Harry Styles pledges big donation after Texas school shooting

British pop star Harry Styles is giving back a lot in the aftermath of the Uvalde, Texas shooting.

Styles, who is embarking on the next leg of his much-requested world tour in June with concert promoter Live Nation, announced that more than $1 million in tour revenue will go to gun advocacy group Everytown for Gun. Safety.

The group began after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that killed 26 including 20 children in 2012.

The shooting in Uvalde, Texas on Tuesday was the deadliest school shooting since the Sandy Hook tragedy.

Styles, who released his album “Harry’s House” last week, shared a message on Instagram on Friday encouraging fans to donate as well.

Styles shared the chilling statistic that guns are the leading cause of death among American children and teens, according to CDC data.

The singer has donated large sums to charitable causes in the past.

Styles’ previous performances on his ongoing Love on Tour concerts have raised more than $1 million for nonprofits, Variety reported.

It was “nearly the same amount” raised in half the number of dates on his previous tour in 2018, the magazine said.

The styles donated to Black Voters Matter and Physicians for Reproductive Health, among other nonprofits.

The singer was also able to register fans to vote through Headcount, an effort he also did on his previous tour, according to Variety.
