The massacre at an elementary school in the US state of Texas has caused many people to react emotionally. Pop singer Harry Styles was also “deeply dismayed”. Now he wants to help.
British pop singer Harry Styles (28) wants to donate proceeds from his North American tour to an organization that campaigns for gun control and against gun violence.
The recent cases of gun violence in the United States, which culminated with the massacre in the Texan community of Uvalde at the Robb Elementary School, would have “deeply upset” him,” the musician wrote on Twitter on Friday.
He announced a partnership with the non-profit organization Everytown for Gun Safety, which aims to end gun violence. Styles and concert promoter Live Nation pledged a donation of over $1 million. From August to November, the musician has over 40 performances planned in North America.
An 18-year-old attacker stormed a Texas elementary school on Tuesday and barricaded himself in a fourth-grade classroom. He killed 19 children and two teachers before being shot dead by police.
