BTS ARMYs are throwing a worldwide party for their Golden Maknae, Jeon Jungkook.
The youngest member of BTS celebrates his 24th birthday on September 1 (Wednesday) and fans across the globe have been prepping over the past few days by going big with gifts through donation drives, animal adoptions, massive LED billboards, and so much more. Of course, these gestures aren't requests from Jungkook, but rather are ways fans celebrate his warm heart and generosity by giving back to others.

Check out some of the projects—from bus stop designs, donation efforts for kids in need, to animal adoptions—set up by ARMYs all around the world:
There's no better place than in front of the HYBE building in Seoul, Korea to show love for Jungkook. Buses and bus shelters in the area have the multi-talented singer's face plastered on them, giving fans a special spark of happiness this week.

Instead of booking billboard space along EDSA (considering the pandemic and all), Filipino fans pitched in for special ads to announce Jungkook's birthday via TikTok.
