Louis Tomlinson showed one of his big fans some love by donating $10,000 to her medical costs.

9-year-old Rylee Sanford has a rare brain malformation called bilateral close-lipped schizencephaly, which ultimately causes cerebral palsy, according to the YouCaring fundraising page her parents set up. The page also mentions that Rylee loves “Zayn, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne” among other celebrities.

After the page was brought to his attention, Tomlinson made the donation with the message “Sending you all the love! Louis x”

He wasn’t the only former One Direction member to show support. Zayn Malik took to Twitter to share the cause, leading to a spike in donations.

Rylee’s parents have since posted on the YouCaring site--which is only $2,500 away from their $15,000 goal--thanking Directioners for their support: “We are forever grateful for the 1d members and fans.  We can never thank everyone enough for the donations and shares.”

Billboard has reached out to Tomlinson’s reps for comment.
