One In An ARMY is proud to announce the 2020 flash fundraiser in cooperation to support Jiyan Foundation for Jungkook's birthday! The donation period officially began at 2:00 am KST on August 28th, 2020. Donations will aid Jiyan Foundation support survivors of violence, with physical rehabilitation, mental well-being, and social integration programs, in Iraq. 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 #JiyanWithJK and the bonus mission hashtag is TBA. The minimum donation amount €1.00.
One In An ARMY is doing the Birthday fundraisers a little different this year.
First of all, they will only last 5 days. That's right, the flash fundraisers are back! That means to campaign starts 5 days before the member's birthday and will end on the day of their birthday, as a nice present for our favorite 7 Koreans.
During the birthday months there will be no regular monthly campaigns, and instead we'll play a long running birthday themed game, a bonus mission if you will. You can find out more about it under Bonus Missions once it launches.
How To Donate
Step 2) Donate €1.00 EURO or more (the minimum is €5.00 euro on the Jiyan Foundation's donation page) using credit, debit, or PayPal. You can also use Klarna on the Jiyan Foundation's donation page.
Step 3) Take a screenshot of your donation watermark with your twitter @. Please make sure donation amount is VISIBLE but strike out any personal information (see example screenshot below).
Step 4) Submit this form. The form is especially important now. Due to COVID-19 many non-profits are overwhelmed and might not be able to track donations for us like they normally do.
