving supplies.

  • Children's Healing Art Project: CHAP staff are assembling CHAP art packs of healing art supplies for sick children with a note of encouragement to drop off at area hospitals and distributed by nurses. They are also working on how-to videos of creative art projects for children to do at home, as well as planning to use video conferencing with their Art Club children to interact and maintain their community.

  • Playing For Change Foundation: Your funds will help PFCF take the necessary measures to care for the population and health professionals in Argentina by purchasing supplies that allow the construction of protective masks and providing hygiene items

  • 100cameras: To help the situation in their unique way, 100cameras is creating an online resource to meet youth through remote learning. Inspired by their exceptional curriculum, the activities are specifically written to support children in their individual situations, be it challenges of isolation, or fear and anxiety in the current crisis. The experience will provide a new tool to learn how to express these feelings through photography and feel connected to others while also having fun.
