Fans answered the call of Directioner Amy Flanagan (@1DFansGive), who created a fundraising page that said: "We are holding a charity drive for the London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard in honor of Harry Styles' 21st Birthday! Harry recorded a 'happy birthday' message to Switchboard earlier this year for their 40th birthday!"
She further explained LLGS' mission, which "provides a listening service for people to discuss their feelings in an impartial and non-judgmental way, as well as information and advice."
The campaign did amazingly well, pulling together over $14,000 for LLGS!
We think giving to charity in the guys' names is such a brilliant idea and, earlier this month, fans raised over $11,000 for British Asian Trust for Zayn Malik's birthday and in December, nearly $25,000 was donated to Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice for Louis Tomlinson's birthday.
Check out this great interview Sugarscape.com did with Amy, where she explains the fundraising success she's had: "I think 1D fans have a strong desire to support the guys in any way possible so they will do whatever it takes, especially if they believe the guys are on-board with the idea." Well done, Directioners!
