World superstars and Grammy-nominated BTS, coming from South Korea, are known for their musical flexibility, meaningful music and strong presence on stage. In addition to their thriving career and record 2020, they use their position for philanthropic work. Some of their donations are highlighted in the media. Over the past year, they have supported various institutions to help those affected by the pandemic, art galleries, Black Lives Matter, a Live Nation team and others. As they continue to use their platform for good work, their huge fan base, called ARMY, often takes their work forward through organized efforts. Although there are monthly charitable donations to raise funds for birthdays, the fandom selects institutions to help.
Rapper-composers-producers J-Hope and Suga celebrated their birthdays on February 18 and March 9, respectively. To raise money for the birthday, their Indian fan club (bangtan_india) organized a fundraiser “No Means No” to support the NGO Majlis and donate the money to support women who have experienced sexual harassment.
In honor of @BTS_twt Hoseok & Yoongi’s birthdays we raise funds for Majlis Manch. An NGO working for women who have been sexually harassed.
Let’s help these women of power in any way ????
