Louis Tomlinson Donates $10k To Help Young Fan

Louis Tomlinson has donated $10,000 (all figures U.S.) to help a young fan with a rare condition that causes cerebral palsy.

The parents of 9-year-old Rylee Sanford of Georgia set up a fundraising page online asking for help for their daughter, who has a brain malformation called bilateral close-lipped schizencephaly.

According to her parents, Rylee can’t walk without assistance and can only speak a few words. They are hoping to raise $15,000 to make modifications to their home and provide "funding for certain medical needs.”

The message adds that Rylee loves former One Direction members Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne as well as Taylor Swift, Sam Hunt and Luke Bryan.

Tomlinson evidently gave $10,000 and shared the message: “Sending you all the love! Louis x”

Malik gave the YouCaring campaign a boost by sharing a link to the page with his 26.4 million followers. “Donate if you can. Big love to you Rylee,” he tweeted.
