One Direction is very lucky to have Directioners with them all throughout their career. As Harry Styles’s 21st birthday is nearing, Directioners took the initiative to raise money in support of a charity close to Styles’ heart.
According to Yahoo! UK, Amy Flanagan, one of the hardcore Directioners, organized a fundraising event for the London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard in honor of Styles’ 21st birthday.
Flanagan went on to explain in the event’s page about their chosen charity. She said that the London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard is the oldest gay and lesbian help line in the UK that helps provide an impartial listening service for people who are going through emotional difficulties. She went on and said that the birthday boy even recorded a birthday greeting for Switchboard on their 40th birthday.
Directioners really know how close Switchboard is to Styles’ heart. Donations were raised through Virgin Money Giving, a nonprofit organization, which helps process and pass donations to eligible donors.
Flanagan also mentioned about a Tumblr user named “Createdoutofnecessity,” who has sparked campaign of donating $100 each month for every person that will write, “Loose Change for Harry” in their posts.
Flanagan has previously raised $25,000 for Doncaster’s Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice in honor of Louis Tomlinson’s birthday in December 2014 and over $10,000 for Zayn Malik’s birthday.
In light of Harry Styles’ nearing birthday, Pop Crush reported that Taylor Swift got Styles a memorable birthday present. According to the report, Swift personally went to approach the Australian band The Temper Trap to get a handwritten note of the chorus of the band’s hit single, “Sweet Disposition.” These were the same lyrics that Styles tattooed on his arm. Swift reportedly wanted to prove to Styles that she was right that he had the wrong lyrics inked on his arm. According to the outlet, Styles was so embarrassed to have the wrong lyrics inked on his arm when Swift showed him her birthday present.
