The big news of the day was the same sex marriage ruling in the US, which makes same sex marriage legal in all 50 states! We did a special drive today for Switchboard in honor of Harry Styles' bday to celebrate the ruling and we raised several hundred dollars!

What's Coming Up with the Charity Drives?

We have a bunch of activities planned for each of the charity drives! 


  • On February 22nd, we'll be doing a $5 day in honor of Eden Dora Trust's birthday! We've also got some items from Eden Dora Trust that we'll be both selling and auctioning off! 
  • Louis' newest wristbands have been ordered and will be up in the store as soon as they get here. They are teal and say #bravery on them!
  • I got my first Hedgehog Louis, but OMG he's going to be hard to dress. He has little arms and a big ole booty so we'll see what we can do! I already have the first outfit mostly planned! 


  • We have some March madness raffles coming up - still being planned!


  • Liam's drive is going to have an auction of a special limited edition item soon (Layne just sent it to me so I think it should arrive tomorrow). 


  • Zayn's team are planning festival bracelets, most likely in Rasta colors to match Zayn's in-ears! 

Girl Almighty:

  • The $5 instead of 50 Shades brought in some donations for Women's Aid so that's awesome! 


  • We've added a couple of new tshirt designs. Look how great the rainbow banana shirt turned out:

The best news for the Harry Team was that LLGS has decided to joint Just Giving! This means we will be able to offer you a donation link that's user-friendly and tracks percent donated! The total will also be displayed in US Dollars, which will make my life easier (if I never have to convert pounds to dollars again, I'll be a happy girl)!

So, that's a quick update for now!

$5 Instead of 50 Shades

This coming weekend, the poorly-written, abuse-romanticizing piece of crap known as 50 Shades of Grey is making it's big screen debut. While it's too late to stop the movie from being made (or the book from being written), we can all do our part to show Hollywood that this is not the kind of relationship we want to see being sold as "true love" by not going to see the movie. 

Instead of supporting 50 Shades, take some of the money that you might have put towards a night out at the movies and support women in need by donating to the 1D Fans Give "Girl Almighty" Charity Drive. We're making every day this week a $5 day, in the hopes that people choose to support an organization that helps women, instead of a movie that's trying to teach them that abuse is sexy.

Girl Almighty Drive to Support Women's Aid in Honor of One Direction's 5th Anniversary

We have a very special charity drive planned for this gap in between birthdays (seriously, all the guys' birthdays are clustered together). One Direction's 5th Anniversary is July 23 so in honor of that very special date, we will be raising money for Women's Aid, a charity that helps women and children by working to end domestic abuse. Inspired by the 1D song, Girl Almighty, this charity drive seeks to help women and children by supporting a charity that provides lifesaving services to keep them safe. You can donate here:


We have a great charity challenge planned that I know you will want to be a part of as well as some cool merch (wristbands, t-shirts, oh my) in the works. If you'd like to be a part of the planning process, drop Kasey, our Girl Almighty Team Leader, a line. In the meantime, check out the song that inspired this drive!
