One In An ARMY is proud to announce our August 2021 flash-donation campaign, Break The Silence With JK, in support of Usikimye for Jungkook's birthday. Donations will aid Usikimye in their goal to curb gender-based violence in Kenya. The donation period officially began at 10:00 pm KST on August 27th, 2021. 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 #BreakTheSilenceWithJK. The minimum donation amount $1.00 USD.
How To Donate
Step 1) Visit One In An ARMY's custom ARMY donation page.
Step 2) Donate at least $1.00 USD.
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.
