2020: The year Niall Horan gave back

Niall spent his year using his platform to do good and inspiring others to do the same.


As Niall Horan‘s sophomore album Heartbreak Weather dropped, the whole world seemed to shut down and with that take our plans away just as with his. We missed out on him touring with Lewis Capaldi, promo events, meeting fans, among many others.

But that wasn’t going to stop him at all. He decided this was the perfect time to give back. Niall’s heart of gold makes him a reason for pride and joy for Ireland and his fans. So let’s do a recap on all the ways he shared joy through this year.

Staring with the least expected, after he had to cancel his tour and gave the money back directly to his fans without hesitation. He began to constantly check on Niall Nation through his daily-four-hour-long Instagram streams and tweet sprees every other day trying to be a companion for all.

Inspired by his grandma, he decided to donate £100,000 to ALONE and Wheels In Meals which are both charities focused on including and providing services for the elderly in Ireland and in the US. At the same time, he donated WiFi-enabled tablets to every nursing home in Ireland to keep them connected to their loved ones during the lockdown!

To keep us sane and continue with his philanthropist work, Niall took on a few virtual gigs such as Together at Home, Elvis Stay At Home Ball, Global Citizen, and supporting charities such as Doctors Without Borders, a fundraising event supporting the London Irish Centre, and thanked the volunteers for the work they do.

To show the importance of the music industry and the crew that makes everything possible Niall paired with Drift and We Need Crew in a live-streamed fundraiser at the Royal Albert Hall. This show raised around $2.4 million.

This Christmas, Niall took action and donated to the Belfast Christmas Appeal 2020 which is an amazing drive that helps 3,500 local families by providing them with food, toys, and hampers.

All of this made him the receiver of the Prases Elit Award presented by the Dublin Law Society in recognition of his work ethics, talent, humility, and “Irishness” and made him gain love from the Irish and people all around the world.
