The fans were also able to relate with this writing on the wall:
As we all know, fans may have been spending money (lots of it) for concerts, merchandise and a lot more but being a fan doesn’t start and just end with that. Being a fan is not just about supporting the group you like but also being able to share the love you have for your faves to other people as well. By having the heart to help and and the initiative to do these kinds of activities like a donation drive, fans are able to help others and bring smiles to their faces as well as contribute to the community.
