One In An ARMY is proud to announce our first December 2021 flash-donation campaign, Heal With Jin, in support of Project HEAL for Seokjin's birthday. Donations will aid Project HEAL in creating equity in the eating disorder treatment landscape by providing immediate help through their programs and bringing a long-term change in the system by breaking down systemic, healthcare and financial barriers. The donation period officially began at 11:00 pm KST on November 30th, 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 #HealWithJin. 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.
About the Organization
From Project HEAL's website:
"In the United States alone, there are 30 million Americans suffering with an eating disorder, and that only includes formal diagnoses. Despite this prevalence, only 20% receive treatment. The other 24 million cannot access the care they need due to insurmountable financial and insurance barriers, in addition to pervasive systemic oppression and bias. These barriers have serious consequences: eating disorders are the second most fatal mental illness (after Opioid Use Disorder), with one person dying as a direct result of an eating disorder every 52 minutes.
The stereotypes of who has an eating disorder – white, young, female, thin, affluent – are not accurate or representative, but they do exist for a reason: they are the subgroup that has been the focus of research and treatment marketing because they are the subgroup who is more likely to have the resources to access treatment. Research is clear that people of every ethnicity, age, gender, body shape and size, and socioeconomic status struggle with eating disorders, but our broken healthcare system prevents them from utilizing the resources required to achieve recovery.
Project HEAL’s goal is to change that system and, in the meantime, to provide life-saving support to people with eating disorders who the system fails."
