Everytown announces $100,000 donation following Harry Styles stay in Austin

Styles announced just days after the Uvalde school shooting that he would be collaborating with Everytown for part of his tour.

Austin, Texas – Harry Styles‘ Six-night stay at Austin’s Moody Center has significant political impact.

Every cityan organization dedicated to ending gun violence, announced Monday that “to celebrate the 100,000 fans who attended Styles’ residency,” $100,000 will be donated to the organization’s work.

Styles announced back in May that he would be collaborating with Everytown for a portion of his tour. Styles made the announcement on social media on May 28, just four days after the deadly Uvalde shooting that killed 19 children and two adults.

“Along with all of you, I have been absolutely devastated by the recent spate of mass shootings in America, culminating no later than Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas,” Styles said said in May. “On our North American tour, we will be partnering with Everytown who are working to end gun violence, donating to support their efforts and sharing their suggested actions.”

Partnering with Everytown was far from the only political decision Styles made during his Austin residency.

On October 2, after Styles spotted Texas gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke in the crowd, he stuck a “Beto for Texas” sticker on his guitar. At each of his shows, Styles had been open about Texas politics regarding abortion rights, registering residents to vote, and ending mass shootings.

O’Rourke later posted a photo taken with Styles with the caption, “Thanks Harry!”

Styles’ “Love On Tour” has also partnered with HeadCount, an organization dedicated to helping Americans sign up to vote. HeadCount said it worked with over 1,000 concertgoers at the six Austin shows to register them to vote or to check their registration status.

Styles played six nights at Austin’s Moody Center on the University of Texas campus. Special guest Gabriels opened each night of the residence for Styles.

Styles’ upcoming shows will be at the United Center in Chicago. Jessie Ware opens.
