In honour of Harry Styles’ 22nd birthday tomorrow, two fans have created a charity drive for Believe in Magic.
As many One Direction fans know, Believe in Magic is a charity organization that is very close to the boys’ hearts. Harry Styles is an ambassador for the charity and has worked with them since the beginning. Believe in Magic was Founded in 2011 by 16-year-old Meg Bhari, who after being seriously ill and having 23 operations, decided to bring Magic to other very poorly Children across the UK. Today, the charity is run by Meg and her mother Jean.
Believe in Magic is a charity that spreads magic to the lives of seriously and terminally ill children across the United Kingdom. They spread magic through once-in-a-lifetime experiences, magical parties, and celebrity visits and gifts for children in hospitals and hospices. They will do anything they can to put a smile on the children’s faces. They bring magic and hope to the lives of many incredibly brave and truly inspirational children, giving them the fun, happiness and wonderful experiences that they deserve.
The charity drive for Harry’s birthday was created by Hannah Starkey and Rebecca Evans. Their goal is to reach £1,000, which will all be donated to Believe in Magic. We have talked to them about the charity drive and what inspired them to create it.
