One In An ARMY is proud to announce our second December 2023 flash donation campaign, V for Vida, in support of El Pozo de Vida in honour of Taehyung's birthday! Donations will assist El Pozo de Vida fight against human trafficking in Mexico and Central America. The donation period officially began at 6:00 pm KST on December 26th, 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 #VforVida. 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 El Pozo de Vida
From El Pozo de Vida's website:
"El Pozo de Vida is a NGO that fights against human trafficking in Mexico and Central America. We are committed to the prevention, intervention, and restoration of children, families and communities who are vulnerable to this crime, so that they can experience freedom and a fresh start in life.
We currently have 9 projects that allow us to have influence on a national level in Mexico, as well as to be references on a continental level; we are part of the Regional Coalition Against Human Trafficking and Migrant Smuggling in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Prevention: We need to address the problem from the root. Our prevention projects seek to combat human trafficking from its origin, working with different vulnerable populations and possible victims or perpetrators.
Intervention: Our intervention strategy focuses on areas with a high incidence of prostitution in Mexico City. We seek a rapprochement with women who find themselves in this situation, with the intention of creating bonds of trust with them, offering them a support network and even options to get out of their situation of exploitation.
Restoration: The damage caused by human trafficking is very profound, as it affects the person socially, psychologically, emotionally and spiritually. Therefore, we have different areas where rescued women can find safe support to heal, rediscover themselves, and find their potential, through a holistic care model."
