One In An ARMY is proud to announce our February 2023 flash donation campaign, Rising With Hope, in support of Darkness RISING in honour of Hoseok's birthday! Donations will assist Darkness RISING in improving the health and wellness of the Black community, and erasing the stigma surrounding mental health issues by raising awareness and engaging the community via resources, events and services. The donation period officially began at 11:00 pm KST on February 13th, 2023. 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 campaign is #RisingWithHope. 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.
Step 5) Quote-tweet our pinned tweet or write your own tweet about the campaign using #RisingWithHope. Don't forget to check out the non-monetary Bonus Mission TBA!
