I'm so happy to announce we finally have the donation link for Harry's birthday charity drive for Switchboard up! I want to thank London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard (LLGS) for agreeing to apply to Just Giving so we could set up a page there. Our donors have found it easy to use so I'm so excited that we can do Harry's drive through there now. We'll also be doing auctions and of course we've got the I Study Rainbows wristbands for sale! Here it is! Go donate!
They’re here! The I Study Rainbows festival-style wristbands have arrived! Proceeds benefit our drive for London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard in honor of Harry Styles' birthday. You can get them here:
These are woven, rainbow-colored, festival-style bracelets with a non-locking closure. The bracelets say "I Study Rainbows" and have the 1D Fans Give logo on them. Proceeds from the bracelets will go to the charity drive for London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard in honor of Harry Styles' birthday. They are $7 each.
This is a pre-order. The bracelets should arrive 4/30 and will start shipping out the next day.
These handknit stuffed animals are inspired by One Direction's Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. Harry the Frog and Louis the Hedgehog want to come live with you! They are handknit, about six inches tall and looking for a new home! Note: While they are cute and cuddly, they are not toys and would not stand up to a childs play. Proceeds will benefit Harry's birthday charity drive for LLGS. This is a 5 day auction!
The Always in My Heart wristbands are here! They will benefit both the London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard (for Harry Styles' birthday charity drive) and the Eden Dora Trust (for Louis Tomlinson's birthday charity drive). The wristbands, based on Louis' tweet that reached more than 1 Million retweets recently are purple and say Always in My Heart on one side and 1M 22.02.2015 (the date the tweet reached 1 Million retweets). Get yours at:
I've put those the Always in my heart and #BRAVERY wristbands up for pre-order. The Always in my heart wristband proceeds will be split between Louis' drive for the Eden Dora Trust and Harry's drive for London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard. The #BRAVERY wristband will benefit the Eden Dora Trust. They are scheduled to arrive and start shipping around March 3. You can get them here:
(If you order other wristbands that aren't pre-orders, I'll hold your order until everything is here unless you let me know otherwise!)
We've just added a great design by Menu-tessu to Harry's charity drive stores. It's a galaxy-colored silhouette with the words "Long Hair Don't Care" written on it! Proceeds from Harry's charity store go to London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard. You can get your hands on gear with this design at:
Capital FM did an article about Harry's drive.
Sound the fanfare! One Direction’s Harry Styles has finally turned 21 years old, and his #Directioners got him a pretty awesome present.
Yep, 1D’s devoted fans decided to mark Harry’s 21st by donating a HUGE £11,000+ to charity, supporting the London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard, a volunteer organization that aims to ‘provide an information, support and referral service for lesbians, gay men, bisexual and trans people and anyone who needs to consider issues around their sexuality.’
You can read the full article here.
Here's another one for the Press page! MTV did a writeup on the 1D Fans Give charity drive for London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard in honor of Harry Styles' birthday. The article is here:
I love all the press we're getting although I've been called everything from "hardcore Directioner" to "superfan". Do these people realize I'm 40 years old? I feel like after a certain age just "fan" is fine LOL. Most people are worried about nudes or pics from keggers turning up in google searches...I just have to worry about "Super Dooper Directioner" being linked to my name for the rest of my life!
We've just announced the new charity drives for this year!
