Louis Tomlinson is an incredible guy. We recently talked about how one of the reasons we stan him is because of his charitable heart. He’s so inspiring that his fans proudly follow in his footsteps. In honor of his 28th birthday fans (self-dubbed Louies) have been hard at work fundraising for Tommo’s birthday.
Louis turns the big 28 today and three fundraisers have been held in honor of the Doncaster darling, all raising some great funds for worthy charities. Here’s some info about them and how you can get involved.
Stand Up To Cancer
First off we have the Stand Up To Cancer fundraiser held by 1D Fans Give. The group of fans have been fundraising for each One Direction member’s birthdays for years now and despite their current hiatus, they still work hard all year round to honor the boys by doing something good.
Stand Up To Cancer fundraises for research to beat cancer in the UK, accelerating the progress in cancer research as part of Cancer Research UK.
As well as the JustGiving fundraiser where you can directly donate, they also sell some pretty cool merch which you can rock and the proceeds go to the charity.
The Eden Dora Trust
Another fundraiser taking place for Louis this year is for The Eden Dora Trust which is a charity Louis is a patron for. The charity is in honor of Eden Dora and fundraises for children with Encephalitis (inflammation or swelling of the brain, which usually results in an Acquired Brain Injury which can cause long term physical and cognitive problems). The fundraiser was set up by Louies For Louis.
The charity aims to help children and their families feel less isolated, different, misunderstood and alone while working to save more lives and reduce the severity of the Acquired Brain Industry. They are the only charity in the UK dedicated solely to children who suffer from this illness, which anyone can get, at any time.
The Children’s Society
Last but by no means least is @TeamLouisNews‘s fundraiser for The Children’s Society.
The charity is based in the UK and aims to help children and young people who feel scared, unloved and unable to cope. They run vital local services and campaign to change laws and policies to help the most vulnerable young people. Working together with our supporters, they listen, support and act to show children they’re on their side.
Fans have been working super hard to raise funds for these three incredible charities and are all super close to hitting their targets! If you’re looking to celebrate Louis’s birthday by doing something meaningful, make sure you donate or share with those who can.
Louies, we salute you! And we know Louis himself will be so proud of everything you do.
