OH WILL SOMEONE GET THE ONE DIRECTION BLOKES A KNIGHTHOOD ALREADY. Not only are they generally lovely lads, potentially angels in disguise and definitely heaven sent creatures, but now they’ve raised a massive £600k for a cancer charity through their ticket sales.
If someone could grab some halos and fluffy wings that would be great, ’cause 1D have donated 50p from every ticket sold last year on their Where We Are world tour to Stand Up To Cancer, generating a massive £600k donation. Incredible.
Which, er, if our Year 6 maths teacher taught us anything at all, works out as 30,000,000 tickets – which is impressive in itself, no?
The figures were released by company ODOT (One Direction On Tour), and as far as we’re concerned, anything that involves Niall, Harry, Liam and Louis waggling their crotches around in the name of charity is a-okay and dandy with us.
The boys have previously raised shed loads of dollar for SUTC with competitions and the opportunity for fans to win once in a life time prizes, generally proving that they’re great and winning at life.
Moral of the story? One Direction concerts = donating money to charity. WIN WIN.
