Originally summarized on Twitter.
One In An ARMY is extremely proud to announce the results of our March 2022 flash campaign, Small Steps With Yoongi, benefiting Small Projects Istanbul in honour of Yoongi's birthday!
Small Projects Istanbul is dedicated to helping those displaced by the conflict in the MENA region rebuild their lives, through supporting community development, education, and empowerment with a focus on women and youth. Their Community Center is designed to be a place of safety and belonging; within this space, they are committed to working with the community to ensure the best opportunities to reach their full potential in Istanbul and beyond. Within the Community Center, they strive to provide livelihood opportunities through the establishment of a Women’s Social Enterprise, enabling vocational development, income generation, and economic integration.
For this campaign 495 ARMY raised $13,197! This helped Small Projects Istanbul distribute stationary, basic necessities, hygiene kits, and toys, as well as fund cultural events and education!
Our friends at Women's Microfinance Initiative have sent a letter to BTS and Big Hit to let them know about how much ARMY helped this month.
In addition to helping Small Projects Istanbul, ARMY also spread positivity to their friends and family. The bonus mission, High Five From ARMY, encouraged ARMY to trace their hands and write positive messages on them to friends and family.
Here are a few of the high fives that were created!
Thank you ARMY for helping Small Projects Istanbul by donating and sharing the campaign, and thank you to everyone who participated in High Five From ARMY. You made Yoongi's birthday truly special!
