Earlier this month we reported on One Direction’s new charity initiative. Our original blog from July 8 appears below. Just today Harry Styles released the following video which should bode well for Directioners and hopefully for young people questioning the value of education. Check out Harry’s video:
Besides Harry, bandmates Liam, Nail, and Louis have also spoken. Check it out:
Here at Beato’s Blog we wholly support any effort to educate our young and to keep them focused on education and bettering themselves. Bravo 1D. Keep the message going.
This week’s Side B award goes to none other than the world’s greatest boy band. . . . .One Direction. Earlier today 1D announced the launch of a new charity initiative called Action1D. In a video explaining the project, Directioners are asked by the band to share their thoughts on how they would want the world to look like in the future; the group is looking for creative content to raise awareness about significant issues affecting us all. And if you think that the 1D crew does not have some juice or ability to make a change, Shakira, Ben Affleck, Sir Richard Branson, Bill and Melinda Gates, Bono, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu are already among the other high-profile names supporting the campaign.
So, let’s hear from the boys themselves about what they are trying to do. Check it out:
In statement, the band had this to say:
“Time and again our fans have shown how creative and powerful they can be when they unite and that’s why we want to all join together to speak out and hopefully make a real and lasting change to the world around us. Young people really do have the power to help end poverty, tackle inequality and to stop dangerous climate change. Now is the time for us to unite, take action and raise our voices to show that we care about the future of our planet.”
Bravo 1D! You really can make a difference and indeed lead by example and this should fill our youth with good and positive thoughts. Sorry TMZ, we got this one.
