The Force is strong with BTS fans. Star Wars’ official Twitter account acknowledged this on Saturday (May 5) after the Korean act’s fans came out in major support of the franchise’s Force For Change UNICEF campaign last week.
While the Force For Change fundraiser began on May 3 to precede Star Wars Day and was expected to last through May 25, Star Wars’ pledge to donate up to $1 million USD was matched within two days thanks to the ferocious support from Star Wars and BTS fans alike.
“Thanks to fans from around the world & the BTS ARMY, we reached our maximum donation goal of $1M. Funds unlocked through this campaign will help UNICEF provide food packets to children suffering from malnutrition.”
