“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” Winston Churchill
No words have ever been truer than that quote. And it is true of BTS’ fans (ARMY) who have taken BTS’ message of loving yourself to heart, because loving others starts from loving oneself, and if you love yourself you will not want to see anyone suffer. Since the start of 2020, the world took an upside down turn with the onset of Covid 19, many lives have been lost and many more people are still suffering.
ARMY have always celebrated the members’ birthdays, anniversaries, milestones or achievements with individual gifts for the members like ad campaigns, fan art or music dedicated to them, but the one thing that ARMY is known for is the power that they have to give. They give generously in big and small ways that change people’s lives, after all one small gift given by many people becomes a bigger gift that blesses someone and changes their lives.
BTS V’s solo song “Singularity” just turned three on 6th May 2021. And what better way to celebrate than to not only sent sweet messages for the singer testifying to what the song has done to change their lives, ARMYs across the world came together in their various locations to do charity in honor of BTS’ V, donating under his name to various causes that will change humanity for the better.
This is not the first time that BTS V’s fans have donated to charity, for his first anniversary for the song “Sweet Night” fans from Kenya, Vietnam, India, Philippines to UAE among other locations also donated greatly to causes that were close to their hearts. John Cena who is a huge BTS fan said that if a celebrity can influence a person to go to their pockets and give, then that is the most important thing they would have done as a celebrity.
Here is a list of the various charities that V’s fanbases have donated to..
