One Direction

Rays of Sunshine Charity

The guys of One Direction are giving back this holiday season.

During a recent charity screening of their movie This Is Us organized for sick children in London, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne surprised fans with an impromptu performance.

The event was set up by the Rays of Sunshine Charity, which grants wishes for seriously ill U.K. kids and teens. The Brit boybanders are ambassadors for the charity.

Right before the screening, the four singers (Zayn Malik was feeling sick and couldn't make it) walked out into the local Cineworld movie theater to greet the 36 kids and their families, who were all beyond excited to see the 1D guys.

During their meet and greet, Styles, Tomlinson, Horan and Payne performed two songs, including their hit "What Makes You Beautiful." They posed for photos with many of the sick children and gave all the kids in attendance a One Direction T-shirt, a watch and two tickets to their upcoming 2014 world tour.

All the kids also got a bottle of 1D's fragrance Our Moment courtesy of The Fragrance Shop.

Talk about a magical day!

Rays of Sunshine tweeted lots of pics and special messages after the band's surprise visit, writing, "@onedirection you were unbelievable today! thank you so much 4 making wishes come true 4 so many inspirational children amazing ambassadors!"
