Zayn Malik supports children's charity by putting first guitar up for auction

One Direction heartthrob Zayn Malik has shown his support for children's charity Kean's Children's Fund, which is based in Scotland, by giving the owner the first guitar he used in the boyband for them to auction off as a means of fundraising.

Charlie Kean, founder of the charity, explained that he was overwhelmed when he got a call from Malik offering him the instrument:

"The boys from One Direction really do support the charity but it's really Zayn and his mum Tricia that are always keen to lend a hand. I got a call from Zayn on (the) Sunday before the boys left for America and Tricia posted the guitar this week. I hope we'll get around £20,000. But the band have some really dedicated fans, so who knows?"

The 'Story Of My Life' heartthrobs, meanwhile, are currently on their Where We Are tour in South America.

I think I remember Niall doing something for kids with autism for one of his birthdays.
surefire14 2nd-May-2014 06:54 pm (UTC)
Wasn't aware he played guitar in the band (or at all.) I thought Niall was the only one who plays guitar in the band.

maybe he just owns one
surefire14 2nd-May-2014 07:25 pm (UTC)
Hmmm. Who knows? Whichever it is, it's super nice of him to donate for charity.
fiery_icicle 2nd-May-2014 07:51 pm (UTC)
i don't know about now but he, liam and harry were learning to play guitar a couple years ago. there's also pics of all three of them with guitars.

he's getting his dick wet, sis.
neverhft 2nd-May-2014 06:55 pm (UTC)
lol, his cheating ass would

stuff like this always cracks me up...like he could just donate money(way more than £20,000 actually) and not publicize it, but instead he decides to sell something he doesn't even need anymore(and I'm not even sure he can actually use) and call it generosity...rich people stay trying it

nice of him to help this charity out tho
flinkkamingo3 2nd-May-2014 07:04 pm (UTC)
he also bought his family a house, donated £500,000 of his own money to comic relief last year and didn't tell anyone about it, spent one of his breaks designing a gromit dog for charity that went for £26,000, etc., etc. and it's not like he's constantly tweeting about his charity projects for attention. most of the stuff he does flies under the radar, and it's pretty clear he does it because he wants to.
neverhft 2nd-May-2014 07:07 pm (UTC)
that's.............actually good to hear :)
