Art is something that ARMY easily associates with Joon, given his extensive interest in artworks and their impact. So, this year, ARMY decided to support the cause of art and culture and we started looking out for a grassroots organization that is making a positive impact on people through the medium. We are elated to celebrate Namjoon’s birthday with #DrawWithRM, a 7-day flash fundraiser supporting Anouk Foundation.About Anouk FoundationAnouk Foundation is a Geneva-based non-profit that uses the medium of therapeutic murals to transform environments in hospitals and socio-medical institutions.
