One Direction just made the announcement that proceeds from their Where We Are 2014 concert tour will be going to the Stand Up To Cancer organization. Here’s a note from Liam Payne about the 1D pledge to donate money to the organization:
We’re so proud to be supporting Stand Up To Cancer while touring the UK and Ireland. Cancer affects nearly everyone at some point in their lives so we all need to do what we can to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. Stand Up To Cancer is all about bringing people together as a collective force and we hope our fans will get involved too. We’d love for One Direction fans to tell us about their support by using the hashtag #1DStandUp.
Claire Rowney, the director of Stand Up To Cancer, added:
We’re over the moon that One Direction have chosen to support Stand Up To Cancer. The money raised will help fund groundbreaking research specifically designed to have an impact within just a few years, bringing new and kinder treatments to patients sooner. We want to thank them and their fans for their support.
Let us know if you get tickets to One Direction’s Where We Are concerts!
