Originally summarized on Twitter.
The theme ARMY chose for Taehyung's birthday was supporting special needs.
LN4 Hand Project is an organization that works to provide free prosthetic hands to anyone in need anywhere in the world. An upper limb prostheses can determine whether or not an individual is able to be employed, contribute to household duties, or provide an increased sense of independence. The LN4 hand can help restore functionality in people who suffer from diseases requiring amputation or from limbs lost in traumatic incidents.
In 5 days, 2588 ARMY in 81 countries raised $54,642.77! That's enough to produce and distribute 1000 LN4 prosthetic hands!
As always, our friends at LN4 Hand Project have sent a letter to Taehyung and Big Hit Entertainment to let them know about the good work ARMY has done.
LN4 Hand Project was one of the most enthusiastic organizations we've ever worked with. In fact, they recorded not one, not two, not three, not four, but five different videos expressing their thanks to ARMY and Taehyung for inspiring fans to give back. You can read all their tweets about ARMY and the flash fundraiser here.
Well done on another month of good ARMY! Thanks for celebrating Taehyung's birthday with us by supporting LN4 Hand Project and by brightening the day people around the world. We purple you!
