Nobody likes cancer and the boys of One Direction are utilizing their star power to do something about it. The quintet just announced that a small portion of the proceeds from the upcoming Where We Are 2014 Concert Tour are going to fund cancer research. The guys are also supporting Stand Up To Cancer during their tour in Ireland and the United Kingdom.

And that’s not all. The pop band also wants their fans to share how they are standing up in the fight against cancer. All they have to do is tweet One Direction with the #1DStandUp tag. The guys are also currently involved in another charity project as they teamed up with Office Depot to create a line of school supplies marketed towards tweens with proceeds going towards anti-bullying programs.

It’s good to know that there are still big celebrities who look beyond the perks of fame and money. Harry, Niall, Zayn, Liam, and Louis are awesome for their charity work. What do you think of One Direction’s current philanthropic projects? What projects do you hope the boys do next? Are you joining in on the fight cancer front and if so, will you share a tweet with One Direction?
