Although the group is on a break from music, they are still spending time together and doing some good while they’re at it. Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson played for the Unicef Soccer Aid this Sunday at the Manchester Trafford Stadium.

The game raised about 7.8 million US dollars and the proceeds go to help mothers, babies and children under five years old living in Zimbabwe, Ethiopia and Myanmar. It’s to help provide food, clean water, and protection against abuse and violence. 70,000 fans turned out for the game and Executive Director of Unicef UK told DailyMail, “Soccer Aid has been a real example of what can be acheived when people come together to support children in danger around the world.”
