Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice

LONDON, U K (uk.celebrity.yahoo.com) - We're still struggling to see why One Direction fans get such a hard time from some people, because they have proved time and again that they're actually rather good eggs.

The latest proof of Directioners being entirely lovely and normal people comes with a side dish of charity and a whole load of generosity, with the fandom raising thousands and thousands of dollars for Louis Tomlinson's upcoming birthday.

With the sassiest popstar in the industry set to turn the big 2-3 on Christmas Eve, fans are just under $7,000 away from reaching their charitable target of $23,000 for Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice, a charity close to Louis' heart.

The grand total currently stands at $16,684.84, which converts to £10,677.27, with a whopping 383 individual donations being made.

The description on the charity drive's JustGiving page reads: "Louis Tomlinson has done so much for fans and for Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice so we, the fans, would like to give back - both to Louis and Bluebell Wood.

"In honor of his 23rd birthday, we are collecting donations for Bluebell Wood. Last year, we had a goal of $22,222 and raised more than $23,000.

"This year, we'd like to raise at least $23,000. We are also selling t-shirts and gear with the proceeds going to this charity drive."

The Doncaster-based hospice offers valuable care and support for children with a shortened life expectancy, and Lou is a proud patron of the local foundation.

Speaking about his involvement with Bluebell Wood, Louis has previously said: "It was really important for me to support a local charity.

"Bluebell Wood is such a great cause and I'm very proud to be able to help them with raising funds."
Well, with hoards of his dedicated and big-hearted fans donating in thousands to the hospice, you can't deny
that he has massively helped to raise funds for the charity.

Good going, Directioners - You're all bloomin' amazing.

And we bet that such a large donation being made in his name is the best birthday present that Louis could ever ask for.
